Technical Difficulties

Hello all. My computer has been down for a couple weeks which is seriously hindering my blogging. I'm borrowing Trav's computer while he is sleeping and I can barely decipher a thing.

Did I mention that he works for an international company? Based out of Denmark? So all the computers are set to the Danish language. Slightly confusing.

ANYWAY, we have been very busy. We spent Thanksgiving in Milo with Trav's family. It was a lot of fun. Especially on Black Friday when Travis watched the girls and I woke up at 3:30 a.m. to go shopping with my mother-in-law and sister-in-law. We had such a great time!

Then last weekend we went to my twin Lisa's house for our annual deer hunting trip. Travis took some vacation time and it was a lot of fun. He didn't get a deer, but he loves being outdoors and the strategy of it all. The girls cried when we had to leave. Such a fun time.

I would show you pictures but no computer means no pics. Ugh.

Then we had a blizzard. (It was COLD and there was lots of SNOW and lots and lots of BLOWING SNOW and lots of DRIFTING.) My little sister Bonnie and her daughter Claire were snowed in with us all. :) She was visiting from Iowa City. We had a great time! I was thankful she was stuck with us.

What else...

When Violet took her afternoon nap today Madeline, Zella and I had a snowball fight in our yard. Madeline kept chasing me yelling, "You can run but you can't hide!". Zella loved making snow angels and throwing snowballs at me. It was cold so we weren't out for long. And of course we had to warm up with hot chocolate and hot apple cider once we got inside. All in all a good day.

We have a busy couple weeks ahead but I LOVE the holidays! And we are finally healthy (knock on wood).

It really IS the most wonderful time of the year, isn't it?*

More later when I either figure out how to fix my computer or break down and have it repaired,

*This is a rhetorical question. If you do not currently think it's the most time of the year please heed this advice:

Turn on your Christmas tree lights, make a cup of cocoa or cider and listen to some Christmas music.

See? That's better.
