Let it Snow! Let it Snow!

Before we knew church was canceled.
The last few days the weather man has been telling us here in Oregon that it was going to snow. Well he was right! This morning as we were getting ready for church it started to snow. At first I thought it was just going to snow a little bit. So i continued to get the boys ready for church. After blow drying my hair. I decided to check and see if it was still snowing. Well, it was a whole lot of it. Thank goodness Linda saw us and told us that church had been canceled because it was snowing so bad. I have been told by some that it does not really snow in Portland. Well the last two winters we have been here there has been snow!
Jason and Matthew were very excited. Jason got undressed and put on his snow pants. So, I helped him get the rest of his snow stuff on. Then Matthew wanted to get on some snow stuff too. We really do not have anything for a toddler to play in the snow. So, we made use of what we do have and the two boys went outside to play in the snow. They really liked it more then I thought they would. They played outside for like an 45 minutes then when they were really cold they decided to come back inside. I have added some picture of our winter wonderland. Matthew helped sweep the snow off our deck. This is him sweeping the snow.

I just wanted to say that I had a great Thanksgiving this year... most of all I was grateful to spend it with my wonderful family! It was nice to take a short break from school and not do any studying for a few days, too. Surprisingly, the weather was pretty good in the Pacific Northwest. The funny thing is that it rained in Mesa and it didn't rain in Portland while I was at home in Oregon.

Since I flew in late Tuesday night, Stephanie and I thought it would be fun to surprise the boys by keeping it a secret that I was coming. Jason and Matthew went to bed as usual that night, and when they woke up the next morning, there I was! It was pretty fun to surprise them like that. Gavin wasn't too surprised (obviously), but I was very excited to see him and hold him. I do think he's the cutest baby I've ever seen! :)

When I got back to Arizona, I decided to add myself as an author of this blog, so I won't have to hack into Stephanie's account anymore. This will make it more convenient for me, and so you might see more posts from me in the future. Well, I'd better get back to studying!
