We Have Snow!

Every accomplishment starts with the decision to try.

This is Brady after being outside for 4 1/2 hrs!  We finally got some
 snow Sunday evening.  We only got about 2 1/2 inches...but
 there was also a lot of drifting.  On Monday, Brady decided to go
 outside about 10am to shovel.  It was freezing out there.  It was so
windy...and I kept calling him to the front door to see if he wanted
to come in and get warmed up.  Nope!  He wanted to suprise
Daddy and finsh the driveway before he got home from work.  I finally
demanded that he come in for some lunch.  I threw his hat, gloves
and coat in the dryer to get warm.  As soon as he ate, he hurried
back outside.  He did nothing but shovel the entire time!  He came
to the door once with a Christmas package that the mailman
brought with his name on it.  I tried to get him to come in and open
it..but he said he would do it when he was finished shoveling.
Such a hard worker!  Daddy made a huge deal about it when he got
home...and Brady was so proud of himself!  He fished all evening
for compliments!  I wish this attitude of always trying to please his
parents would last forever!
And, would you believe, that his hands and shoulders were sore
the next day from all that shoveling?!  I thought that only happened
to us older people! 

Have a safe and happy New Year's weekend!

Good on ya Brady!
We ended up getting 5 inches around our place, much more in the mountains. My son and my husband went out and shoveled our entire drive and sidewalks as well as a friend's (he just had shoulder surgery). We get fined ($$$) around here if we don't shovel the sidewalks. We are expecting a high of 24 degrees today and 5 degrees tonight. YUCK!
Love the new header, Brady looks very handsome in that sweater and scarf.
