I know we live in Nebraska, but c'mon Mother Nature! Give us a break! It's April for crying out loud! Now that I got that out of my system here are some pics from the Easter egg hunt we went to yesterday. Joey stayed home with big brother John. He would have hated every minute of it. It was a combination of 3 of his very least favorite things ~ wind, cold, and more wind. It would also spit a few raindrops now then then for added comfort. We were in a big blizzard warning last night. Highways and interstate roads were closed and no travel recommended. It started sleeting last night and the wind was howling. Not sure what time the snow started but we lost power about 2am. And of course, with no electricity, something triggered the girls to wake up. Fun. That got Tommie up and he was bound and determined to call the electric company to get them to our house ASAP. He went around with my 1 lone candle I have (candles are no-no's in our house for several little reasons) flipping light switches. The lights came back about 4:30am and we definately knew it cause all the switches were on. John and Joey slept through the whole thing and this morning we woke up to ice and snow covered trees and streets. Now at post time, it is still windy and cold but the sun peeks out once in awhile. Perfect day to stay indoors ~ just the 7 of us! Yep, just the 7 of us! It sure is cozy ~ yep, just the 7 of us! All day! Yippee! Enjoy the pics!
