Snow days!




We experienced one of those oh so rare snow snow days today and we get another tomorrow. The girls are thrilled, Jeff is stuck in Edmond and I have cabin fever. We are supposed to get above freezing tomorow afternoon and the snow has stopped so I will be able to get and hopefully Jeff will get home for the weekend.

The picture on top is a a gorgeous Oklahoma sunrise. That barn is just east of our property. It is metal and rattles when the wind gets going. Just a few days after I took the picture we had very strong winds that took that barn down...finally. There's very little left standing and pieces of it ended up in our yard.

A witch and a cat


Last night was a gorgeous night for Trick-or-Treat. The sky was clear, the winds calm for once and though it was cold, it was still a nice night.

Papa took the girls out around town while I sat on the porch with coffee to curb the chill and popcorn balls for the little spooks. We had quite a parade of goblins come by. I really wish Jeff could have been there. Last year he brought the fire bowl around front and we had a fire. I barely managed getting the giant pumpkins up in the yard.

The picture is of the girls and my friend Alison's kids, Kendyll and Quinten.
