Christmas Snow!

We had the whitest Christmas on record here in NW Oregon. Portland got between 14-15 inches total by the time the whole storm was over... and it was terrible to get around in. Garbage service has not come in a couple of weeks, so our apartment's garbage area is completely overflowing. Like a full dumpster plus 2 dumpsters worth of garbage piled up around it. Mail has not come in about a week because the side streets were not plowed. We're just not used to that kind of weather. As pretty as it was, we're all glad the snow is melted (aside from the big piles on the side of the road and in parking lots). I'm also glad to be at home again. With all the bad weather we stayed in town to be closer to the hospital in case I went into labor.... which.... I'm still waiting;)

Christmas was fun this year because Dorothy was so much more into it. She still asks to open presents every now and then and loves to sing Jingle Bells. With all the snow and ice we had to carry her every time we went outside. We told her it was too icy! So she thinks now that it's too "spicy" outside. Evidently spice, ice, and now dice are all the same thing. Think that's confusing? Try explaining the whole little sister idea... I don't think she knows what's coming. Send me some labor vibes!!
