The Blizzard

The snow piled up about a foot over our side door.

Rachel trying to climb back in. Good thing she was wearing warm pajamas :)

The snow covered our covered porch and eliminated our front steps.

After our neighbors and us shoveled the driveway for a few hours.

Our cars were packed in good.

You wouldn't know this by looking, but there is an entire car buried in snow on the left

I hope no one is in the car...

I shoveled the sidewalk!

We only had enough energy to shovel half of the steps.

The finished product.

New Years

Chris and I went hiking at Elachee for his birthday/New Years Eve. He had no idea what we were going to do that day, so it was a fun surprise. I packed us a picnic complete with a birthday brownie and birthday candle :)

Suspension Bridge

"The Big Oak Tree," as my campers call it.

I love this guy.

The Hand

I put a hitch in our Christmas Eve plans by going to the emergency room after stabbing my hand with a very sharp knife while peeling apples. I'm all healed now, but for awhile my everyday activities were hindered-- or at least performed with only one hand.

I obviously had to track my wound's journey... Oh yeah, and I got three stiches!

Christmas 2010

Wow, so I've been pretty horrible about updating my blog. Woops...

Let's see if I can remember back two months ago...

Rachel and I decorated the apartment with lights and ourselves with ugly Christmas sweaters.

Chris visited IC, and we drank lots of coffee :)

We also did some shopping.

There's about five more where that came from. Mom went all out!

Lauren and John had us for lunch on Christmas Day. Delicious!

Mom and Dad gave C.J. the Camero-- he was shocked.
