Christmas Day

We had an excellent Christmas morning everyone slept a bit late and awoke in a good mood. Sean got a couple of movies and game for his PSP, enough said. He was occupied for the remainder of the day. Walter got a nice work coat that will keep him warm even in temperatures down to -25-degrees.


Walter & Sean work on a PSP game together early on Christmas morning.

The boys and I attended Christmas services at church. It was a very nice service, lots of hymns. This evening we went to the family get together at the Owens' house. Everyone had plenty to eat and enjoyed the time together.


Dad, Sean & Dean in deep in conversation.

Final Exams

The guys are finishing up their final exams tonight. Walt turned his in last night at and Dean is in class completing his.

A Wintry Mix

A wintry mix has once again descended upon our area, so far there has been very little precipitation. But it looks like the adverse weather will be hitting the area after the kids get into school this morning.

Snowball Alert


Preparing a snowball.

Pay back.


Success

Schools Out

The children received their first snow day of the year. The ice and snow are making the back roads unpassable for the buses. It may warm up some and allow the streets to clear up so that they can get back to school tomorrow.

A December Snow

A minor miracle has occured here, snow in December. Here in beginnings of the South we usually don't get any of this fluffy white stuff until January or February. Schools are beginning as normal, if the temperature drops they may be home early.


Surprize we really did get some accumulation, and the kids did get out of school a bit early for the day.
