Happy to be at Work!!!

Well folks, I never thought I'd live to see the day that I would be excited to be at work-- but it's come. I am so happy to finally be working today! I thought I was going to go crazy yesterday. After being snowed in for 2 days I finally ran out of things to do. I did 4 loads of laundry, decorated my house for Christmas, baked muffins, baked cupcakes, made a huge meal for supper, cleaned my house from top to bottom, then organized it from top to bottom, and then I was bored. It was so nice to get up this morning with a purpose! However, I am swamped today with half a week's worth of work piled up for me to do! The forecast does not look promising for tomorrow, more snow and bad driving conditions, so this may be the only day I have at work this week! Does anyone have any suggestions of what I can do tomorrow, in case I'm stranded at home again?

Meet Our Niece Keziah

This week was a special one for Doug and I as we finally got to meet our new niece, Keziah Katherine Toews!!! At about 9:30pm on Wednesday night we got the phone call to come to the hospital where we were intoduced to beautiful Keziah. Since then our days have been filled with many hours watching and holding our new niece. We love you Keziah!

Here I am meeting Keziah for the first time! Isn't she precious?

Here's Doug with little Keziah!

This morning we all woke up to a blizzard in Abbotsford. We all made it to church this morning, but then barely made it to Doug's parent's house for lunch! The boys got called up the hill at one point to help push Mom and Dad Toews' car up the hill! Since then it has snowed about 46 cms, and is still going strong. It's starting to look like Doug and I may be snowed in here for the night, so we may be having a sleep over all together! I also may not be heading into work tomorrow morning if this keeps up! The boys of the house however, decided to enjoy the great outdoors by hanging out in the hot tub! Doesn't it look like fun?
