A New Blanket

Late this afternoon it starting snowing these huge, beautiful, fluffy snowflakes that covered the white blanket on the farm with a clean new layer of white.

We have a lot of snow already, but it has been so bitterly cold that the kids have not been able to enjoy it at all.

When Blake got home this evening, I checked the temperature and it was not only above zero, but it was 32 degrees!

Well, it made an easy decision for a late bed time for everyone so we could play in the snow!

I thought the littles were going to split in half they were so clear excited!








It was an hour that made huge memories, and also made for very quick baths and bedtime routine! The littles were asleep in two seconds flat!

I am sad to say that it was during bath time that we got a call from Grant and he has been in a car accident on his way home from work. He and the elderly gentleman that collided with him ended up in a cornfield but they are both ok. I am not sure about Grant’s car, but Blake is with him now and they are waiting on the tow trucks to arrive.

Oh, my Mama’s heart. I love snow, but I would love it a whole lot more if no one had to drive in it.

Our new blanket is still very beautiful!!

    I hope all is okay with Grant and his car. Sorry your fun evening had to have a bummer ending. 🙁 However, I’m glad no one was seriously hurt and that the Littles had fun!

      We are so thankful Grant is OK, and the gentleman is OK too. Grant fishtailed in the snow, and three cars managed to miss him before this guy hit him. Grant’s car is a complete loss. Bummer! The littles did have fun!!

      We are praising the Lord for Grant’s protection! We pray for protection for his drive to and from work on these country roads. No, that call was not fun, but it could have been so much worse – so thankful!!
