My sister

Oh what a lovely morning! Let me start by giving a list of things I am thankful for this morning:

  1. heat
  2. electricity
  3. TV
  4. Internet
  5. hot water
These are all the things I was without for about 7 hours yesterday. It may have been ok if I didn't live in an old house and have 4 restless children. Let's start by saying if you live on the east coast you may have experienced this:
Yup, that's snow. Not even November and we get a snow storm. At 9am yesterday power went out. By 10am it was cold enough in my house that we needed to be fully clothed with a few layers. By 1pm we were snuggled under blankets and wearing coats. LOL!! I was supposed to be at work at 1:30pm. I drove down there to get some candles and ask if it was ok I came in later. They were super slow so they didn't mind I didn't come in until 4. I went home and snuggled with my kids. Honestly the 3 lil ones were super warm, didn't seem bothered by the ice cold house. Well since I bought a lighter with the candles, around 3pm I lit the stove so we could make some warm food. As I was headed out around 3:55, just as I was walking out the door the power came back on. OHHHH what a relief. Thankfully we had a couple charged laptops that we could watch movies on for a bit but otherwise it was quite an uneventful day.

So this morning I wake to a warm house, dishwasher and washer running, laptop charging, TV's on and my coffee brewed and waiting for me to drink. All those "luxuries" I couldn't live without.

Well anywho, today I have a gorgeous LO to share with you that Abby created using October monthly kit. There are still some left, click here if you would like to purchase one.

Beautiful layout from Abby! So glad to hear that your power came on! You've officially had more snow than I did here in Wisconsin, but I'm sure we'll surpass you in no time. Well, at least you got to spend some quality time with your kiddos!
