Back yard... Isn't the coloring wonderful!! I did NOT alter the color on these first pictures!
We began to think that we might be in for a little more than originally thought!
Night #2 with no power - we still had the core of the house at a decent temperature (meaning the floors didn't feel like walking on a frozen pond). The fire was going and we had fun listening to nothing but the fire crackle and doing trivia questions! Tessa and Daddy below!
And the next day we ventured out for more "stuff" since we were hearing that it would be days still! We were very discouraged to still see road down to one lane in places right at the end of our street - yikes! The house was freezing when we woke up - but we can do it, it's still kind of fun!
We (Michael) refused to be separated from Snoopy so we made a phone call and blasted out of here with a huge suitcase headed for a dog friendly hotel! Thank you Homewood Suites! We secured a two bedroom, two bathroom, kitchen, and living room suite for the night! It was NICE to lay down with the kids in another room and just be still... We all bathed and hit the sack very early (like 7:30!)
How often do you see a dog in a hotel - he was trying to attack me, so cute??? And a gitty momma with delivery food on the way! Is there a book on the nightstand? NOOO! For the first time in I don't know how long - I didn't read one page of my book. I went two days without reading (or re-reading I should say!)
