Winter is here!

We have more snow right now than we have had in several years. We just keep getting one storm after another and the snow just keeps piling up. It's crazy! But what can you expect when you live in Idaho. I think I'm ready to move south for the winter. Here are some pictures for your enjoyment. Hope you are wrapped up in a nice warm cozy blanket. You might want to go get a cup of hot chocolate to warm up after you see these.

The paper guy can't get into our box to deliver our paper.

This is behind our house.

Dont get lost Willy!

Can you find the propane tank?

Sadie hates the snow! Especially when she is in a tunnel of it!

It won't hurt my feelings one bit if Mother Nature decides to come for a visit early this year.

Thanks for all you did!

What a great man! He will truly be missed, but how lucky we are to have been alive while he was the Prophet. May we honor his memory by living the gospel that he taught us so well.

Someone emailed me this poem and I thought that I would share it with you.

I imagine he's running to Marjorie now, Yes, running, not waving his cane.
I see him embracing his father and mother,
While they keep repeating his name.
I see him now meeting his forebears, Brother Brigham and Joseph are there.
Sweet reunion of prophets, united by service That only such noble men share.
I see him embraced by the Savior while Father says, "Good and well done.
So faithful in stalwart endurance, I welcome My noble, most excellent son."
I then hear the ripples of laughter as he says the reception's just fine,
But he hopes that he'll get an assignment or two
Since there's no need to waste any time.
I can hear his clear voice in the stillness
At the close of this sweet Sabbath day,
Have faith and move forward, there's work to be done.
President Hinckley would want it that way.

God be with you President Hinckley til we meet again!
