Let it Snow! Let it Snow! Let it SNOW!

Shay, Todd and Low Rider shoveling our Driveway.

The boys (Manny, Kyle and Noble) put snow inside Noble's truck.

Devree in the taboggan to enjoy the snow.

Todd pulled Devree all around the neighborhood so she could enjoy the snow.
Our backyard with huge (4-5 ft) icicles hanging off the roof.

Well we got another bunch of snow yesterday so church is cancelled today! We are going to have a lesson at home and Todd and Noble are going to walk to their home teaching appointments today. They all live in the same neighborhood as us. What a beautiful blanket.

On Wednesday the kids went back to school and what a hectic day. We had the Northern Nevada Childrens Cancer Group party. It was in Reno at the Eldorado. The roads were still horrible and that day Devree had her OT and PT appointments, Noble helped with Cub Scouts and Dane was there too. We had to pick up everyone on our way and we were 45 minutes late because of traffic and snow. We all had a marvelous time and the food was fantastic. Santa and Mrs. Claus gave out gifts for all of the children and their siblings. Dane got a very cool remote control, helicopter and flying saucer. The rest got a stuffed gorilla and a $15. Walmart gift card.
Thursday was busy again with taking Devree to a gastroentologist to see if we can get her whole digestive system working better. He wants her to get an xray of her bowels. He told her to drink twice as much and to go back to the high calorie drink and a few other things. After we left, Devree started to cry because she said "I don't like being broken". She has had a much better short week at school.

Friday Todd and I went to the temple and as we passed Washoe Lake within 1/4 of a mile, there were 4 cars slid off the road and one car rolled. There were only 10 people in the temple session and Todd and I were the witness couple. The snow started to come down again.

Saturday, Noble and Shay wanted to go Christmas shopping so we all went and it was funny to see the boys get so excited about the Goodwill store. They love the interesting things you can find and found some gifts for Todd. We got the final things done and the snow was really coming down. You know the kind when you walk to the car from the store and you are covered in a blanket of white? So we got probably 6 more inches of snow.
I have one more funny story. We have been listening to Christmas music on the radio and Noble and Devree informed me that there was this one singer that sang "Silent Night" like a goat. Then Noble started to immitate the singer using his voice vibrato to hold the notes in Silent Night and sounding like a goat. So as we were driving in the car yesterday, and listening to the radio the singer comes on singing "Silent Night". It was Stevie Nicks from Fleetwood Mac! So listen the next time and see if you can hear the goat!
Have a happy Sabbath!
