Post Christmas Post

Well I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas, we had a great time with our families in Ames. The weather was not the best, but everyone made it safe and sound - even if their luggage didn't. It was great seeing everyone and the time seemed too short. I wish we could have stayed until New Years! Thanks to everyone for all their help and effort making every one's schedule mesh - I know that isn't easy! I hope we can do the same next year.

Here are some cute pictures of Max sledding for the first time. This was at my Mom and Dad's house.

Ice storm

So another ice storm is hitting Iowa. It makes everything look beautiful - like it was dipped in sugar. But you know looking at it that it is also dangerous too. It's not that bad to drive since the plows have been out all day- but when we went to get groceries the store was out of power due to ice on the lines. Most of Iowa City is out of power, but we are fine since our powerlines are buried out here. Sometimes I think we must be crazy to live here.
