If Only I Had A Bearskin Rug

All schools were canceled here in Rupe-town for the rest of the week because of the blizzard we've been having for the past couple of hours.
It makes me want to do this:
 While eating this:
Instead, I am sitting at work, watching the wind whip at the windows while snow blows in every direction.. Ugh! So what do I do while 3/4 of Rupert is all cozy at home? 
It may entail fries-
Which I may have ordered with my lunch-
I may have enjoyed them-
Even though it's a no-no!
Guilt is setting in, but only in the parts of my body that the fry fat hasn't reached yet...so I guess my guilt isn't that much! I taught Zumba this morning and will teach it again tonight. That will cancel out SOME of those fry calories...or maybe I'll just use those burned calories to fulfill my current daydream of a fireplace, hot chocolate and warm cookies. Now if I only had a bearskin rug...

And So It Begins...


Front Yard
 We woke up at 7:30 am to kids screaming. The neighbor kids had realized it snowed over 4 inches. Needless to say, Aggie joined in the action. It was her first time with snow, and she went crazy!

Aggie Loves Her Some Snow - noticed her covered face?

Our little home is looking more and more like just that - a home. Our grass is now lush and it was time to up the ante. Some friends have a tree farm and helped us get some foliage for our yard. Garret is such a hard worker and with the help of our friend Tyler, five trees were dug up and planted in our yard. It has completely changed the look of our house.In all we planted four maple trees and one oak. Garrett said he got the oak tree so that when he becomes the prophet he can make his pulpit out of it. Good luck with that Garr.
All five trees.

First tree planted. Don't dog the tree planting clothes I have on.

Garrett, his dad (Dean), and Tyler - the tree man.

I can't wait to start raking up leaves!
