First Snow

Well at least first real snow. In October it snowed for about an hour and then went back to raining. This whole time I've been here the weather man has kept on telling me that it is warm outside and that it is usually a lot colder this time of year. I didn't believe this so called weather man. I mean it has been in the 40's and 50's with a dip here and there in the 30's, how much colder can it get? Well, we have found out and I have a feeling that this is only the beginning. On Saturday night it snowed all night and we woke to everything covered in white and this morning we woke up to a lot more snow. I have come to the conclusion that I like the rain and I like the snow but I don't like it when they are together. It gets really messy and nasty outside. I know for a lot of you this isn't a big deal but when you put two Southern Californians in the snow it becomes a bigger deal.

Nick and Andrew in front of our place before church. Our house is on the side of the street with more sun so by the time we got outside a lot of the snow had already melted.

This is the parking lot at church so you can get a better idea of the snow.


I am finally getting around to doing a post on our Thanksgiving. This year we have a lot to be thankful for and I love that there is a day set aside to ponder over our many blessings. But I discovered this year that there isn't a whole lot of pondering going on when you are cooking Thanksgiving dinner for 18 people. We had two families from the ward over and a few people from Nicks school. Needless to say they made me feel like our little apartment was indeed very little especially when you have 6 kids running around, but I loved it. I loved the noise and chaos.

Here is about half of our party trying to work off dinner by playing a game of Bang. I don't think it helped very much.
