Our Ice Storm

     Dallas has had an ice storm that lasted about four days.  What a blast!  Thankfully, we never lost power, and so we had a great time.
     I took out the quilting project that I have had in the attic for over a year.  We finished Mary’s quilt top, and we have begun Clare’s.  We might finish it today after school.
    Then we do Annie’s, and then we actually quilt–put all three layers together.  I am excited!
    It was a blessing to be together.  Ron really rested; we read books and played games; we made lasagna and casseroles and kept 2 fires going the whole time.  I am so grateful that our kids do not really watch tv; they paint, sing, read, and when possible, make snowballs.  It was a truly, truly blessed weekend!
