When it rains, it pours....

...or you get 2 feet of snow! I, like many others, love a good snow storm. Don't get me wrong, right now...I can't wait for the spring! I long for a 60 degree day with SUN to just play outside! But, I digress...I do love the snow. So, when in early February we got a few inches of snow, I was excited! Then a few days later, yet another snow storm with another few inches of snow! Then, again, another few days later and another snow storm! This snow storm came last Monday and brought another 7 or 8 inches of snow. On a regular day, I would have been thrilled. But this day, it just added to the stress. Brain woke up that morning feeling a little sick to his stomach. He went to work anyway, but was home by 9:30...this is NOT like him at all! He was so sick and in so much pain. So, late in the morning, we decided to head to the emergency room. It was decided that he had appendicitis and was in surgery by 2:30 to have it removed! What a shock! He is doing much better, after spending 24 hours in the hospital, and we are so grateful to our friends and family for the support, prayers and help over the last week. And to top it off, our furnace went out at the same time! Unbelievable! But, God provided so much for us, including protection. I love it that even in such a hard time, there is still a peace that passes all understanding. God is so good!

But, here are a few pictures of the kids in the snow. We have loved it!

So, with another inch of snow coming today....I am ready for the sun and the spring!

Leah is such a cutie!! I needed a snow suit for Eden this year. With all the snow she didn't get to play in any of it!
