Okay....below you can see the difference from the
left-over snow from last pictured here:
(remember the burried yellow truck that Nathan
uncovered and moved?).....

...and today's new snow:

the official name is now:

"The Blizzard of 2006 II"

It's an interesting snow...much different from last week's snow.
The wind is not near as fierce and therefore
the snow has stuck to the trees (unlike last week)
and they are absolutely beautiful!
Just see for yourself---you will have to scroll because
these are the "Blizzzard II" photos....and below them
are the pics from everyone playing in the
left-over snow of last week!

Above: last evening after about 6" of snow all afternoon
(when we missed our flight home!)....
Below: today Chandler trying his hand at shoveling!

Many of you know how Chandler's feet are always too hot
and hurting....well, he found a cure!

These are the pics from last week's snow:'s warm enough for short sleeves!

Nathan, the snow bunny.

Nathan---the poker bunny.

....oh, and I forgot to include
some photos of Presley....
here goes:

When asked, "What's your name?", Presley always answers,
"I'm a Howboy"
(COWboy....everything starts with an "H")

A "White" Christmas....

We have enjoyed our "White Christmas" in Denver....with almost my whole immediate family gathered together in spite of the Blizzard of 2006!
My dad's favorite spot: in front of the fireplace!

My mom enjoying all her Great Grandchildren!

All of the Great-Grandchildren!
(and Dawn)

It was great to have my newphew, Mark, with us
whom we haven't seen in a couple of years.




The whole gang in new PJ's!

Ethan with his "wheels" shoes!

Josiah's construction company is called "Trailmark Homes"...
so I thought this coffee mug was appropriate!


More playing in the snow!

...the saga continues...

Here are the daily updates....
well, actually, these were from yesterday,
last night, and today!

My dad in front of the fire!
The Gigantic Tree!!!

Okay...this is a great story! Josiah got the boy's sled,
opened the front door, ran & jumped
(hoping to sled down the yard into the street)
......and instead.....

We can see the snow-covered mountains from the upstair's windows!


Tiffany's house.

Ethan and his friend, Maddie.

Josiah made a "sofa" in the snow.


The day after...

Am I the only one who is amazed at the "snow mountains" in the parking lots??
