Computer Glitch

O.K. not really a glitch, more of a death. The hard drive on my laptop crashed last night. Totally and completely. Thankfully I saw it coming and had backed up all my photos and such. I was trying a recovery move, you know, F11 and all that. It never restarted after the disc wipe. When Todd called this morning and they walked him through a diagnostic my computer told him to replace the hard drive.
Praise the Lord that I have 36 days left on my warranty. Seriously.

And I'll try to blog all about Christmas when I get my computer back.

What do you think he's looking at?

P.S. The only editing I did to this photo was to crop it. He really did have that look on his face. What are the odds?

What Daddys Do....

...while the family is out shopping and the snow is falling and the Mommy is fussing at the kids, "Don't touch other people's cars! Leave that snow alone! Hurry up, it's cold!"
No, that's not our car. No, I have no idea whose car it is. Yes, I'm glad the owner didn't walk up while my husband was drawing on his or her car. Yes, Todd is now a super-hero in my kids' eyes. Again.

We had a little snow here last weekend. A very little. It was technically just a "dusting" but it was enough to get the kids (and parents) excited. It was really pretty and if you looked real hard for a large flat surface, you could maybe even scrape together enough snow for a small snowball to stow away in your mom's freezer.

Just so ya' know...

It's 24 degrees Fahrenheit according to and it feels like 18.
I tried to copy and paste the little box from the page but it won't let me. It will only let me take the little clouds. And what's up with there being no "degree" symbol on the keyboard? I hate that.
I have so many blog posts in my head to share with you. sigh. Unfortunately, I also have 3 kids to get to school and a job to get to. Hopefully I'll have some time this afternoon.

We did get the sign fixed within 12 hours.
Sorry the greeting's late. It was a busy day for us then I pretty much crashed the rest of the weekend. It was fabulous!
Here's the before and after of our at-home feast:

From home we went to some friends' and had a really fabulous meal/visit. It was a really great Thanksgiving!
