A Day in the Snow

I took Chelsea, Soffiya and Vanessa to John's house for the day the girls wanted to build a snowman, but it wasn't the right kind of snow. Instead they spent time just playing in the snow. The porch on the back of the house has a lot of steps going down so they had the bright idea of sliding down on their bellies.

They were at the pond looking into the water which is frozen. This was a very cold day it was only somewhere in the teens.

They took off running in the snow, way back in the yard is a deer blind in a tree they ended up leaving Alex and he came back, but they climbed into the blind and sit for awhile. They enjoyed their self and when they came in we had dinner then left to come back to Detroit.

Deep Freeze

It has been sooooo cold here that you can't get out without freezing your behind off. I woke up this morning at 6:00a.m. it was -1 degree but when I left for work at 8:30a.m. it was -12 degrees. The girls went out yesterday to get some snow pants because they want to build a snowman. Here's Chelsea, Vanessa, and Soffiya in the store trying on some snow pants and taking pictures. I was talking with soffiya and she doesn't want to go to San Francisco to live she wants to back to L.A. because San Francisco is too cold. I guess she would never want to live in Michigan because it's alot colder here than San Francisco. It's supposed to be really cold tonight and then start warming up to the 20's that will be a welcome relief.
(It's warmer in Anchorage, AK than in Michigan, can you believe that)

Chelsea's Return

I talked with Chelsea today and found out they got a late start, they didn't leave until around 11:00a.m. They're coming from Portsmouth, VA. I hope they get here before the next round of snow comes, which is headed our way either tonight or tomorrow along with some cooold weather.

Here's a picture of the girls when they were in Florida.

Chelsea's Next Adventure

I took Chelsea to the airport today, she is heading to Newport News, Va. Not somewhere she would choose to vacation. She's meeting a friend she was in Florida with and will be spending a few days there. On monday both girls are heading to Michigan in a car, Sophia will be spending a week or two with us before she heads to California. When she leaves us she'll meet another friend from Florida in Chicago and they will drive together a few states, and the girls dad will fly from California to a meeting point and they both will drive together back to California.

New Years Day

We had a nice relaxing day, didn't really do much of anything. Before dinner was done I caught mamaw stealing a fried potato. Then I got a picture of her acting like dad(sticking her tongue out). Dad did a really good job fixing dinner, he did it all I just brought over some desert.

After dinner we sat around the table, it started out with vanessa straighting Lisa's hair. Most of the time the kids were in the living room. Except when Alex had us playing Guess Who?.

We sat around the table listening to christian comedy, it was pretty funny we all had a good laugh. After that we sat around listening to gospel music some old and some new. Mamaw still remembered alot of the old stuff and would sing along like the rest of us. WE HAD CHURCH! Becky and Josh were listening to comedy with us, while the rest of the kids were in the living room playing guitar hero.

After the kids left it was time for Jess to take her nap.

I enjoyed our day, which didn't end until around 7p.m. when the last of us went home.
