As mentioned yesterday, here's some videos:
This is Jessie cheering at the Northwestern basketball game. She is the one almost dead center in the black pants with glasses:
And here is Todd blowing snow out of our driveway:
This snowblower has been a lifesaver for us time and time again. Since we don't have a snow plow on the truck, Todd usually has to use the skidloader, but once you pile it so high, it starts drifting. Yesterday our road was down to just 1 lane for travel - we are out in the open on top of a hill, and when the wind starts blowing (which it pretty much does all the time anymore - or so it seems) - the snow tends to go up over the ridges made from the snowplows and then just pile up in great big drifts.
And WHOOO HOOOO! The Steelers won!!!! We went down to my in-laws for an early afternoon dinner, and then were home in plenty of time to watch the game. I worked on my applique some more in between watching the game.
Jessie also FINALLY decided what she is doing for her Science Fair project - she's growing a coal garden:
She was originally bound and determined that she was going to do it on how a calf is born, complete with pictures and everything, but since none of our cows are due until after March 1st, and the Science Fair is February 19th, that was out. We started her coal garden last night at 6:00, and above is what it looked like this morning. Tyler also started one - so it will be interesting to see how much they grow.
It was 40 degrees yesterday, so we spent lots of time outside shoveling snow, cleaning out dog water bowls and water troughs and enjoying the sunshine.
