PWe spent the afternoon with the youngest of our granddaughters who turned 3 this week. We have 8 grandchildren 4 boys and 4 girls. The ages are 9,6,5,5,4,3,2,2. Girl, Girl, Boy, Boy, Girl, Girl, Boy, Boy. 4 live in Minnesota and 4 live in Washington State. 

Time is going by fast. The two older ones ,here , will be starting school this year. Two older girls in Washington are in school and their younger brother will also start school this year. Each year is busier with concerts, games and all the  activities of sharing life with little ones.
Side note:
I had to give up babysitting on a daily basis. Daycare is going well. We found a home daycare who is a teacher taking some time off. It has been good for all of us. We still pick the kids up from daycare when their mom works past 5 but so far so good. I love the way God provides when we need it.

It will be snowing all night up to 10 more inches so this is round one blowing snow.

I am getting pretty good at driving this machine. It is a little big for me but hubby is 6'5" so he does most of the blowing snow and that us why we have the  bigger machine
Spring is only 5 weeks away!!!

I am looking for some chairs to put in the bay window. Here is an option but I am am still looking.
They were very comfortable and a good size for in front of the bay window.
I am also looking for lamps for the living room. I need 2 on each side of the sofa one or two in the bay window and one or two on each side of the TV cabinet . This has been a difficult task. I want them to blend but not match exactly. Hope to find something soon.
This is one of the least expensive options. Most are around 200.00 dollars so making a decision could be costly . Where is a good place to look? I have been to every furniture store here in Saint Cloud .

The back yard snow keeps blowing around . 
It has gone away from the door a little but is still pretty deep to venture out there just yet.
The front screen storm door was still freezing up today 
It is pretty don't ya think?
When you travel done the street you have piles of snow and then a driveway. It did not show up well but it is kind of funny.

The wind has been blowing the snow up against the fence. We hope to paint or stain it white this summer
You can see the snow is almost up to the windows. Hope we don't get much more but it is possible.

We had to plow again today because of the blowing snow.
We might lose the stop sign soon if we continue with blizzards . Our last snow is in April then Spring will come .
