No trip for me

All this cold, wind and snow made me decide to not make the trip to Iowa..thanks to my sis in making it possible for the folks to get to my nephew's wedding.. When the weather was nice it sounded like a good idea...guess I forgot how winter can be.

Last week all the grandkids had concerts at school and was able to get to them...

Saturday we had around 35 people here for a potluck was Chris' family on his mother's side..There was plenty of food and the kids had a good time playing together..

The outdoor wood stove is doing a good job of keeping the house comfy..especially with the below zero was already -11.

No pictures with this post as the newest ones are downloaded on the new computer that does not have internet..

Yesterday I went to Trevor's DARE graduation...There are only 6 kids in his they all read what they learned from the class.
There was a special awared given and Trevor was the one that the teachers chose to get.. It is in memory of one of the teacher's grandfather who used to teach the class.

Winter is here!!

Just some pictures of the weather here..the last of the sky yesterday before the snow...and the others are what I see out my windows...thought it was so pretty how the snow just capped the flower heads.. and the light is just right very early in the morning..
Chris has been working on putting my new computer in..he showed me how to load my pictures and etc. on worked on that today... right now I have 2 computers..cuz we don't have the wireless card installed in the new one yet..
I'm still learning how these things work...don't know if I will ever catch on to all of it......
