We finally got a good start to the snowpack.  It was really cold here yesterday (about -20 to -30), but thankfully the car still started (I forgot to plug it in).  We are digging out today, with the snow supposed to be coming all day.  It makes a really good base for the skiing, though.  I was out this morning shoveling out my driveway so I could get out, but I started before the plows came through.  Needless to say, I was clearing plow berms three times before I even left for work, and will probably have to do it again at noon.  Anyway, I am glad for the snow, we need the moisture very badly here.  I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and know that we are thinking of you.

Good Morning from Mom

Finally I have my computer fixed and can enjoy this blog with all of you.  I think it is a great idea - that way we can all keep up on what is happening in the family.
Marjean and Bruce were here over the weekend on their way home from their mission.  It was good to see them and we sure enjoyed their visit as we would any of you that wants to come this way.
We are going out to Richard's daughter's house for Thanksgiving.  Christie has sure been a help for everything the family does.  It looks like Garth's mother (Garth is Christie's husband) will be here too - along with Brian  and Tashina.  Brian sure seems to like living in my house.  The ward has been good for them and they love it there.

Richard is back on his schedule of teaching a gospel study class on Tuesday nights again.  Thhis year we are studying the Old Testament.  The people that come sure enjoy his lessons and so do I.  We have come to love these people.  They are just like family and have been so good to include me in everything going on here.  I really feel accepted. 

I am teaching Relief Society now.  A teacher I am not, but I'm giving it a try.  The word has gotten out about my sewing, so I've had a few little jobs to do.  I do enjoy it though.  It's so nice to see people so happy about what I can do for them.

We really have a nice place to live here and I am happy.  It is just No fun to be alone.  Richard is very good to me and lets me do just about anything I want to do.

It is good to see some of the things you all are doing. Please keep up on posting your blogs.

Love you all

Dads passing

Just wanted to tell you all thank you for your thoughts, prayers and love at the passing of my Dad.  I will miss him so much, but I also know he is in a much better place, with my Mom and little Sister.  It sure seems strange not to have your parents just a phone call away. 

Thanks again for your love
