Can't Keep Up

It seems I've been running a day behind on my blogging. I intend to do it in the evenings, but then we end up watching a movie and I never do. I can't get up before the rest of you since I'm 4 hours behind the east coast. Guess this will have to do.

When you forget to plug in your vehicle at -19.7 it won't start. Hubby threw the space heater on it for a bit so I could get Elijah to the bus. On the way back home I brushed close enough to a moose to get my heart beating wildly. To my right was a drop-off steep enough to roll my van several times so I took my chance with the moose, and manage to squeak by. With our vehicle luck I'm surprised I didn't hit him.

Sure like having this fire to sit by when it is so chilly out. Olivia and I have been soaking our feet lately, and it feels so good.

She's lucky to have a sister who rubs her feet with lotion and a Mom who paints her cute little toes.

Time to cook dinner....still cold (-18) and dark.

Fajitas marinating and sauteing onions.

Mexican rice and beans.

Olivia got a hold of my camera. I wonder what Mr. White was saying?

My handsome men snuggling on the couch.

You are turning into a cooking maniac! I continue to be impressed.
I could not open what you sent me earlier!

By the way, I did not realize there was a 4 hour time difference!

The fajitas look great and the fire looks cozy. Can I come soak my feet with you?

You can keep the below zero up there and send the food down here. Looks yummy.

Let Olivia grab the camera more often - it was fun to see a picture of you also for a change. You probaby have thousands of pictures of everyone else and few of yourself. Crop that picture of you and your husbands faces - what a great shot!
