Sami's dance moves

I came across this video of Sami the other day. She is about 2 1/2 years old and showing off some of her dance moves. It's kind of short but I thought it was pretty entertaining.

Let it snow

Well, as you can see we've had a little bit o' weather. Lot's of it. Portland has been basically shut down for almost 2 weeks. They just can't handle the snow here, it's kind of amusing. Although it hasn't been very amusing that UPS has been out of business also. They are currently holding my xbox 360 hostage. For almost 2 weeks! I'm going through withdrawls. So UPS is on my bad list. (Sorry Ian) Anyhow, look forward to a Christmas post soon! Merry Christmahanakwanzica!

I really enjoyed my neighbors driver and passenger snowmen.
Sadly, we took a trip from Aarons' apartment back to mine, and what usually took 2 hours- took us 7. People were getting stuck, sliding off roads, and basically it was just a catastrophe. We had chains so we were fine, we were just worried about idiots around us.

Let's say thanks!

As many of you know, supporting our troops is quite personal, and very important to me. With 6 brothers serving in the Army or the Army National guard, you can see why. I love that Xerox has their "Let's say thanks" program. I'm not sure how many years they've done it, but I remember doing it last year. So in case you haven't heard about it, here goes: Xerox gives you tons of choices of postcard designs. These are patriotic post cards created by children all over the nation. You can then choose from several prepared messages of thanks to the troops, or write your own. Then Xerox prints these postcards and sends them to service men and women all over the world. All at no cost to us. Such a neat program and takes less than 5 mins! God bless our troops.

Snow day.

We got several inches of snow in Eugene the other day. Aaron got the day free from work because of it. So we got the kids all bundled up and went and played! It was so cold. We are supposed to get more snow for the rest of the week. Which is making me look forward to Arizona even more, and if the snow wasn't enough, we're in the 20's. Brrrrrr. (snot icicles)
I am getting pretty excited for Christmas, the girls are so cute about it this year, they are really into it. Sami and Aaron went and cut down a tree. It's so nice to have a real one, and it was only 15$.

Christmas programs!

The girls had their christmas programs at school last week. They say several songs, then got to meet Santa, and have cookies and punch. They had a great time and they did a good job singing.
