Winter Wonderland

Well today was our Christmas program at church, which I absolutely love.  We knew last night that we were suppose to get lots of snow and blizzard type conditions but were hoping it would be fine.  Todd got up bright and early to shovel.  After trying to decide if we were going or not because of safety especially with our kiddos we decided we could get there and had talked to friends that said if we were unable to get back we could stay at their house that wasn’t up on a hill like ours.  We got everyone ready and even packed extra clothes and shovels for our trip:)  We got out onto the road and then we were stuck!  We couldn’t go anywhere.  The wheels kept spinning.  Todd had to get out and shovel while I drove it took us quite a while just to get back in our driveway.  It was crazy!

Here we are in the car ready to go with shovel in tow.

Here’s Todd outside of the van shoveling while I was driving.

Here we are back safe and sound in our driveway!

Here’s the spot we were stuck.  Pretty pathetic huh?  This is right outside of our driveway!

Well once we got settled in we decided to hold a little testimony meeting and read some scriptures.  We had a very nice testimony meeting and then got to Ella who wanted to bear her testimony.  We all talked about how grateful we are to have the gospel in our lives and how we love our family and how blessed we are.  Ella bore her testimony on princesses and how Belle had a nice flower and a big beast!  What a way to end our meeting:).
