April 30, 2011 Snow Storm

I uploaded some pictures to Flickr of the snow storm we had on Saturday.  There were just too many to post on my blog.  So you can see the album here.

It had rained  all afternoon and evening on Friday.  Friday night at about 11:00 the wind really came up but it was still just raining.  We woke up Saturday morning to an all out blizzard.  The heaviest, wettest snow ever!  It wreaked havoc on the power lines and trees.  We lost power Saturday morning at about 4:00 and it didn't come back on again until Monday night.  Thankfully my in-laws have a generator so we were able to make it up to their house around supper time when the snow finally stopped.  We stayed there and had warm water, heat, food, tv, and yes, even internet.  We were the lucky ones!  Many people stayed home with no power and no water.  To top it off, many people in Williston ended up with water in their basements because they couldn't run their sump pumps.  What a mess!  It really makes me appreciate being home and being able to do laundry and even cleaning house seems kind of nice!

I Told You She's A Girly Girl



I knew in the last post that I was missing a big story.  This is naptime on Monday.  She was sooooo tired.  She was nearly falling asleep when I was reading to her.  So when I left the room I thought it was a sure thing.  I went out to do school with Em and Grace only to come back later and find that she had gotten my make-up bag and was getting herself all fixed up!

So then this morning I am getting ready, having forgotten all about Lydia playing with my make-up.  When I went to put the concealer under my eyes it went on a very sparkly brown!  I can see why we don't put eye shadow under our eyes!  By the time I finished putting on my make-up, let's just say I was looking a bit orange.  It wasn't my best make-up day.  So I washed up my make-up brushes and hopefully tomorrow I will look a little better!

Nail Polish?


No, it's not nail polish.  It is actually white out.  We were all busy watching American Idol.  I had already gotten up once to answer the phone and busted Lydia in her sisters' room wreaking havoc.  But we all got busy watching the show again and not long later when the phone rang again I discovered Lydia with the white out.  I was really mad.  But then I looked at what she had done.  Lucky for her she didn't really get any on the floor.  I couldn't help but giggle when I saw that she had simply thought it was nail polish and painted not only her fingernails, but also her toenails.  What a girly girl, huh?  
I think I could probably start a blog just on the things that Lydia gets into right now.  It is most definitely the terrible two's with this one.  At grandma's this weekend she was playing in the toilet and finding things in the entry cupboard that she wasn't supposed to have.  On top of that I feel like all we do is clean up after her disasters, whether it is things she's not supposed to be in or even just the toys she scatters over the entire house.   
I'll just end this by saying that it is a darn good thing she is so cute!
