April 14th and 15th, 2018

Do you like my flowers?


I just picked them from my garden!

Okay...
NOT REALLY...
Just kidding!


It started out like this...
not so bad,
right!


But the snow never stopped!


It just kept coming...


Here is what April 14th and 15th looked like in Minnesota...


It looks like we completely missed spring this year...


Record low temps,
record snow,
record blizzard,
record depression,
record ice on the lakes,
record everything you don't want a record for...




The best part of a spring snowstorm is
that it will melt FAST!


It was a little too much weight for this tree!


Sarah was the first to go out and test the conditions!


We couldn't help ourselves...
we had to measure it!


Yes, that reads 19 inches...
because of the blowing a drifting.
It is NOT 19 inches everywhere...
Praise God!


Where did Sarah go?


Actually, the snow is a lot of fun for the kids!
They LOVE playing in it...
It's kinda like playing in the sand at the beach!
Kinda...


It was pretty funny watching the dogs try to run through the snow!


They weren't quite sure how to handle it!


They looked like bounding rabbits!
That's Quincy's back end in the air!


We are thankful that these two are getting along...
It was hard enough not keeping our Teddy...
Just can't bear to do it again...





Record low temps,
record snow,
record blizzard,
record depression,
record everything you don't want a record for...

Spring?
Where are you?

The average for today's date is 60 degrees...
What's wrong with average?
I like average!
I'm good with average!

It's the same thing in France. I live in Corsica, normally in April we go to the beach. This year, it's raining every day, it's cold. Spring is gone

What a beautiful flower arrangement. I can't believe how much snow you received! It's almost 80 here in my neck of the woods. Hopefully it begins to warm up for you, thanks for the article share.

I loved the pic of Sarah disappearing in
the snow!
So hope you are ok. Haven't heard from you for awhile.
Have you thought of using Instagram?..I have noticed some who used to blog are now using Instagram.
Hoping for a nice summer for you.

We are missing your blogs, but I realize you're not "required" to keep your fan base up to date with all the details of what's going on. Just know your family has become so special to SO many around the world. I'll continue to pray for you and that you feel the Lord's peace and presence surround you each and every day.

I'm missing you and stories of your kids. I hope you are all okay. I am also missing the the snow in the pictures from your last post. I am a Canadian girl(northern Canada at that) and the hot, humid weather that has rolled into the Niagara Falls area is making me wilt. I would choose snow every time. (I would actually choose spring or fall, but given the choice between summer and winter, winter would win) Sending prayers and good thoughts your way. You have been such an inspiration to many of us adoptive moms. I can say in all honesty, that my family would not be what it is today without you. You and Jim are the people I always pointed to when my husband said we were too old and already had too many kids. I referred him to your blog and made a call to our adoption practitioner for a home study update!

Man. I hope it's warming up for you. I love my garden. I hate when it is too cold (or like it is here: too hot!)....
