Today Megan received notice that she was accepted to BYU. She has been an incredible student and her hard work has paid off. I am so proud of her and thrilled for her future. She is still waiting to hear from William and Mary and UVA, but BYU seemed to be her favored choice, so I am grateful she has the option. Hooray for Megan Elizabeth!!!!

On Valentines Day twenty-three years ago, I received an amazing gift... I became a mother. I fell head over heals in love with my little bald headed valentine. We named him Gregory Scott and it has been a thrill to watch that little baby become a great man. Jay and I are so grateful to have such a son to forge the way for our children. Greg is a delight to be around, he can turn any event into a celebration and lives his life with honor, integrity and fun. It has been 5 years since I have spent a birthday with this boy and I miss him. I hope he can feel my fierce mother love clear across the country. Happy Birthday Greg!!! I love you!!!!

We were all outside sledding, shoveling and snow cave building... our dog, Max was alone in the house. With a new costco size bag of chocolate chips in the pantry to get us through the storm, an almost gone bag was left on the counter. Well Max made the lucky find and slipped his nose in to get a taste... a little further to get the last of the chocolaty chips and guess what... his head was stuck in the bag. Jay and Em were the first ones in to find him with the bag on his head running into walls because he couldn't see a thing... poor Max! Pictured here is Matt and his cool snow cave and the neatly shoved driveway... FREEDOM! No school this week!!! Gotta love the snow days... off to make cookies...

We are safe and sound, cozy and snug... living in a winter wonderland... Friday school was canceled in anticipation of the big storm. Two feet of snow later we really are snowed in. Meg even arranged to have a dear friend snowed in as well! The view is breathtaking, our woods are magical. No church tomorrow and I would bet no school on Monday... lots of sledding and hot chocolate. Life is good!
