Ice Storm 2007


....or December Disturbance 2007 or Siberian Sunday 2007. Isn't it a hoot how our Oklahoma weather "events" are named?

So, what did your family do today besides watching the televised reports of salt trucks, the new salt barn, the grass with sleet, the trees with sleet, the roads with sleet, and the school, church and daycare closings?


We had a house-full here (eleven plus our usual four) for Chicken Enchilada Soup and games and a puzzle. It was a lively, rowdy time, but full of love and laughter.


The Meadows' Lifeschool does not close for inclement weather. However, if our electricity goes out (it's been flickering a lot), we may have a change of plans.


What will you do with your kids while we're iced in?

Try to keep them from getting frostbite! My boys don't care what the weather is like...they want to be outdoors. Somedays, I beg them to come inside and watch TV! Isn't that a hoot.

I know! I love the way they name them every year! It's hilarious!

How fun would it be to work from home today!

I have been DVR-ing all the cute, little Christmas shows, so I think we're going to snuggle up and spend the day feeling all warm and fuzzy...

I really wish I would have planned ahead and bought some Hot Cocoa!!!

Hope you all have electricity...I know two of my daughters are without.

We're still good here, so far! (Monday night)

I LOVE being iced-in. Wendy (a sweet 16 year old that lives with us) made us hot cocoa and colored with the boys. We put up our new tree while listening to Christmas music. (our new cat destroyed the old one we had up) My older boys played outside a TON...they loved hunting for icicles. We have 3 lab puppies that Wendy gave a bath and we played with in the kitchen. When my husband got home we all me, her, Wendy and Taylor (Wendy's boyfriend) played scrabble and ate oreos while the boys watched Finding Nemo and ate popcorn!

Besides hanging out at your house--one of the 11 extras :) I spent the entire afternoon making gerbera daisies out of royal icing (my cake class final is Saturday). I would've kept baking all day had I not lost power. :(
