This year we are embracing winter more– perhaps it is because we have a snow blower? YAY! Not that I didn’t enjoy shoveling…and we’ve been lucky that we have some great neighbors that have bailed us out, but seriously…it makes living in Minnesota a lot less stressful!

No, that’s not the surface of Mars- that is the side of our house after the Blizzard! We had a total of about 7-8 inches. Our 2nd storm of the season…and it’s not even offically Winter.
