So darn busy!

Okay, I understand y'all want more regular updates, but we have been so busy lately we don't know whether to scratch our watches or wind our butts. A little update is in order I'm sure, so here's the long and short of it. During this time of year, Dave runs around to a million places snapping photos of games and many other events. We've also had a lot of extra stuff to do (Dave giving the sermon at church and filling in for Granny Janny's receptionist at H&R Block on Thursdays, Amy with WW and many other events going on, getting the storefront ready for the studio, games, games and more games. Needless to say, we have much more going on in this tiny little town than we ever did in GI! That, and we have a two-year-old we're potty training!) Anyway, Tori above is on the mend after her knee surgery on Monday. When they worked on her knee, they fixed her MCL, ACL, lateral meniscus and patella. Yikes. She came over last Friday to help Jack, Peyton and the Blackman boys make a snowdude with me.
Here's Jack and me. A moment amid all the chaos.
Jack was so very excited about the snow coming. I told him the night before it hit that in order for it to snow so we could build a snowman, all the little boys in town had to be quiet when they went to bed. I didn't hear a peep out of him, which is rare. The next morning, we headed out into the white blanket of snow to build our newest friend. He's, of course, gone now but everyday when Jack would go outside, he'd say 'hi' to the snowdude. That's my jacket on the snowman and Jack's hat. I'm wearing Jack's Mickey Mouse stocking hat (don't ask me how it fit) and Amy's Grandpa's coat her grandma gave me. I had to explain to Jack that the snowman had to leave before it melted, so while he was at daycare one day, I went out and took care of him.
The Jack.
Our snowdude.
I have a kajillion other photos to upload, but about the time I try to do it, I have probs with Blogger. Go fig.

mIt is cool to see the famous snowman! Did you ever figure out who sent the snowman letter? It was nice to see you at the cafe the other night.
