"I believe the nicest and sweetest days are not those on which anything very splendid or wonderful or exciting happens, but just those that bring simple little pleasures, following one another softly, like pearls slipping off a string."

Yesterday was a nice quite day. I have said it before, and I will most likely say it again. I love being able to be fed with church online when we can not make it into services. This week Andrew had an odd rush on his chest, I think it was a reaction to something, but better safe then sorry. I would hate to get someone sick if it is contagious.

The kids enjoyed holding, petting and feeding Peter Rabbit most of yesterday. We made snow flakes to hang in the windows and listened to services. Everyone but Clara and Mama had a nap. It was a wonderful relaxing end to last week. This next week is going to be *crazy*. Aaron has class this morning, class Tuesday night and then is spending all day Wednesday (7-7) in the ER in town to get all the air way and IV sets he need. Lord willing, he will get them all in one day. Then Thanksgiving. We are all looking forward to seeing family.
a better picture from later on Friday!

We have arctic air coming our way. They said on they news last night that the valley's could get 4-6 inches of snow and the mountains up to 8 inches. It starts this afternoon. I just looked out the window, and while its sunny, there are some flakes coming down now! Its also going to be COLD. Tonight's low could be as low as 7, tomorrow's is 0. Winter is so pretty!I am so thankful for warm blankets and a getting cozier all the time house!  Today I am making a door cozy. I am sure you have seen them. You put them at the bottom of the door to keep drafts out, a long tube filled with rice, beans, sand, I think anything heavy would work. I have some Warm Window scraps that Aaron tied into a tube that I am going sew a cover for, then add some dried beans to make it heavy. Since putting in the new door in the back, its just the front that is needed. Hopefully this afternoon we can get plastic up over the bedroom windows and the back entry way and hall. While its rather a pain, since we can't see out (its not clean, but still lets in light) but it sure does help a lot.
We have been enjoying Peter Rabbit a lot. Millie is not sure what it is, but has her nose working like a hound's nose should. It was rather funny, usually when she comes in of a evening she checks out under the table for anything that might be saves for her (aka things the kids dropped). Well, yesterday she sniffed all over where the bunny was, we teased her with some treats, which she didn't notice!  Lyla is very excited about it, but food is more important to our 180 lb puppy! :) 
Flora's snowflake. She needed help as she was giggling so hard she couldn't cut right! Anyone who knows Flora can just picture her doing this.
I so enjoy having animals. The girls already help feed the dogs, and now they get to help with Peter Rabbit too. It's fun to see the animals through the kids eyes. And what better way to teach them responsibility!

Clara's Snowflake!
