More snow...

Well, we are getting dumped on again today. We had a reprive yesterday, but the snow has commenced, and we could have anywhere from 10-20 cm. These pictures were taken tonight, and you can see where I walked out in the snow on Monday...those prints are nearly covered. Molly and I have only ventured out just long enough to take her picture on Monday...however those didn't turn out too well. The weather is suppose to warm up tomorrow, and the snow turn to what a mess that will make! :/

Winter Wonderland...

Well it is currently about 18F/-8C here in Richmond, BC. It is pretty darn cold for here, and especially this time of year. It isn't going to get much warmer than that today. It isn't even December yet! It is suppose to be cold like this most of the week, and it is snowing just a little, even though we aren't suppose to get anymore until tomorrow. It will take a few days for this to thaw. We were already waterlogged from the heaviest rainfall on record for the month of November. What an odd month this has been, deaths in the family, weather freakishiness...what else is due to happen before December arrives in a couple of days?
Well, it is too cold to take Molly out, and I don't want to be out in the snow. So, I guess we will be stuck home for a while. Trouble is we have things to get before we make the trip up for Greg's mum's memorial on Saturday. Ho-hum! I guess it will all come together.

I like this song...

X-Box 360 has a new commercial out for the game Gears of War. The commercial features a song named Mad World sung by Gary Jules. It turns out that it was originally done by Tears for Fears back in the 80's. Ok, how come I have never heard of this song? I am a total 80's music junkie, and I didn't even know this song! It was also on the Donnie Darko soundtrack (very strange movie). Funny thing is when I first saw the commercial, I thought it was R.E.M.

We still have some snow off and on...

but here is what it looked liked this morning. :)

It is still SNOWING!!!!

I have been wanting it to stop all day, so we could take Molly out, and build a snowman. Her bunting isn't waterproof, so going out wasn't an option. We have about a foot or more now. Lots of snow for this time of year, especially in the Vancouver area.

Let it snow...

Well, we are having our first snow here in Richmond. It has been snowing in the mountains for a while now. It isn't sticking too bad so far. I went to the store to pick up some stuff, so if we go "snowed" in we would be ok. The bread , and milk weren't flying off the shelves like it would be in Alabama. :)

The people here can't drive, and add a weather variant, and they really can't drive. :(

The snow has been falling a couple of hours now, and we have about 4 inches on the is still falling. The forecast says 2-4 inches between now, and tomorrow night. I think we are going to get way more. Good thing I went to the store. :)

Being Thankful

Today is Thanksgiving in the U.S. I miss having Thanksgiving with my family. My extended family is spread far and wide, and there are so few of us it seems. I am Thankful for my husband, and my beautiful little girl. I am thankful for what remaining family I do have. I am thankful for my friends, and extended family.
Embrace your loved ones, for they are what you have, without them you have nothing. Embrace the ones you love, for you never know how long you have with them. Life is very short, so don't waste one minute.

Farewell to a wonderful lady

Greg's mum fell critically ill two weeks ago, and passed away yesterday. This came as a complete shock to the family, and only days since my papa passed away. Too much sadness for us to take.
We love you Mum, and are very sad you had to go. Please watch over us.

Happy Anniversary to Us!

Greg, and I have been happily married 4 years as of yesterday. We didn't make any special plans this time. We both are sick with colds, along with Molly. We have had illness and death in the family. There is just too much going on. So we have postponed doing anything special for now. I pulled out our wedding photos last seems so long ago, and yet it was only a short time ago. We now have a beautiful little girl to show for it. :)
