Snow! (and: Kamakazi Ducks)

I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas! We're finally back from all our many Christmas trips - each and every one was wonderful. Fun family and friends, good food, and lots of presents! (Don't play games with Ricky and Garita - inside joke)

Wednesday morning we woke up to a beautiful world of swirling white snow. After the ice storm of a few weeks ago, some good old fashioned snow was wonderful. Unfortunately, it melted within a few hours, but it was pretty while it lasted.

So... the other day I was innocently following Tony through the house - ok, ok, I was stalking him with evil intent - when all of a sudden I hear "KAMAKAZI DUCK" and this little rubber duckie comes flying around the corner and bonks me in the stomach. Poor duckie... Ever since then, two little rubber duckies keep appearing all through the house in random places. Oh the joys of two little kids in adult bodies being married to each other. :)

Well, we're iced in. A big storm came through late Saturday and has been going off and on since then. Fortunately, the roads aren't too bad, but all the schools and most businesses are closed due to power outages. Everyone has been fine, but seemingly everyone in the city (and most of Oklahoma, including up Mommy's way) is out of power except us. We have been very blessed in that we have yet to lose electricity. Tony's sister Kayla is staying the night at Mom and Dad's... The entire Catlett clan has been at Mommy's house since yesterday morning and will probably stay there until the power comes back since she has a gas stove.

We went to Texas this last weekend from Friday night to Sunday for Christmas with Mom's family. That was interesting... seemed like something traumatic happened at least once a day while we were there :) Oh well, we survived, and for the most part the kids enjoyed themselves.

No Work!
Lucky us - I love working for public schools. School was canceled today, and they've already canceled for tomorrow too!

Well, I think that's all the news for now! Ta-Ta
