Christmas Blessing

Little Connor is home and doing well. What a wonderful Christmas blessing to have him born safe and sound. I have to say I was worried with all of the concerns for mom and baby but he is truly beautiful. Sara is a wonderful warm and caring mom, Tyler is a great daddy, he is protective of his new little boy. Our family is all so thankful to have Connor and Sara doing so well. I can't wait to get him in my arms and cuddle him. We may have to brave more stormy weather and even rain on top of all this snow.

Sara called Wednesday Dec. 17th and said she was on her way to the hospital. There was a blizzard brewing and eventually brought almost 3 feet of snow! Bruce and I put new snow tires on the car and headed out. We were plowing snow by the time we got to the hospital in Spokane. Even making it up the hill was a challenge, the roads were filling with snow and we could hardly even see!! It continued to snow until parked cars were totally covered!!
Little Connor was born Thursday evening and he is the cutest little guy ever. It was so wonderful to be there with Sara. Connor has a ton of hair and he is so so sweet. They all stayed in the hospital until Christmas. We came home Saturday and now we are watching the weather to see when we can go back to see him.

Winter Fun

Bruce and Josh got busy putting up the Christmas lights before the snow storm. They did a great job. We enjoyed a lucious prime rib dinner Christmas eve with snow falling outside. Christmas was fun with just Josh and Meg here with us. We had a blast 'jammin' with Guitar Hero World Tour and playing games with some friends. We also got the WII Fit so look forward to our body make-overs!

Only in the West

So, today I was wrapping a present at my dining room table and I looked up, out my front window when I saw three HUGE Bison running down the road in front of my house. Yes, I said Bison, like buffalo.
So, I pretty much panicked. Several of our neighbors have horses, one has goats and the neighbor two houses down raises buffalo. He trains cutting horses and uses them when they are young and then they keep them for the meat. So the last ones they got are well fed and very "healthy". So I see these three bad boys running past my house and I ran all over my house looking for my neighbor's phone number. Before I could find it I saw him running down the road along with another neighbor and a dog. I went out to see if I could help, although a little reluctant to try to herd buffalo. So I call from the middle of the road "can I help?" she yells "Clear the road" so I turn and run for my house, just as the dog turns the buffalo around and YIPES they are running full bore straight down the road in my direction. I was not a great help watching from behind my screen door as they ran back in to their yard. I guess someone borrowed a tractor and left the gate open so the buffs went on a field trip... past my house. I didn't get a picture of the incident, so I walked down to their pature to take a picture.

Ladies night out!

Heather, Meg and I met up and went to Twilight. We all loved it, althought the whole running thing with Bella on Edward's back was a little cheesy!! We all went to Spokane for a baby shower for Sara. Britta flew in and we stayed two nights just having a great time catching up. Sara is on bedrest now and I am trying to go to Spokane as much as I can. Her Drs are monitoring her BP and hoping all will go well.
She couldn't travel to Utah for Thanksgiving, Heather didn't make it either. The rest of us had turkey with Britta and Baby Jane was blessed on Sunday.
