Zeb HATES pink feather boas. Thank heavens.
Kent finished school today at noon and we've been celebrating ever since! We went and tried to get some Christmas shopping done- but really didn't accomplish much! We did spend a few hours at hobby lobby trying to get our pixie pal gift supplies. Making homemade gifts is a much harder task than it sounds. Hobby Lobby is where we found the pink feather boa.
Just getting out to Christmas shop was a bit of a feat this afternoon. Most of Toledo was shut down this morning due to an ice storm last night (no seminary AGAIN!) and our car was a large pod of ice. The picture to the left is solid ICE! Kent had to break it off in large sheets. Zeb and I sat inside while Kent chipped away at it. Last year the big ice storm broke off our door handle. This year we didn't sustain any damage (although the door handle still isn't fixed).
And here's our poor little tree in the front yard. Usually he isn't nearly as droopy. His branches do not touch the ground and he stands much taller.
