Blizzard in Michigan brings PoSsiBiLitY of 3 Inches Snowfall...

Christmas is fast approaching.  We are so very blessed this year to have Mom healthy and here under our roof.  The new bedroom is coming along nicely...I have most of the ceiling boards stained and clear coated.  Mr. Wonderful is working on insulating the ceiling and installing the plugs and sockets.  Many areas of the state are closing schools as they expect at least 6 inches of snowfall or better with the predicted Michigan "blizzard" predicted. We are thankful that God has paved the way for our being able to get the addition enclosed and covered before any real rough weather draws near.  Our area will only be receiving about 3 inches of snow, and temps around 35.  It is nice to fire up the wood stove in the basement with the wood that God provided - it showed up unexpectedly about 2 days after I lost my job!  We probably have enough to last the winter, which is wonderful.  Jesus is truly Our Savior, from the BEGINNING, and still to this very day.
Everyone is cozy and warm - including "Peaches" - note her cozy and color-coordinated flannel cage cover!  She has gotten friendlier, and is finally eating a few bread crusts, greens scraps, and a bite or two of grapes.  She loves her "out of cage" time, riding around on my shoulder and seeing what is what!  When she wants to be scratched, she has me trained which area to scratch by rotating and turning 'the other cheek', chest, or back to my finger.  What a smart bird - or maybe I am a smart HUMAN!!! 
Wishing you and yours a Happy Holiday, a Blessed Christmas, and remember, as we do, that Jesus is the Reason for the Season...

HEY! I recognize that card! You should have seen my eyes bug out and do a double take!
Love your reminder of the true meaning of and why we celebrate Christmas.
Dixie was a happy girl this a.m. when she saw the snow. Addie, I wrapped up in an afghan.
Jim should be home tonight and has next week off. It'll be a nice way to end the year for him as it's been a bumpy one. Wishing you and yours all the best in 2013. You all deserve it! Hugs from one corgi mama to another!

I heard you were going to get a lot of snow. Good thing Bob has room enclosed. Jesus is the WHOLE reason for the season.
Merry Christmas.

Peaches is too cute! Jazz does me the same way with the scratching of her back and all! It's funny how she moves around and I just keep my hand where it is. lol I'm so glad you have the new addition almost finished. We got a dusting of snow this morning and it's 29 degrees with blistery winds! I didn't like being out in it all. It is wonderful how the Lord provides for us!

Merry Christmas!

Your Mom is going to love her new addition. It's so nice for both of you to share this time together. I hope you didn't get too much snow - just enough to make it Christmasy.
Have a wonderful holiday.
