Snow, Snow, Snow

You REALLY must be careful what you wish for! My boys wished and wished for a White Christmas. Oh man! What White Christmas we are having!!

Our valley is called the Banana Belt of Montana. Our weather is usually more like western Washington, pretty balmy, a little rainy, and sunny. NOT this winter! We have more snow now than I can ever remember having, and it keeps coming down. It's beautiful. But I have to say I hope it melts quickly! Except then we have a muddy mess... see! It's hard to know WHAT to wish for =)

Over this Christmas break I watched the BEST movie EVER! It is now my favorite movie, Mama Mia! I didn't think I would like this movie much, because I haven't ever been a big fan of musicals, but please! How could someone NOT like this movie! It's set in Greece, with the big bright blue Mediterranean Ocean in the back ground and the cast is WONDERFUL!

The MUSIC!! I LOVE it! My wonderful Hubby rented it when our youngest had the flu last week. I watched it three times before he took it back. Then on Christmas morning I woke up and there it was in my stocking! My Hubby ROCKS!! (He likes it too. He's even memorized the songs! I catch him singing them all over the house. LOL)

Otherwise our Christmas break hasn't been great. Once again, for the second year in a row, we were all sick, well except for Hubby. So far he's escaped it... The youngest, Logan, came home with the flu. He was sick for 24 hours.

Then 4 days later it hit me like a ton of bricks. And when I get sick, I get REALLY sick. I felt like I was going to die. Hubby told me afterwards that he was scared I might die too! Great huh!? I must have looked HORRIBLE....

Then 4 days later Ben came down with it. Sigh... He threw up on the little leather couch, and I think it's ruined. It didn't handle stomach acid very well. I guess leather and acid don't mix...

If you have an idea of how I could save it, that would be very welcome! The set is quite old, we got both of the couches from my Mom and she got them from her Mom. So it may just be time for it to be retired!

Sounds like a good excuse to go furniture shopping! That stinks that you've all been sick. This is the first Christmas that one of us hasn't been sick. Not sure how we escaped it! The snow is beautiful. Here in Iowa we get snow on a regular basis so I'm used to it. But it doesn't mean I like it! I hate the muddy mess because of the dog. And I really hate driving in it! But it is pretty to look at. :-)

I wished for snow for Christmas, but it was pretty warm here, which is not really that typical. Oh well, it was a nice Christmas!

This is my first time to your blog, please feel free to stop by and say hello at my blog as well.

I hope that you have a Happy New Year! :)
