Over the river and through the woods..........

Yes, we went to Grandma's house this past weekend.......well, sort of. We went to visit my mother ...... our daughter, her husband and son, Jacob and me and my husband Steve made the trip to Iowa and it was an adventure! We crossed some rivers to get there but had there been more woods, we wouldn't have had so much trouble with the blowing snow. It was quite a weather event this weekend as we traveled in snow and then "white-out" conditions the last twenty miles and when we returned the temps were in the "deep freeze" with 30 below wind chills and 30 mph winds to blow the snow around!
I have more to share on our weekend but also much to do - and I should really get some sleep and my Christmas letter is still not done - the list is still a bit long and only a couple of days to go til Christmas!!! Here's a peek at the "sundog" that we could see on Sunday which is a real good indication of how cold it was!!!


More tomorrow although if you're as busy as I am you won't even be reading blogs til after Christmas!! I have so many I would love to catch up on but no time!!

boy does that look cold!!!BRRRRRR!
bundle up in the quilts and stay warm.

i'm working on getting some UFO's quilted this week, so you know that means more strips of batting are piling up for the January snowmen project.

I'm shivering at just the thought of such cold. I thought it was cold here with low 20s last night. But, you have me beat.

We have so much snow here so I know what you feel like. The ice built up on the roads is incredible. Below zero temps over the weekend but slightly warmer now. Brrr. Glad it worked out for you and you got home ok. Nice to go see your mom.
