Snow Days and Blessings Great and Small



So, it snowed another foot today. The snow plows actually plowed as well, and the end of my driveway was plowed in by a few feet of snow. To the rescue came Enos and Cody, from the ward. Not only did they snowblow my driveway, and several others in the neighborhood, but they dug out the end of the driveway, the sidewalk, and were moving on to other houses on the street. And they wouldn't even let me make them some Hot Chocolate. I want to cry thinking about the enormous blessing this was to my family today. You see....


Talia started throwing up last night. I had given her table food at dinner (which I always do now), and there was a couple of things she hadn't eaten before. I was hoping it was that, but she threw up all last night until about 10pm. Then, she settled into a restless sleep...and so did I. I was really worried about her....she woke early this morning, starving, and hasn't thrown up since..so I really hope it was a 12 hr bug, or she just didn't tolerate dinner. She's the only one of my kids who's ever had bouts of actual projectile vomiting as a baby, where as I hold her over a towel I can feel her poor little stomach just contract. It's the saddest thing to watch her cry because she doesn't understand why dinner is coming up and out her nose and mouth, painfully. Blessings again, because she's back to her normal, happy self today.




The boys could hardly wait to get outside after lunch and play in the snow. They got some snowball makers/throwers for Christmas, along with a snow-brick maker. They've got snowballs down, but can't figure out the brick maker. I'll have to ask the neighbors how to make sure the bricks don't break.
