Here is my afternoon in a nutshell:
- Spend 3 and a half hours in the car trying to get home. Mostly due to some major traffic and a top speed of 5 mph. Lovely. And a side note, I really really needed a bathroom break.
- Finally out of traffic and my 4Runner ran straight into a ditch. I suppressed my FREAK-OUT emotions and pulled myself together and got out of the ditch.
- Had an internal celebration for my bravery.
- Got a little too excited and quickly humbled again. Couldn't make it up the hill to get home, now I'm in another ditch.
- Brad couldn't come rescue me because him and the neighbor couldn't get their 4x4 up our street. Sweet Brad packed a rescue kit and was going to walk the mile to come save me.
- Wonderful people stopped to help me and gave me a ride home. At this point I didn't really care who they were, as long as they would take me to a restroom.
- I finally made it HOME! Brad and I sat down to relax and eat dinner....and the electricity goes off!
- We finally have heat and light, and now I'm about to curl up on the couch and watch the best Christmas movie of all time, Home Alone :)
Check out the pics so far. It is supposed to snow heavily all night, which means an early wake up call from Brad and Dallas for some play time in the snow.

So...I was more than happy when Brad and Dallas were dragging me out of bed early Saturday to bundle up and play outside. A happy Brad = happy Alicia :)
Dallas and Kelso. Kelso lives next door and yes, she is wearing an adorable coat.

I give thanks everyday for our loving family and our faithful Jesus, and here are a couple recent additions:
Lots of quality time with my boys
p.s. We're still out in the country, but in a small neighborhood where Dallas and I can get back to our walking / occasional running routine like we had in TX. The nice view of the mountains is a new little perk I'm enjoying.
And I'm thankful for the most wonderful time of the year!
p.p.s. I'll go ahead and admit that I've been listening to Christmas music for a month, and I cry like a baby every time I hear "I'll be home for Christmas".
