Visitor from Portland and snow....

Fun Monday post below this one.....

Yesterday was a busy day! First we had Joshuas baseball tryouts, I'll post about that another day. That was early in the morning till 11. At 12 I had to take the girls to sell girl scout cookies at one of the local grocery stores till 1. Then at 3 by brother in law Josh and I crossed the ferry to the airport to pick up his daughter Kayla for a visit with us for a few weeks.

Here is here plane coming in. It's a little funny because I had to take the picture through glass of course.

We stayed up kind of late last night. Yesterday was a very nice day for around here so far got up to 50 degrees. I know not really really warm but hey....

We did a barbeque for dinner and watched some movies and everyone went to bed.

This is what we woke up to this morning!

It had just started snowing this morning (has been all day now). Not quite the kind of warm temps we had yesterday when I was thinking that spring was finally coming.

The kids went outside and played with the puppies for a bit. Kodiak loves to have us kick snow in the air and she tries to catch it. Look at her jump! She definetly has the Blue Heeler in her. She is so much like her momma who does the same thing. Kiska loves the snow but doesn't jump up at it like this.

Here is the kids all together playing now in the snow themselves.

This was what it looked like at first when they cooperated.

About 5 seconds later they looked like this!

Then they started working on their snowman (Thomas) they haven't finished him yet because they made the balls so big they can't figure out how to get them on top of each other.

These were all taken this morning when it had just started to snow so we have much more coming down now. It is supposed to be in the 20's tomorrow as well so we will probably be in the snow for a few days at least.

I was so happy to finally be able to drive the car up and down the hill but now I have to get Kelly to get it down for me (I'm a chicken). Looks like the 5 kids and I will be walking up and down for a couple of days.

Next week I will be heading back to the airport to pick up another kid! My friend Kara is sending her son up here for spring break. I'm going to go insane with 6 kids all day, 3 nine year olds!

I came over half an hour ago and had to go do something, so came back. As you saw, we have more snow also. Today was fairly cold in the morning, but it got sunny and is melting a little. This week is suppose to be above freezing so I am sure the snow will start to deplete again. Looks like a nice reunion and great she will be staying awhile. Six kids will be fun, for a little while anyway.

Wow- what a busy day! I love the picture of Kayla running to her dad- perfect how you were able to capture her expression!!

Six kids? Three of them 9 years old? Wow- you are very brave!! Either that or crazy ;)

Great photos.

It's cooling down here again, too, with new snow on the way.

Six kids all day sounds like a recipe for The Crazies! Good luck, honey.

Wow, you've been up to 50? I'm envious!

Lucky kids getting to go to another state! That's the nice thing about having friends and realtives in different places...chances to visit places you may not have gone otherwise. Still, 6 kids...yikes! Good luck!

Wow, a snow paradise - is what I see and of course one is envious too.

We have had the odd sprinkle of snow - on the hills and perhaps more is to follow.

Always luv seeing the photo's and I see your spring break consists of a tribe of kids - all waiting for you to entertain - enjoy....
