It had snowed about a foot over night and was still snowing. We went about 40 mph all the way to Eagle River (the speed limit is 65 for those who don't live here and most ppl go about 75-80) and picked up the truck.

off the roads...this part of the highway took the longest to get through
Needless to say we were happy to make it home safe! Steve cleared out some snow in our driveway with the help of the plow company, and then we headed over to my parents for a birthday celebration for our little Beka, who turned 20 today.

I wanted to give here the best present ever, a little newborn to snuggle, but I guess he had other plans :( Poor Beka, she won't get to see him (other than on Skype) for two months. Now I'm especially glad we are heading down to Seattle in March for a nice getaway! Anyway, despite the stressful driving, it was another nice day spent with Steve and family and I'm sad it's nearly over...
Oh and PS: Aunt Connie surprise me with ANOTHER amazingly handsome and soft sweater for my stubborn little man. Its beautiful and so special because she created the pattern herself! He is such a spoiled baby already, now he just needs to come out to enjoy all his goodies :)
|hard to see the rich color in this picture, I need to get a better one soon. |
It's so beautiful!
