Happy Valentine's Day

As of yesterday, Phoebe is 3 months old. Incredible! It sounds so cliche to say this, but time is flying by. She's not my teeny little baby anymore. My little turkey weighs 14 pounds! She's a Butterball. Plus she's outgrown certain brands of her clothes in the 3 month size so she's now wearing 3-6 month sizes.


We spent the last week at Grandma's house. Stupid blizzard. It knocked out our power last Friday night. We had about 2 1/2 feet of snow! Without power we had no heat, even though the furnace is gas, it needs the electric thermostat to work. We managed to make it out Saturday morning to go to my mother-in-law's. She had more snow than we did, but a wood stove. So even if she lost power she'd be warm. It took us almost 6 hours to make a trip that normally takes 2 1/2 hours. There were many spots on the interstates that hadn't been plowed or if they had, it had been several hours since they'd been touched. It was a nerve wracking trip. We made it in one piece though.

Here's poor Ginger dog heading out to potty. This is the walkway to Grandma's front door.

Grandma was soooooo happy to get to spend time with her little princess. It took Phoebes a little while to warm up to her. She's developed the "stranger danger" reaction. Eventually they were good buddies. :)

Mike bought a kerosene heater and went back home on Sunday. We didn't want the cats to freeze, Kitty needed his shots anyway. He said it was 37 degrees in the house when he got home. He had to work this week, whether we had power or not because the school had power. Stupid. Our power came back on Tuesday. Thank goodness.

Mike came to get us and return his mom's truck yesterday. He borrowed it since it has 4 wheel drive. We had to drive through another snow storm on the way home. I swear it isn't ever going to stop! At least we're all home together now. I missed him so much! I'm pretty sure he missed Phoebe more than he missed me.

Happy Valentine's Day everyone!
