Snow at the Farm....

Brrrrr...it's cold here....way to cold for me!! We awoke this morning to SNOW on the farm....it was really pretty, but thankfully it quit pretty quickly. Still, it is cold and windy and around 24 degrees tonight....yuck!!
Everyday has been spent at MCV with Kristy so it's been a busy time. Bob and Paul are busy doing "farm projects", whenever Paul is home from the House of Delegates.

Sunday morning we got up early and went down to Warsaw to our Church at Cobham Park. It was so good to see everyone and spend a little time with some good friends. We had a nice lunch with George and Charlotte and then visited with Linda and Everett before returning to Montpelier.

There was a nice surprise when we arrived back at the Farm. I had mentioned that I wanted to clear one of the seven ports in the pole barn to park the toad (my Saturn station wagon), so that I would not have to scrape ice (yuck!) early in the morning when I leave for the hospital. When we pulled in Sunday afternoon, Paul had been a busy guy; he had cleaned out a port and put up a little sign "Home of the Toad" by my pull-in parking port!!! Yippee, when I left early Monday morning for the hospital, my little toad was ice free!!! He's a good guy!!! ....and I am a happy girl!!! Thanks Paul! :)

Kristy is bravely fighting her battle each day. It is really tough on her. Her WBC went up to 1.700 last week, but has now dropped back to 700. They will do a biopsy this week to see what is happening. She is still holding her own, but remains immune deficient and very susceptible to infections until the White Blood Count comes up. I enjoy my days with her and admire her will and tenacity to just get through each day. I am reminded everyday to be grateful for good health and for the many blessings we receive each day.

Thanks again, for caring sentiments from so many!

The peeps are growing by leaps and bounds! There are photos of them, but I haven't got them up yet. Maybe this week!

Hugs to everyone!

Kristy is our thoughts every day. I know she is so grateful to have you there everyday with her. You are so right that every day we should be so blessed to have good health.

Love you guys and hope you have a great holiday. And, keep those "peep" warm and name one Alfredo for me.

Hugs to you both,
