And finally one of her better pictures. At least she let Shawn and Morgan pose for this one.
We needed to make it back to Omaha for Kristy to work the Saturday after Christmas. The roads around Baxter were fine, but the closer we got to Omaha, the interstates were closing. We ended up staying another night in Baxter. We definately did not want to take our chances getting stuck in that maess.
We had no problem driving back, the interstates were good. The problem we ran into was, our driveway. I figured it would be bad, but not this bad. I had been in contact with a co-worker who had offered to bring his snow blower over to clear our driveway. Since we were gone I was not able to at least do some damage control during the storm.
There was around 4 feet of snow throughout the whole driveway, including the mess the County road crews made at the base of the driveway. This prompted us to retire the shovel and purchase a snow blower. I don't care if it doesn't snow again, the snow blower is worth its weight in gold.
All in all, 2009 has been a good year, minus this snow. Bri is enjoying her first year of preschool. Her teachers seem to enjoy her in class, the obviously do not know the real Brianna. We have a little one on the way. Only time will tell, if he or she will be just like Bri. We cant possibly get another screaming, non-stop talking kid??
I cant forget to add, its great living in Nebraska we have a year to tout an Iowa State win in Lincoln in football and a recent UNI basketball win against Creighton here in Omaha. The more those teams lose, the better it is to be a Nebraskan!!!
