I LooooVe Electricity!!




Never knew just how much you would miss something till it was gone......FOR THREE DAYS IT WAS GONE.....ice, rain, snow.....just miserable.....but then again this is Iowa we are talking about! We got just too much ice for those poor utility poles to handle and they just snapped off.....Yes I am talking the HUGE utility poles.....broke like toothpicks.....over 5000 of em......all I can say is I LOVE POWER!!! 3 days and three kids and 5 family members in one house huddled around a tv and a corn burner and one light.....and no hot water.....makes for a very very long event!! But we did survive, the power is back and we are bearing down for yet another bout of rain, ice, and snow! when will this end?? I WANT SPRING!! Including justa couple of pics I took from inside the porch....did not want my baby Rebel to get wet!!!
So creating was on the back burner for a few days but since then I have been going full speed ahead and havin a blast! I will be posting some new creatings starting tomorrow!!! I am soo excited to share!
