Last night the weather got really bad, the roads were like a huge ice skating ring and then it started to dump and disaster hit Seattle. I had dropped Ben off at work that morning because I needed to take the truck in to get some work done. Around 5:00 he called and said to come get him, I jumped in the truck thinking this thing can get anywhere. Next thing I know I am sliding down this big hill by our house and into a ditch I go. Every time I tried to go anywhere I would fall farther down. I called Ben and the minute I heard his voice I started to cry. I didn’t know what to do and he had no way of getting to me. Our nice neighbor (that I had never meet) saw what had happened, so he ran over said don’t move I will get help. His wife and a few others came to my rescue and got me out. The only bad thing is I couldn’t turn the truck around so I had to reverse all the way back down to my house. Once at the house I checked the truck no damage (thank goodness). I went inside and what do I do? Call my dad he always makes things better. Ben ended up finding a ride, but the road into our neighborhood was closed so he had to walk in about two miles in a suit and dress shoes. What a trooper, by the time he got home he looked like a snowman because he was covered in snow. I am so thankful nothing serious happened and we both made it home safe. Now we are just waiting for ice to melt so we can get out of out neighborhood.
After Ben warmed up he was like a kid begging to go outside and play in the snow. He wanted to take the Ranger out and spin donuts. He was so cute out there laughing so hard. I took a video but it is really dark. He ended up helping three other people out last night they slid into the same ditch as me. Thank goodness for the ranger.

Bow is finally better! Bow officially had the last of his pins removed last Wednesday. I can’t tell you how excited we are that he is all better and we can now focus on getting his muscle back so he can one day run again. He is such a trooper, 24 weeks of pins sticking out of his let. Thanks to The Animal Emergency Clinic of Tacoma for fixing and taking such great care of Bow.

Can I just say I am so excited for Christmas! I can't wait to head back to Utah to see snow and spend some time with family and friends. Christmas time is all about being with the people you love, sharing memories and remembering what life is all about.
I am so thankful for the life I have, and what a great life it is....

Here are a couple of things we have been up to. The girls in our family had our first annual girl’s weekend. Annie, Brooklyn, Paige, Brandy and my Mom traveled up to Washington to visit me. We had such a blast, we laughed went on many adventures and even traveled to the good city of Forks. It was amazing how the town has embraced all the Twilight fans. Ben and I went hunting this last weekend and although we didn’t get a deer we still had such a great time, we really miss hunting in Utah and hope to be back soon. Ben and I are so excited Bow goes into the vet tomorrow to get his last three pins out. We could not be happier and I am sure Bow is even more excited. It has been a rough 17 weeks and we are looking forward to working his leg so he can run again.
Here are some pictures from the last few weeks.

After five wonderful days we headed back to Seattle for two days to take Bow to the vet and pack for our next trip. We flew into Utah and drove down to Lake Powell, it was such a blast. The weather was perfect the water was perfect and the company was great. Ben’s mom, sister and her family along with a couple of friends all came down. We did a lot of fishing, swimming, and wake boarding and just about anything else you would do at Lake Powell. What a great time I can’t wait for next year.
