We got a ton of snow this past week, and it's still coming!! Last night, we had more wind than snow. The wind carried all of the snow to certain places where it stacked up to several feet high!

Here is Whiskey in the snow next to our can tell he is about 2 feet off the ground here

Here they are in the backyard...we had a couple of steps there and you can see the BBQ next to where Matt is standing.

Here is the door from the garage out to the backyard-there are steps down from this door as well-so deep!

Here is the fam on top of what must be at least 3 feet deep-I had just sunk down deeper when the picture was taken

And here is when I was actually standing on top of the mountain of snow

Whiskey found a Fruit by the Foot wrapper to keep him busy

Here's Matt and W on top of that mountain in the front yard

The front porch-our porch is off the ground about 2 feet and you can see the snow blew up onto the porch by the front door

The back side of the mountain of snow


A video clip of Whiskey running from Matt to me-he LOVES the snow!

I left my house at the usual time today: 6 am to get to work by 6:30 so I can have my coffee. By 6:20, I am at Eastgate in Bellevue-making good time even with the snow!! All of a sudden, I was at a stand-still. It then took me 3 hours to get to the hospital for work. I don't think it's even 5 miles!! Needless to say, I was late. I-405 royally sucked today.

My baby Whiskey was neutered today. He also had a small umbilical hernia that needed to be fixed. I felt so bad for the little guy! He has a cone around his head and cries when he really wants to bite at his incision. I guess the good news is that he is mostly calm and quiet tonight, sleeping next to his sheep.

Whiskey and Matt

Matt and I wake up the other night to Whiskey rolling around in his kennel being SO noisy. Matt jumps up out of bed and turns the light on to see if he was ok. He was fine, just moving a lot. I rolled over and went back to bed. A few seconds later, I feel Matt tapping me on the shoulder. He says,

"honey, when did I put on your shirt???"

me: " have MY shirt on???"

matt: "ha, yes...but WHY?"

me: "I don't have a clue. Go back to bed...and take off my shirt."

I am not kidding you either. There he is in boxer briefs and my long sleeve V-NECK purple shirt! All I could think of was "fat guy in a little coat..."

We have been laughing for days!

The other day while Matt and I were getting ready for work, Whiskey took a pair of my underwear and ran away with them. He does this with everything: clean laundry, dirty laundry, the recycling, etc... We usually chase him around until we corner him then get it back. This time, while running away from Matt, Whiskey SWALLOWED MY UNDERWEAR WHOLE!!! And no, this was not a little thong, it was normal underwear. Luckily, W passed it yesterday!! Matt and I have never been so thrilled to see poop.
