Santa brought Erin a hamster cage for Christmas.  Sunday, we went to get a hamster.  Erin found Steve.  
He is a long haired hamster..  a tan/cream color.   And he's very sweet.  

Welcome to the family Steve.  


We're on winter break.  We managed to go to the library and bookstore yesterday to get some reading material for her.  Her nose has been in a book for the last week so I can't complain.  Today is laundry day and rest time before Family Game night.   So what does she do. Read.

I love my girl.

Her first game- the 2 of us

I took Erin the Sabre's game last night. And she loved it. I splurged and got her a hat and necklace, oh, and a foam finger. And lots of munchies. It was such a good game too. Lots of scoring and fights.

I am very lucky to be able to take her. Our seats were in the 100 level and not cheap.

So today, we are recovering. Neither of us have voices.

GO SABRES!!!!!!!!!!


But before the game we did go downtown to Prima

and then road the train to get to the Arena. I refuse to pay more than $5 for parking.

The Electric tower is all lit for the Holiday.. So pretty.
Lights Downtown

too heavy

I took this at 4pm. The snow was so heavy that the hedges started to bend with the weight of the snow. There is a tree in our back yard that is doing the same thing.

I'm so glad I didn't put lights on the hedges. We did that 9 years ago and we have the same type of snow fall. Totally ruined the lights.

After shoveling for some 3 hours, this is how my arms feel. I can't lift them.

And we're not done. The approach to the drive way has to be done.

I'm going to try and sleep now... maybe, if I can move.

So we've had snow since yesterday. I'm thinking we've got at least 3 feet. In a 24 hour span, that is a lot.

I've taken some great shots.. if you like snow. Needless to say, we haven't seen or heard a plow yet.

I do think I need new gloves... ones that don't absorb liquid....
