Snow Days

Well today is the first ice storm of the year. Last night Karl got the call from his work that he would not have PT but would have to be in at 9. Also the kids got the call that there would be no school. I still had to go to work. So my morning started at 5. I woke up and got ready for work. I gave Karl a kiss good bye and left for work. At 5:30 am Karl got the call from his squad leader that only essential personnell would be going into work. So since he is off the law enforcement mission for awhile that means he got a snow day from work. So you know what that means, SLEEPING IN. Well at 11:00 a.m. the commissary closed down and I came home. So it has been snowing off and on all day. So the kids and the dogs have been outside in the snow. The kids have been sledding with their friends and freezing. The whole post was shut down today. The General sent all the civilians home. Karl has taken on a big project on his off time. He has been working on the sequel to Marshmallow Mafia. He has been hard at work. He plans on starting the filming this weekend, if the weather holds out. He is hoping for good weather this weekend. So pray for warmer weather for us.

Well for the past couple days it has been really cold. The wind chill has been below zero and standing outside or doing PT in the elements you feel like your face is going to fall off. Life here keeps going on. My job is still as sucky as it ever has been. It seems that every time I turn around I am getting chewed out for something. Andrea seems to really enjoy her job just hates all the drama that come along with it. Everyday is a different day. Sometimes I want to just get out and then other days I want to stay in until the economy improves. I am greatful for the things that the Lord has blessed me with. I am greatful for a beautiful lady and three wonderful kids that keep me young. I hope to hear from everyone soon.

Visit From The parents

Well Prior to Christmas last year The Erickson Family from California made the long journey out to Fort Leonard wood to visit the Ericksons in the army. While here we visited Lamberts restaurant, went to see "Bolt", and made a movie called "Marshmallow Mafia" all in 4 days. I was exhausted after that weekend. But you know we had a blast with the family. It was fun to see the family and catch up on old times. Well it is getting cold here. The windchill here is below zero and on top of that it snowed yesterday. No white christmas but it is getting redonkulously cold out here.

Hello World

Well we thought that we would join the millions of people and also our family and start a blog of our own. Although we can't be high tech like Mike and Tina and host this blog on our own server at home we thought our family would like to hear about our adventures and see our family instead of dreaming about a visit. We don't have the money or the time to take off and spend a month with our family in California. So we will just have to settle for keeping in touch through the internet and this blog.
