Merry Christmas Eve!

Daughter #1 made it as far as half way to Oklahoma city on a flight from Houston before being turned back when the Oklahoma City airport closed. 

Daughter #2 made it to about 12 miles from the house before the blizzard forced her to seek shelter in a motel.  TWELVE MILES FROM HERE! 

Son drove from NYC, leaving at 1:00, yesterday.  He was forced to a motel due to the blizzard an hour away. 

Thank god they are safe and sound.  Tomorrow will be better.  I have been a nervous wreck, today.

SOMEONE appreciated the snow:

Happy Quilting,

Penny, Evelyn and Pearl

Gotta love those northern-spitz-type dogs and their winter frolicking! :) My Pom, Foxy, loved the snow, too. I'm glad your children are all safe and sound.

Penny said...

Thank you, Linda. They all sent pictures wearing big smiles, which brought smiles to me, too.

Merry Christmas Penny!

I'm glad to hear your children are all safe. I hope they all arrive at you new home safely in time for you all to celebrate Christmas together.

Love the video of the girls!

although your kids are safe, I know you won't be happy until they are with you, and Pearl will just about turn herself inside-out with excitement when they all arrive! Does Evelyn get to feel left-out do you think?

have a wonderful christmas. puppy hugs, xx

Merry Christmas Penny! I hope the kids can make it safely to your place today.

Sherry said...

Me too. Glad that they are safe.

On our way to bed last night DH said that we wouldn't be getting any snow. I ssh'd him. Too late...not even a dusting.

We are too far south to have snowstorms...so a dusting is enjoyed every 5-10 years.

Hope they've made it in okay and that you can all be together. But, at least they're all safe.

You can have Christmas tomorrow--we are!
