Our Blessed Chaos

My hubby + a 1st grader + twins in kindergarten + 4 critters..... Yeah it is chaos, but we are blessed!

Today's Verse

I started out the month of April in North Carolina and was thrilled with a beautiful spring.  I took pictures like these in our yard and our neighbor's yard a day or two after the first day of spring...

Our house is in the background and is the view from my bedroom!






It was even warm enough to dig out some shorts!


but then I came to Saskatchewan and apparently travelled back in time to the middle of winter.  We woke up this morning to this...

We knew it was snowing but we didn't know how much because we couldn't even see through most of the windows!


All the snow was gone when we got here about a week ago.  This is all fresh snow!!


I am thinking it will be at least a couple days before I can drive my van!

This is at least a 4 foot drift!



maybe I should have packed more than raincoats and rubber boots?

and I had to exchange my flipflops for Papa's snowboots!
We were all dressed up and ready to go out into the snow storm...




We were not out very long, it took us longer to get dressed than we were outside. 
They were not impressed with being out in a snow storm!
 Oh and yes, I did check the calendar and it is in fact April 30.  So nope, not time travel just a reminder that anything can happen with the weather in Saskatchewan!  And yep I am really missing North Carolina right about now...

Carrie,
Wonderful pictures. And, really, what trip to Saskatchewan would be complete without a blizzard? Sorry the weather didn't cooperate on your visit.
Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment at Then Life Happens... It is appreciated.
Still missing you from a now WARM Saskatchewan ;)

I forgot to mention... regarding your Dad, my thoughts and prayers with you and yours.
