Powder and Air Mix

Over the last week, over 10ft of new snow dumped on the mountains and the base is now over 14ft. Here is a sample of what Rob and I flew through at Solitude. --Nick

Great Day

Everyone has a way to define a great day. I'll desribe one great day for me. It happened yesterday! After searching earnestly all over the house for Garrett's webkinz kitty the previous day, we discovered his kitty in the library lost and found. Hurray!! Anna's scooter was returned!! It had been borrowed without permission and not returned and not easily found. I think the borrower forgot where it was left, then stumbled upon it yesterday at another neighbor's house.

Ok, so that may seem a little materialistis, but that is only one kind of great day. I love it when things are found that were lost. This weekend we have a wonderful opportunity to hear the words of God from excellent leaders. We will be instructed and might even realize we have found something that we have lost, or find new inspiration that will help us in our lives. The 179th General Conference will begin on Saturday, April 4 at 10:00 am MDT. You can listen on-line (www.lds.org), or it will be broadcast on BYU TV. Here is a great activity packet for kids as they listen: http://www.scribd.com/doc/13298891/2009-April-Conference-Packet (I did not make this, just sharing it).

Bad Day

So last Sunday was not such a great day as far as material possessions go. We had this amazing storm come in and really rattle our house. Texas friends this even makes a mock of your windy days. I mean shingles were just being blown off of our roof. Our garbage was blown over and being blown around. One fence panel blew down. Then to top it off, our camera accidentally got on the ground in our garage--no one realized it. We ran over it on the way to church, so bye bye camera.
