One of the main things keeping me from time online this week was preparing for Dacey's fifth birthday party.
As it turns out, we have to postpone because of this little situation:
Yep. We are in the midst of a full-on, good ol' fashioned Oklahoma ice storm.
We're celebrating Dacey's big day quietly today - she's still in her jammies and greatly enjoying the trampoline her daddy "built" for her. Of course, I've spent most of my day thinking about her first birthday. Blinking back tears as I imagine what the next five years will bring.
We fully expect to lose power in the next few days as the power lines finally surrender to the ice and snow accumulations, so I'm thinking my time away from here may last a few days longer than expected!
In the meantime, we are sipping hot cocoa and popping popcorn and I'm reminding myself that even in the midst of an ice storm - Blessed be He.
