Snow Much Fun!

Safe and sound at the Altizer's house The huge snow storm turned our original 6-hour trip to North Carolina into an exhausting 20 hours on the road. What a joy and refreshment it was to finally reach our destination, the Altizers! It was 10:00 in the morning and Karen had a feast prepared for us, which energized us for an exciting snowball fight. Their boys, Joshua, Caleb, Jonathan, and David had lots of creative ideas for a snowman: upside down with two noses, a tail, and a bow tie! 🙂

We were very much grateful for their kind hospitality, even amidst all the busyness of this big transition.The Staddons and the Altizers

    Praise the Lord that you all were able to be a blessing to them. The pictures are great! I really like the upside down one, it made me think a little of how James took it.

    How creative, I would never have thought of that. One time when we had snow I did an “ATI Snowman” -complete w/ suit & tie!
