Grays River Valley in the snow.

Even more great photos on-line at my Picasa web album or check out the slide shows below. BTW: If you click on any slide show on my blog, you'll get a bigger version of the pictures.

BLIZZARD!

We got a lot of snow this week. Here's a few of the latest pictures. More to come of course. Looks like the snow will be around for Christmas --- back to rain after.

Almost White Christmas...

Wow, did we get some good snow the past few days. The drive in to work has been slow and snowy but not a problem in my little Honda. Last night it snowed like crazy and this morning it was about six inches total of powder. I'm at work, but Amy says there's ten inches of snow at home. Check out the latest pics -- Grandma found some old skis at a thrift store and the girls finally got to try them out today. After sledding and skiing it was time to come in for some hot cocoa!

Snow!

We got Snow this morning. Last night we walked around the lighted streets of Astoria finishing up some Christmas shopping. This morning, the snow was on the ground and swirling in the air. The girls and I ran out and played for about an hour. Photo slide show below. Click through to see bigger slide show.

Ballet Videos

Okay, these videos aren't the best, but I'm experimenting. Here's a clips Amy took when Lindsay was dancing at the Astoria School of Ballet performance at the Columbia River Maritime Museum as part of the Weathering the Storm performance. Lindsay is in the purple in the center.

Ballet and Christmas decorating

Here's a few pics from the Ballet performance at the Columbia River Maratime museum and our recent tree decorating. The girls are getting so big and so good and decorating. I have video from Lindsay's performance, which I'll try to get posted later (still learning how to do video...)
