We'll be in Prague with our children and 4 grandchildren for the New Year's Eve festivities. We finally get to fly out later today, Dec. 28--only two days late. The blizzard left over 2 feet of snow at the airport, while we just got the fringe of the storm with 3 1/2 inches here. The wind, however, sounded like a freight train for two days; but it's sunny and calm this morning--much better traveling weather.

The Lord, in His Providence and Mercy, had us at home when a 50-mile/hr. gust of wind blew the back door open in the middle of the night. When Rick went downstairs later, the temp. in the Family Room was 30 degrees--what a disaster that could have been! He has since screwed a board across the door to keep it shut while we're away. Not exactly glamorous, but it will do until we can get a new door.

What are your stamping goals for 2011? I'm determined to use up as much of my stash as I can without buying more--until the Stamp Show in April, that is!

OMG...that is scary to have your door come open like that during such crummy weather! I am so glad you were there and your hubby could secure it for the time you're gone! Also so glad that you will be able to make your flight today!

My friend's daughter made a surprise trip home on Christmas Eve (from Connecticut) to visit. She was supposed to have left from KC on Sun, but that was cancelled. She actually did leave early yesterday Morning....her landing was at Hartford Airport. She made it safely...had to come through Atlanta. I just saw on the news this morning about all of the stranded passengers at LaGuardia Airport (now jokingly called Hotel LaGuardia!). I feel so sorry for them.

Have a safe and fun trip!!! And have a splendid New Year celebration!!!! Dana
