Ode to Eddie
As some of you may have heard, our little dwarf hamster Eddie died on the 13th. We had been married about a year and a half and I was dying for a pet so Eddie became our first "baby." I had just had surgery and for some reason felt inclined to name Eddie after my surgeon (don't ask me why, it's a cute name). I remember picking him out and spoiling him with a fun cage and toys. It made me smile everytime he would run up to the cage door to take a peanut from us. We sure love him and although he was with us for a brief time (average hamster life) we enjoyed him and will miss him very much!Sorry for the blurry awful close-up picture but I couldn't resist
Our first family picture
Norris always kept a good eye on his brother
On a brighter note, we had some friends over tonight for a Christmas party. Most everyone in the ward is staying home for the holiday so it's nice to have each other to celebrate with. I'm sure grateful for such awesome friends!
Oh and one more thing. We had a crazy storm yesterday and as you can see from the picture, it dropped more than 6 inches in less than 8 hours! I get really anxious driving in the snow but we had to finish our shopping but good old Elias kept us safe. Poor Ryan though, he ended up digging an old crazy guy's car out on the freeway, helped our neighbor get a new battery, dug out our neighbor's neighbor, and dug my car out of our driveway twice! Love ya hun :)
