A Day Off

Today is parent teacher conferences at the schools so I have the day off. Plus, we had a snow day on Tuesday because it was 39 below at some places in our valley so...I had only two days of working this week. It's a rough life huh? Russell wants to know why bankers never get a snow day, sorry honey. We finally have some snow here. It has been slow coming but I suppose it is here to stay now. Our weather has been so crazy, it was in the 40s last week so lots of the snow melted and it was getting pretty thin in spots.

When the kids were here for the holidays they made a snowman which sits in the front yard and was really cute. After all the melting it looked pretty sad and kind of scary actually, here some photos of the poor guy:

Ahhhhh.....Sunny California

Here are some funny photos taken at the Disney store we visited at Downtown Disney, can you find Grace among all the Minneys?

We had a fun trip to Southern California over the weekend to visit Royce, AubRee and Grace. It was sure nice and warm. It was fun to see their house, Royce's college, and get to go to their ward with them on Sunday. We were able to do a lot of stuff in the three days we were there. We went to Newport Beach, walked around Downtown Disney, ate at some yummy spots and did a lot of visiting and enjoying spending time with them. Their little Grace is so sweet, always full of smiles and you will tell from the following photos.

Our Baby Is All Grown Up!

We are a bit melancholy today at the Barney house. Not only has all our company left that were here for the holidays, but our baby also left today for college. All I can say is that it is a good thing Brittany is going to be home with us or we would really have a quiet place. There were a few tears all around as Russell gave Colby a father's blessing just before she loaded in her car and drove to Rexburg for school. We are planning on going over tomorrow and bringing anything she left, and meet her roommates and take her out to dinner but it is still a sad day for us! I think she was excited though so that is good. Thank goodness she will only be one hour away, I guess we will survive.
