KIDS TO THE RESCUE

Our wonderful son, Marc, daughter-in-love, Deann, and grandson, Aric came all the way from Owasso and their 19" of snow (that city had the most snow for this entire area) to clear our drive and walkway for us.

 Mickey, Marc & Deann hard at work and just beginning.

Aric was assigned the job of clearing a path to our front door through the high snow drift that had piled up there.

 Aric's finished job.  Pretty good for our just turned 12 year old, with a small shovel and not use to manual labor :o)
 The finished drive-way....pavement!!!!

 An out of order picture of the 3 workers.  Where is the picture of Susan shoveling snow?????  Well......I didn't, and SOMEONE had to take the pictures!!!!!  Right?
What our center piece picture of the patio looked like Saturday.

There is a Taco Bueno just outside our addition and after clearing the drive Mickey & Marc took a test drive over there to see if we could get out of the neighborhood.......and we bought 15 taco's for the 5 of us for lunch.  They had them on sale for 75cents each with a purchase of 10 or more.  What a deal!!!  $2.25 for lunch for our workers, plus diet coke, and the banana nut bread I'd made the day before.  Pretty cheap labor for my wonderful crew!!!
YES, I am one blessed, above & beyond, lady.

Those are some great workers! You are blessed to have such a thoughtful family.

I love stories like this... whether we are the ones being helped, or the ones doing the helping. I think the ones doing the helping receive the bigger blessing :)
