Snowed In

We've been up at the cabin since late Friday afternoon. I packed in a rush so we could get up here before it got dark so I forgot several things and probably didn't pack enough food (that's a first).
It snowed all day Saturday and was very windy too. Luckily there was a break in the weather and Paul made it up here with us. Yeah!
We woke up this morning and were totally snowed in - sorry no pictures because I forgot my camera too. We probably got 3 feet of snow overnight! The plow had already come by and made a wall in front of the cars so there was no way we were getting out in time to go to the branch up here. So we had our own meeting here at the cabin. We all got our church clothes on and first watched Music and the Spoken Word. It just happened that the bell choir was on today and my good friend Paige is part of that so it was fun to watch her. It was a nice Thanksgiving theme that set the tone for our meeting. It was so great to have sons that hold the priesthood so they could prepare, bless and pass the sacrament to us. Paul conducted the meeting and accompanied the hymns we sang on his guitar. He also gave a talk on the sacrament. Then we shared a message from Pres Monson on being grateful and we all went around and talked about what we are grateful for. It was definitely some of the best church I've ever been to.
The rest of the day was very nice - we played games together and some good down time.
Now the big question is when and how are we going to get home - its supposed to keep snowing for the next couple of days. We'll enjoy it while we can here and be thankful for such a great get away place.

Wow. I'm impressed that you guys held your own sacrament meeting. I think we would have just stayed in our pajamas and said, Oh well. And I think it's funny that you are snowed in, yet you've got internet up there. Enjoy the week! Today's supposed to be a killer storm.
