Merry Christmas

It is 9am. I am the ONLY one awake...can you believe it? So, I thought while I wait for anyone to get up, I'll blog a little, with a sleeping baby Sarah in my arms. She is getting heavy.
We got home last night at about midnight, after making the rounds, to the sound of cracking and popping. I looked across the street, as we opened the door to our home, to see our neighbors garage roof collapse. Nice Christmas gift, huh? Matt went over to make sure that nobody was in there, but we are waiting for the rest of it to cave in. We helped them move a car from under the carport, located right next to the garage. The neighbor had just gone out about 30 minutes earlier to throw garbage away. They are in their late 70's maybe 80's. We are so glad they are okay. We have heard more cracking and popping throughout the night.
Matt spent the next hour knocking the snow and icicles off of our house. We got to bed pretty, late...well, early. I had to wait for Brinley to FINALLY fall asleep so that I could play Santa. That could be the reason most of the house is still asleep.
Hope you all have a SAFE and happy Christmas!

I'm glad that no one was hurt. Is the roof to their house going to hold up?

Dave just finished shoveling the snow off our patio roof. Now I think we'll do the rest tomorrow. You never know with these old houses.

Hope you had a great Christmas.
