Away In A Manger

Away In a manger, no crib for a bed
The little Lord Jesus laid down His sweet head.
The stars in the sky looked down where He lay
The Little Lord Jesus asleep on the hay.

The cattle are lowing the Baby awakes
But little Lord Jesus, no crying He makes
I love Thee Lord Jesus, look down from the sky
And stay by my cradle till morning is night.

Be near me, Lord Jesus, I ask Thee to stay
Close by me forever, and love me I pray,
Bless all the dear children in Thy tender care
A fit us for Heaven to live with Thee there.

My picture did not turn out like I wanted.  The camera focused on the snow and the branch but Sage is in the background.  I took some others but the white spots look odd, they are snowflakes.

When we went in to the party last night the roads were all clear.  I had worried about that but we had much more snow than they did in Deer Park.  WELL, when we came out it had been snowing for a while and there was about 3 inches of soft fluffy snow on the cars, the roads, the sidewalk and everywhere.  It was not so fun driving home.  It was the kind of snow that blows everywhere.  Bob is a cautious driver and there are those who don't think slowing down is such a good idea and when they passed us snow blew everywhere.  It is always worse to drive in it at night. 

We didn't go to church this morning because we had l8" drifts and it took a long time to do the chores and the road had not been plowed.  Miss it when we don't get there.  Haven't seen Katie today either.  I think she and the baby must have hibernated.  He gets his first shots tomorrow. 

Sage looks so pretty out in the snow.  She is so so shiny black in the winter time.  She wanted me to come out today when I was taking pictures.  I just took the pictures and came in.  The wind is blowing hard and its cold.  The computer says 32 but with the wind chill it feels much colder.  Not that 32 is warm mind you but with the wind I shivered even in my warm coat.
