Yes we did, we woke on Monday morning to a blanket of snow and us without snow tires.  :(   Nicole had oatmeal all ready and it was so warm and delicious on a snowy morning.

Abby posed for a quick picture with Ramona before she finished getting ready for the school bus…

Look at those eyes!  And that smile!  She is definitely her Mommy’s daughter.  :)

Abby wasn’t keen on our walking with her to the bus stop, so we stayed in the yard with Caleb and Ramona.

Abby shows us that the snow is sticky enough for a snow ball…

And off Abby goes to school.  She is getting so big and independent….

 Back inside for another hot cup of coffee.  I can’t believe that it was only a few days before that we were wearing shorts and sandals!

Damon looks so comfortable with Ramona.

Ramona brought out her toy and wanted to play….

So Caleb and Grandpa had a great time watching Ramona run to the far end of the hall as she slid on the shiny hardwood floors!

Damon shows Jim the advantages of his Mac computer.  Jim is a PC man!!  :)   Caleb sure is a cutie!

Later on, Ramona goes back out for a walk, but she managed to get away from Caleb.  Damon goes into action trying to catch her….

Thankfully herding Ramona is easier than herding cats so Caleb soon has her running home.

Nicole and Damon checked the forecast for us and unfortunately it looked like we had better get on the road and try to beat a big storm that was heading east towards Ontario.  We hated to leave but Damon and Nicole also had plenty to do before he headed off to Afghanistan.  We hugged everybody goodbye, thanked them for such a wonderful visit, and set off for Quebec.  Just as we got close to Ottawa we came up to one of Caleb’s all time favourite buildings…the ScotiaBank Place where Caleb and his Dad watch the Senators play!!

The snow had turned to rain going through Montreal.  It was not a good day for picture taking.

By the time we drove through Lennoxville we were exhausted and tried to find a place to stay for the night.

We ended up at the Lennoxville Motel and knew it had to be when we saw the Nova Scotia flag in an apartment window.  :)

We went to bed hoping that we wouldn’t see any more snow until we got home!
