On a more personal note...

This morning we woke up to about 10-12 inches of snow.
It is very rare to see much white stuff in the Memphis area, so we are enjoying it.

Most of the churches in the area are closed today, but not ours.

Our pastor is stubborn brave, and says "Don't call in, crawl in." Apparently, the insurance company has told him to quit saying that, but he does it anyway.

Living out a ways from town, I wouldn't have even tried, but around 11:00 last night, I was reminded that I was singing this morning. So I HAD to at least try.

The rule in our church is that you can dress how you like, but if you are a lady, and you are singing the special music, you have to wear a skirt or dress. Shawn told me I had to wear pants today, but I wanted to obey the rules and wear a skirt, so I compromised and wore a long skirt with a pair of stretch pants underneath.

After using the bathroom, things just didn't want to lay right, so I went into the nursery, where Shawn was and asked him if I had everything where it belonged. I told him it felt funny. His answer?

Loud enough for everyone to hear, he says, "Just take your pants off."

**The sound of everyone's head turning to see how I would respond**

So I went there...

"You're always trying to get me to do that!"

Good thing there were only REALLY good friends there! 'Course, I never would have said it, otherwise.

Bwahahahahaha! I think I just laughed snow out my nose. :)

I'd say 'get a room' but since there are so MANY ROOMS in church...well...

I'm sorry we missed what I'm sure was beautiful, but with 12+ inches, we couldn't make it.
