It is a principle incorporated into the settled policy of America, that as peace is better than war, war is better than tribute." -James Madison

We are stuck at home because of another snowstorm. It seemed like a bummer this morning, because I had to stay home again, after being alone with the boys all day yesterday and missing Church and various other social activities in the past few weeks, but I'm over it now. I spent the day being very lazy- I read the books "Fourth Dawn" and "Fifth Seal" by Brock and Bodie Thoene, the fourth and fifth installments of their A.D. Chronicles series. It is a extremely well written and inspirational series and I encourage you all to read it. I also ate chocolate, cut material for a skirt, and made dinner. It was also nice to see Dad again- he's been so busy he hasn't been home much- and Mom told us all about her trip to the dinner theater yesterday. It took about two hours for her to tell us about the trip, her companions on the bus, describe the theater decor and the meal, tell the entire story of the play, and the trip back home. Mom is a good story teller and we girls like to hear every little detail. It's a family tradition to sit and talk in the morning after Bible study, even if we can only talk for fifteen minutes, about what we did the day before and what our plans are for the day ahead.

We probably didn't get more than a few inches here, but the wind is so strong and there are big snowdrifts all over. Schools are all closed tomorrow and the roads will still be perilous so we will probably stay home tomorrow too unless we go in to shovel snow at the business. I know we have nothing to complain about compared to New York- Jen says that they are being punished for having Hillary as a Senator.
