Many Thanks

Many thanks to all who braved the threat of stormy weather to join us at our Open House last Sunday.  The sun came out, Aurora Celtic entertained us with beautiful music, and the pony rides were a huge hit with the kids.  Merry, Pippen and Samwise delighted the crowd as only triplets can.  We had a great time visiting with old friends and making new ones.
We’re so very grateful to all the family members who were huge help in getting ready.  Once again, everything fell together despite all the obstacles.  Thanks, again, everyone!

There is now electricity within about one and half miles of the farmhouse! We’re hoping today is the big day! Hopefully by the weekend it will warm up and melt down enough that we can begin repairing fence, etc. Once again, we can’t say enough how fortunate we’ve been compared to others. We are thankful!
Special thanks goes to the volunteers at the Aurora Fire Department who have worked tirelessly in the community… first cutting trees and clearing roads, pumping out basements, delivering Red Cross meals, even picking up people to vote! The list could go on and on and on. They have helped so many.
There are more photos in this set and notes with more details on the individual photos on Flickr. Thank you so much for keeping us in your thoughts and prayers!
