Baby it's cold outside!

Winter weather has come early to Oregon. I had icy roads on Monday night when I drove to the airport to pick up Jim from his trip to Illinois. It was really icy this morning and it's cold tonight! As you can see in the photos, the hard freeze has put an end to the flowers now.
We are trying to be positive about some bad news Gina received today from NMSU.Due to budget cuts, it looks like she will only have one class to teach next semester. Jim and I have been thinking of ways to help her as it's important for her to keep teaching for her resume. Angie spent the afternoon with her sister and I think that really helped.
We dropped off the white Camry for John and Ang to use and brought the girls home for homemade lentil soup and bread and an evening of just being together. We hope to find a place to spend Christmas at the beach tomorrow and will probably do some more Christmas shopping together or just have some fun. Need to stay positive and be thankful for what we do have.
