Monday, Monday

 Due to the impending hurricane, there was no school today and Troy didn't need to go into work.  The girls watched a movie while I gave them a manicure and pedicure (Halloween colors, of course).  The girls read books together upstairs, and then all got quiet.  Evelyn came downstairs, but there was no sign of Julia.  I went up to her room, and found Julia fast asleep in her bed.  The girl hasn't taken a nap for a year and a half!

 I woke up Julia at 4:00, and then all four of us played a round of Sorry.  While playing the board game, the doorbell was the mailman with a package for Julia and Evelyn!  Grandma Linda sent a Halloween box with stickers, candy and glow-in-the-dark toys.  It was definitely a pleasant surprise on a rainy day.
Shortly after playing games, we made and ate supper while we still had power.  The wind really started to pick up around 6:30 pm, so we rushed the girls through their shower/bath while the lights were still on.  The lights did flicker once, when we saw a greenish glow in the sky (aka a transformer blowing up...).  Here's the wind forecast for tonight - doesn't look nearly as good as the weather in Omaha at the bottom of the screen.
