It is a good thing that Marissa has this jacket and hat, she'll be needing it. She has voluntarily started doing all the outside (read cold weather) chores that Curtis had done so faithfully. She gets out early to drive the trash down in the 4-wheeler (ok, so maybe there is a bit of fun involved), she feeds the dog and cares for the chickens early each morning, she'll become our snow shoveler (training the boys to take over), and the road plower (again using the 4-wheeler). Curtis did a good job training her and I'm so glad that she doesn't mind the cold weather.
What a blessing you are to all to all of us!
