Emily was induced late Wednesday afternoon, but after two attempts to put meds and Olivia’s heart rate dropping – they decided to do a C-section. Mommy and baby are doing well. They went home yesterday.

Northwest Arkansas has a slight chance of snow for Christmas this year. On one hand it would be nice to have a white Christmas. On the other hand, it might prevent loved ones from reaching my house on Christmas day. If only there were a way to keep the snow off the roads. If only……….
Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening by Robert Frost
Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.
My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.
He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sound’s the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.
The woods are lovely, dark and deep.
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.
This is my favorite poem and not really a Christmas poem, but still I wanted to share it with you today.
I want to wish you a very Merry Christmas. Love – Starwoodgal

Before I became a blogger, I was a lurker. Reader. Comment leaving BLOG visitor. And, I made some really nice friends ‘out there’. But, the BLOG / Web site I’ve been visiting the longest is Colorado Guy.
If you want to read some very entertaining stories, see some beautiful Colorado scenery, and get to know a little bit more about Steve – you must visit his website. You won’t regret it. Lots of fun. Kind of crazy. And, some of the nicest folks you’ll run into ‘out there’. Or follow Steve on Twitter or Facebook. Colorado Guy. Can’t miss it. He even has a fan club on Facebook.
Now – here’s scoop. Steve is coming to Arkansas to watch the Razorbacks play South Carolina. And, I’m going with him! I’m so thrilled. Steve is coming for a visit! He plans on doing some hiking (duh!), ball game craziness, and then hiking (again) up Mt. Magazine – the highest point in Arkansas. I’m sure we’ll be able to read about it over at Colorado Guy or Altitude Snobs. I’ve met other friends from Colorado Guy.com in person, but I’ve never met Steve. Oh – we’ve e-mailed and talked on the phone, but now – I get to meet Steve in person. Steve – the New Jersey native transplanted in Coloardo. Steve – the Bike Across America guy. Steve – from all his crazy stories/adventures. Which Steve?
See you in a few weeks, my friend. And, bring a red shirt for the Arkansas game. Go Hogs!
