We’re headed home Saturday, and the curse holds true.  Nearly every time we drive through Kansas City the weather is bad.  We’re supposed to have a snowy mix, so your prayers will be welcomed. Not much else to tell. We spent the day sitting around watching t.v., Lloyd’s mom made a delicious dinner, and now […]
