Okay, so this is the third time I've tried to post, and I'm just giving up on posting more photos than this. I always crash my internet connection when I try. So we're going to just go from here.

We are stuck. Earlier today, around 10:30 or 11, we tried to leave. We slippy-slid our way out of the driveway, which should have been a red flag, but then just kept going. We went a ways down the road, and then got totally stuck/slid whenever we tried to go again. Not good. So Suzie had to drive backwards down the road (that worked better for some reason...) back to somebody's driveway, and then we walked the rest of the way back to the cabin.

Main problem: we had no food. Because we thought we would be fine to leave, we cleaned out the fridge, and really didn't have that much to eat to begin with, because we'd eaten it all in anticipation of leaving today. So - stuck in our cabin, with no chains to put on our tires, and no way to get food. So poor Mark and Andy had to walk 3 MILES in the snow to a convenience store. They would have had to walk the three miles back had they not run into some very kind strangers, who gave them a ride in their enormous truck. Thank you, nice people!! So now we have some food, and we're staying at a discounted rate tonight. Hopefully we can get back tomorrow.

Here's some pictures from the last couple days. I'll post more when we get home.

From our day in Gatlinburg, our little $3 photo-booth session. So cute. I love these :)

After we got back from Gatlinburg, we enjoyed some time in the hot tub. Snow was falling, and obviously we were steaming a bit. It was a fun time :)

The next day, we participated in a very short snowball fight. Andy's about to make his attack...

...And Mark and Suzie retaliate :)

Our cabin this morning, covered in snow :) So pretty!

Me, on the back porch.

Emma loves the snow! (And the new sweater that Suzie knitted for her!)
