We're alive!

Sorry for the lack of posts case there were any doubts, we are alive.  Over the past few weeks, we have survived exams (Jared), a stomach bug (Leah), and the great British snow storm of 2010.

My mother arrived on December 17th and was originally supposed to leave today.  Unless you have been in a cave for the last few days, you have probably heard that England has gotten a little bit of snow lately.  So much, in fact, that it has wreaked havoc on all modes of transportation throughout the country.  As a result, my mother's flight was canceled and she will not be able to fly back to Houston until December 26th.  A four-day delay!  I guess we will not be having Christmas by ourselves after all!

It was not snowing when mom's flight arrived, but this is what the ground looked like by the time we exited the London Tube

The Christ Church quad covered in snow

Even the fountains in London's Trafalgar Square were frozen

Regardless of the weather, London is still beautiful at night
