Idaho Power was able to get here and replace the powerpole today! It was pretty amazing to see them replace the pole. We were without power for 5 hours while they fixed everything and the kids arrived during that time but just as it was getting dark they finished. We ate pizza for dinner and then played some games. We finally get to have our Christmas and are so thankful for electricity!!! Tomorrow Curt & Kallie arrive and we will have our Christmas Eve dinner and then open presents on New Years Day. It is still FREEZING cold here with our high 17 and our low -5 but we have power so life is good!
