Happy Groundhog Day!

Many of you may not know, but Groundhog Day is an important holiday for the Freas Family. David's dad grew up in Punxsutawney and his great great grandfather's brother Clymer Freas, editor of The Punxsutawney Spirit, is credited as one of the founders of Groundhog day.

Usually we throw a party and make the secret family ground hog punch recipe. This year we were busy with our new baby and almost let the holiday slip by unnoticed.

Luckily David's parent's decorated our house for us and our neighbors gave us a special Freas Family groundhog.

Phil, aka 'seer of seers' 'prognosticator of prognosticators' saw his shaddow this year predicting six more weeks of winter. If it is six more weeks of weather like today that is fine by me.
