We received about 4" snow Friday night, so we stayed in and baked Christmas cookies. So I dedicate this post to Dr. F., a dear friend who taught me that baking Christmas cut-out cookies is always worth the effort, and who would be my new optometrist if I still lived in MN.
|Everything in my house looks like it was decorated by a 4 year old...|
|Because it was!|
We probably wouldn't pass health inspection standards...
Moving on to Saturday morning, when we had to clean up our driveway. You have no idea how large your driveway is until there are 4" of snow on it!
|Daddy and his three helpers about to get started|
|C rides in the "no bo!"|
|Cutie N is happy to pull|
|little c in the "snow boat"|
|Look how helpful they are! The shoveling lasted one minute...one is under N's sled and the other behind S.|
|Warming up with homemade hot chocolate and cookies afterward|
Feeling much more Christmas-y and a little less stressed after a very snowy family weekend....and ordering the missing gifts on Amazon.
P.S. Two things that warmed my heart: A faithful blog reader offered to pick up a green Lego base for me way over on the west side of MI! And I'm receiving Christmas cards from my MN friends, so happy to see all their smiling faces and show the kids their old friends!
