Snow Day

Yesterday was our first major snow storm of the season. I was in work for only a few hours before they decided to shut down early for the day. Yay! Snow Day! Our neighbors are hosting an open house this weekend. Rather then bring a hostess gift for our hosts extraordinaire, I decided to make cocoa kits for their three kids. I think they will get a kick out of these.


Here are the after effects of the storm. It wasn't too bad, maybe 5 inches or so of snow. Jeff's outside snow blowing the sidewalks now.


These trees act as the fence between our backyard and our neighbors. I think they make a lovely set of Christmas trees with the new fallen snow.


Margot doesn't mind the snow. She likes to run around in it but she was a bit timid as this is the first storm of the season and I don't think she quite remembers what to do!


A little housekeeping, I have one Silver Glitter Tree Ornament left in my shop if anyone is interested. Now I must get ready for work, I really should be out the door soon! Have a wonderful day friends.




P.S. Special thanks to Karla for hosting the fabulous Holiday Home party. I was overwhelmed by all the wonderful comments I received! I think I got to visit all of you and share in your wonderful and magical worlds!

I love Margot's blue sweater. But Mom! She needs some booties to keep those footsies warm. I envy you the snow, I really do. It's too warm here. Not at all like Christmastime.
