No card to share today, although I did make a bunch yesterday while watching the snow fall! We were told to expect a blizzard beginning Friday night and lasting through Saturday. So I managed to talk my husband into going for dinner Friday evening and finding a place to take our Christmas picture. (I had been putting it off, waiting for the baby bump to grow a bit more.) We took my brother in law along as our photographer. Here is the picture we ended up with...
(There is no way I would go out in short sleeves now, but it actually wasn't too bad at the time...but maybe that's just the pregnancy heat wave talking!)
Sure enough, we woke up Saturday morning to blowing and drifting snow that lasted all day! It was really hard to tell how much snow we were getting since we live on a relatively wide open hill where it blows all over the place. A few trucks in our neighborhood ventured out and this car made an attempt...but it was a huge fail!
It wasn't until this morning that we even attempted to go out in the mess! At about 9:30 we were still waiting for the city plow to come by when my dad came by. He had to plow a path on the road to get to our driveway. (Not sure why our street is last on the plow list...it's noon now and there is still no sign of the plow.)
Anyway, see that big bare spot on the driveway?? All the snow that was supposed to be there, blew up against our garage door instead!
Andrew and a neighbor worked on shoveling that while my dad took care of the rest of the driveway and I stayed warm and dry in the house! (At least I have a good excuse for not being out there this year!)
Now that we can actually drive out of our garage and down the road, we are headed out with my parents to a bakery for a Christmas Cookie Exchange. For $45, we get to sample about 30 kinds of cookies while sipping on Hot Cocoa and Cider, then we can pick 12 dozen of our favorites to take home! As much as I love to bake cookies this time of year, I don't really think this deal can be beat - especially since my kitchen won't need to be cleaned up afterwards!!
Enjoy your day!
