Let it Snow
Well, after one full day in the US, it snowed. I woke up this morning (4:15am, thank you) and found the ground covered in snow. I guess after I went to sleep last night (8pm, thank you) it rained. So although we only had three inches of snow accumulation, my niece had a snow day today. Her first of the school year. Apparently, there was a nice thick layer of ice under the snow.
As a result, today we continue with the Christmas activities. Yesterday we made about 18 dozen cookies. It took about 5 hours to bake all those cookies, but what fun for the whole family. Today we decorated the tree, went sledding and have plans to find a store that sells gingerbread houses (going out after the ice melts a bit). It's nice to drive around the area to see the Christmas lights and decorations -- you just don't see lighted reindeer eating grass on the streets of Paris. Go figure.

That is so much fun that you got snow. I hope that it stays through Christmas, so you can have the often sung about "White Christmas."
18 dozen cookies? Are you trying to feed the eastern seabord?

Am desperately jealous about the snow, being Canadian and all... I miss it so. But, revenge shall be mine! It's supposed to snow tonight here!
So far, not a flake.

Bonnie, Wecome to the blog. I look forward to hearing from you.
BM, I am so exhausted since I arrived! My daughter woke me at 3:30am. I'm afraid she's trying to kill me. It's only 6pm now and I really want to go to sleep.
