This morning, after crawling out of our flannel-clad log bed, I followed the sweet fragrance of coffee down to the dark living room. Winter Wonderland greeted me there! All night long the snow tumbled down and the cold temperatures welcomed a huge pile up! Now Bill is out in his down coat (and shorts - people do this in Colorado) shoveling the driveway. Our nice neighbor, Joan, is outside as well, wearing her lime green gloves and hot pink hat!
We're sure to have a bright day inside! The whiteness of the landscape will find its way in here. Yay! I think I'll make some sugar cookies, frost them and top them with sprinkles - as a tribute to this show stopping weather!
Yesterday, Birdie and Bug spent the day here, so Kelli could finish her painting. Birdie busied herself with a Tinkerbell PEZ dispenser that Reve brought me from Disney World. I wore the Tinkerbell pin Reve also gifted me with and Birdie was okay with that as long as she had her own Tinker who "fraps her wings" and gives vitamin-like candy on demand! Bug let us cuddle her and ate like a trooper, slept like a bear cub and crawled around in that adorable fleeting manner that little girls who are nine months old tend to do!
Jenny, Scott, and BEANS joined us for a Saturday visit yesterday, too. One look at her cute baby bump and I'm reminded that soon I'll have Samantha Rose, a tiny baby shrimp, to cuddle and love! Jeff stayed around, opting not to drive to Boulder to see friends due to the storm warning, and he is always the gentle uncle who chases, laughs, and helps. He cheerfully endures all the noise.
Brad wrote a lovely post (see here) about his day with April and the kids. They went to Christmas program practice and laughed and loved all day long. I hope he'll find "The Snowman" on YouTube and show it to CB and Finn. It was a favorite of his!
