WOW, it happened last night while we slept…we got our first snowfall! We awoke this morning to snow on the ground and what a shock that was. I remember our first snow last year that arrived around Thanksgiving, but that snowfall was a lot more severe and covered everything. As for today’s snow, I did not have any in the driveway to pee in, bummer!
I know that Mommy is really thankful that yesterday she worked for hours putting the LED Christmas Lights on the gutters and the bushes, so when she awoke this morning, she went “phew”, glad she did that yesterday. She also went around the yard and winterized some last minute items, like draining the water from the hose out back and putting that away and pulling out the lights from our flower beds and remembering to shut off the water knob inside the house too. (some people forget to do this and might leave their hose out all winter, but that could split your garden hose and you don’t want that!)
Now, since there is snow on the ground, it got us in the mood to bring out of storage all of our Christmas decorations, so Mommy and I will be busy unpacking everything today and putting our little lights in all the windows, hanging the wreath on the front door, and hanging our stockings. Speaking of stockings, Daddy got us this really neat metal stocking holder from Current Catalog. We wanted to get this last year, but they sold out so quickly, so we ordered ours early so we would ensure we would get one. It is the neatest stocking holder we have ever seen, so if you want one for yourself – I would order one today here: http://www.currentcatalog.com/602849.html?AS=1&keyword=metal+stocking+holder
Other than decorating, not sure what else is on the agenda for today, except some naps and perhaps help Mommy bake some cookies. She will be sharing with you in another post her Mom’s Pumpkin Bar recipe with homemade cream cheese frosting, so keep an eye out for that recipe as it is truly yummy.
Stay warm & bundle up!
