Snow Day

We woke up this morning to a good coating of the snow on the ground with more still falling. In fact, it's still falling now at 3:46. So our plans to get a tree this afternoon got pushed up a little bit, and we threw on clothes and headed out in the snow to pick out our tree.

Lilypad Princess was too excited by the falling snow to pay much attention to the trees, so LP's dad and I chose a tree, tied it to the car and headed home. We all had a nice lunch together and now I'm working on lasagna for dinner while LP and her dad take a nice long nap.

If LP wakes up before it's dark, her dad will take her out to play in the snow again. Then I think we'll do a little baking, maybe some cookies and a pie to take with us for dinner tomorrow night and we'll all relax in front of a fire before bed.

I hope everyone else is having a lazy day as well and enjoying watching the snow from a nice warm place.

I am glad all my children had such a wonderful day. I can't wait to fly in on Sat. so I can play in the snow with my princess. Counting the days, Nana

Wow, you got your tree in those conditions?? It was beautiful, but I moved the car from the road to my driveway around 9:30am and had a tough time. LP looks adorable, as always. Glad you enjoyed the day.

Great photos. What about using one of these for the Christmas card? No? I'm looking forward to seeing your decorated tree!
