I was even a little excited about the white Christmas. I've had VERY few white Christmas' in my life. They are usually brown and muddy. So, Thursday BEFORE Christmas Hubby comes home and tells me he gets the whole week of Christmas off! I'm excited but I had my mind wrapped around staying here. I wasn't finished with presents!! I thought I had extra time! ACK!! How was I supposed to get it all done to leave on Saturday (ONLY 2 days away!)So after much knitting and sewing I finished everything and we left on Sunday afternoon. Would you believe I actually made make-up bags WITH zippers?! I'll post about those at a later date.
So, over the river and through the blizzard to Grandma & Papa's house we drove (actually Hubby drove and I knitted). It was -8 below zero when we left and the wind was horrible! I actually saw a women get out of her car at a gas station to walk her tiny little dog. The dog became airborne! I am NOT kidding. She had to hold the poor little thing down so it could relieve itself. haha!!
Christmas Eve we were able to meet with friends we have not seen in a long time.
We had yummy food in Suzanne's beautifully decorated home. The kids (big and little) played with the toy train and watched Polar Express. Before bed we made sure Santa's reindeer were well fed.
