The kids didn’t seem to mind the cold at all! The girls had loot bags along this year; they came prepared to gather all the candy canes that get tossed their way. It was a short and sweet parade this year…there were lots of trucks and tractors to keep Ryder happy, but it was all over before we were chilled to the bone. Tim invited us in for coffee and goodies…we had us a little party and by the time we left the snow was coming down big-time, but we were warm from the inside out!
Sunday we woke up to a winter-wonderland and the snow continued to fall all day. It was the perfect day to gather together some old friends for a party. If you're looking for a game to play over the holidays, try 'Apples to Apples'. We had such a hoot! It's a super simple game & the more playing the merrier. The object of the game is to play a card from your hand that best describes the adjective the judge throws out. Players take turns being 'the judge', so the fun part is choosing a card based on what you think the judge’s preferences are. It's a fun game and a great way to spend time with friends or family.
It was late by the time everyone left...the snow was turning to freezing rain. Today we are facing slush and preparing for the 'pineapple express' that is supposed to be dumping four inches of rain on us in the next day or two. That's winter weather on the west coast!
I'm off to buy some flowers for someone dear to my heart.
