A surprise snowfall last weekend meant two full days of tobogganing and giggly snow play and busy evenings crafting by the fire. My hubby had just put the outdoor lights up the day before the snow came, so the effect was complete and the mood was officially set for Christmas “elving”. How sweet to see my girls embrace the spirit of giving and the joy of the white stuff. The cold weather kept the snow around for 5 days and the girls spent hours each night (and early morning) making Christmas cards and needle felting ornaments….a little festive embroidery too! The snow melted quickly today but I hope our Christmas spirit will stay going strong. My girls are now hoping we get a white Christmas! I am sure our puppy would love more too (though I hope he is better trained by the next snowfall, walking him on those icy roads can be a bit wild).
P.S. There is one more Christmas wish around here….someone wants her “two front teeth”, but mainly so she can eat apples straight on the core again!
