Snow Day

That's Bianca playing in the snow this afternoon. I was going to go to work this morning and leave when the snow began but then I decided....the heck with that! We're forecasted for up to a foot. I worked from home in the morning and then my office closed at 12:30 so I stopped working!
We had to run out to get some medicine for Bianca (to avoid yet another trip to the ER). Her Doc took mercy on us and trusted my judgment, calling in a prescription for steroids. Thankfully the pharmacy is very close. Cleaning off the car took longer than driving there! We took some time to play in the snow. If you see that one little spot that's slightly cleared off in front of her feet, that's the bottom of a snow angel! We had about 4 or 5 inches at that point and it was still snowing HARD! It was accumulating at about an inch per hour! Too bad her snow pants, boots and sled are coming from Santa but not for another week!
When we got home, we made hot chocolate with extra marshmallows, ate some gingerbread men cookies. We turned off the lights and sat in front of our tree (below), watched Polar Express and snuggled. Now this was a good day! Though I'm looking forward to her going to bed tonight so I can start the wrapping.......

She looks like she had so much fun. I love your tree - very pretty.

Merry Christmas!
I'm assuming that the Kim who left the kind comment for me recently was you.
Just wanted to say thanks, it was much appreciated.

What a snow angel standing there in her pink and purple. Maybe the snow is getting good practice for after she gets her presents from Santa.

What a good day. It makes me want to sing (or croak, as the case may be, lol), "Let is snow, let it snow, let it snow."
