Well…I’m coming to grips with the fact that this may not be a super white winter. Although I was pleased to see that tomorrow and Thursday’s forecast has snow in it,i’m not going to get my hopes up that we will get feet and feet of snow needed for downhill skiing, and cross country skiing. (Who wants to ski on fake snow?) We all enjoyed a 51 degree day yesterday playing outside on the swing set with the dogs & Kirra, and again today,although the temp is in the mid 30’s the bright sun is making it feel warmer. I stayed up past 1:00 a.m. reading Mockingjay (book 3 in the Hunger Games trilogy) and I can barely put it down. Jason bless him let me sleep in today until 10:30. If you haven’t already – go grab yourself a copy of this trilogy. Its so excellent! I’d liken it to Harry Potter & Twilight, only better even! Right after I post this i’m off to read some more! Christmas was so great around here. We all got really amazing gifts. (too many to even list) Top gifts were a Keurig Machine, a speedlite for my camera, and Jason got a nook and a gift cert to the Men’s Wearhouse. Santa brought Kirra a baby 6 & 1 set (Playpen crib/bouncy chair & more. Kirra got lots of clothes a tinkerbell doll,games and a remote control car. The real gift – and the best gift though came with the announcement of my brother & Nicole getting engaged on the 24th! I’m so happy for them, and love Nicole & her family like they were my own… and now they OFFICIALLY will be! Merry Christmas!
