This was at 3:15 p.m....and this one at 9:00 p.m. tonight:
...So I guess, no picnic or BBQ for awhile! Sassy, the girl's grandmother (Craig's mum) is coming to town on Tuesday evening, but since she arrives in Burlington - we are taking off for our cabin tomorrow night. We ended up having 8 leaks throughout the cabin, due to a faulty thermostat. It was an expensive lesson in managing recreational property that needs to be weatherized. Let's just say - we've learned it! Here is Craig out shoveling our front walk, I'm not sure why since it will probably be totally covered by morning!
Back-tracking a bit to Thursday, our drive to NY was without incident, we got what we needed done. We left around 3:00 p.m. to head home early because, yes, it was snowing again and I didn't want to get stuck anywhere. It was a long two and half hour drive, by myself, in a white tunnel visual affect - but we made it home safely.
Last week, I decided to dye my hair-again - because I felt it was getting a bit on the red side. Anyway, I did an awful job with it, so I've been trying to avoid close-up shots, but when you get your Christmas cards you'll see the bad dye job. With the new year, I'm heading straight to a friend's hairstylist to it right! The photo above was taken after the dye job and on Thursday before our trip to NY.
I also finished my Pink Christmas Gift and am hoping that my last minute habits will still get it their on time for my pink gal. I know I'm not supposed to show it, but it's only part of it, and who knows what the rest of it looks like - it could be anything! I'm just excited to show this little part off, because I finished it! whoo hoo!
And, I made a huge pile of our family's favorite candy tradition: Cathedral windows. We made them every year as long as I can remember, they are easy and very good - especially if you like colored marshmallows...
I also managed to fit in a batch of cupcakes and grocery shopping before having to pick the girls up for school and get ready for the ward Christmas party...
We shared the party with the Chinese Branch that also shares our ward building. Our poor bishop had the committee over the party fall through. He ended up doing most of the work and busing people around - he was a bit flustered. But there was a fun atmosphere and lots of great singing and good food! Cat, her daughter and husband and Cici were sitting at the table with us...
I will be away from the computer for at least three days, so everyone have a great week and enjoy your beautiful Christmas preparations! Can't wait to see all your traditions and fun!
