We woke this morning to what I would classify as a whole heap of snow, literally. An hour south of us, it snowed maybe two inches, but on Montreal Island we had 14 inches of snow fall from the time we went to bed to 7:00 a.m. It's now late on Monday, and it's still snowing! My SPT this week is a bit different than Lelly's challenge, but because I couldn't get out to purchase the things I needed to make my Christmas card holder - I'll show you what I was doing instead! This is me having just fallen in the snow, something I like to do and it let the girls see how silly mum can be. I took this photo right as I hit the snow!
This picture is indicative of what Montreal looks like in the winter. We had no bread in our cupboards, so I packed the girls and I in our snow gear and we walked to the store. On the way was this huge pile of snow that was being used as a suedo snow sledding hill. They didn't have school today, which I found out after walking them to school! Heaven's sake - hasn't Montreal dealt with snow before? I guess it's the quick and massive amounts of snow that threw the city off, plus the clean-up alone they are saying is going to be about $17 million!
So, now, for the winner of the star box Christmas giveaway - I am such a fan of Christmas music, Ave Maria, O Holy Night, Mary's Lullaby - all of them are so beautiful. Handel's Messiah is a master piece and who wouldn't get chills listening to the Hallelujah Chorus! I chose the winner based on your comments and whether or not you picked my favorite Christmas song - Crystal - you are the winner! Why? Well, my favorite all time Christmas song - the one I love to play on the piano and sing is: Angels We Have Heard on High! I just love this hymn and have always felt that it should be sung at every church meetings during the holidays. Playing the piano at church can get a bit monotonous, but with this hymn - it's always fun to play. What do you think of this song?
Tomorrow, I will post today's crafts I finished. Since I couldn't get side-tracked by doing any errands and the girls didn't want to play outside all day - I got a few crafts completed that I've been wanting to finish - can't wait to post about them!
Are you working on any Christmas crafts?
