Merry Christmas 2008...


...and Happy New Year! This was the scene out the front of the house this morning. What's not showing up is the blustery, snowy wind that is producing this landscape.
Wouldn't this be a beautiful picture on ...CHRISTMAS EVE!? Have I mentioned what the kiddos and I had planned for today? Today is summer sandal purchase day. Yep, we're going into the big city to pick out our summer footwear.
Earlier in the week I told the kids of my plans. In preparation for the momentous event Anna received some paint for her little piggy toes. We are all set.
I will be ready to go shortly, as soon as I unpack all of the winter gear I previously washed and packed away. My poor little Anna will be wearing snow boots over her fully-socked painted toes to bring her sandals home in a box.
Merry Christmas to all and to all a Good Night.

Feel for ya babe. Even on that 71 degree day, I was tempted to pack away all of the gear. I did not. For such a snow as this.

I'm just shaking my head. At least it's melting quickly. Enough already. It will be MAY next week! Happy sandal shopping in your snow boots. Did you check out the flip flops at Old Navy? 2 pairs for $5. We stocked up.

Ha! You're such a good writer.
Poor girlie. She can come see me. It's 86 today, but we've still got our electric blanket on the bed, just in case. Think warm thought Katie.

Oh MY! That would be a lovely Christmas card. I feel for you. Just keep chanting "It's April. It has to melt real soon!"

Chant that especially when slogging through it. We have had blizzards in April and October in Iowa...so I do feel your pain. : )

Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting. That little Birdie is a sweet one, eh?

Hey Kelly...thanks for stopping. Yes, IA has it's moments. I was born in Sioux City, but was only there for 9mos. I'm a semi-Iowan myself. :)
