Things have been
crazy a little hectic around here. Yesterday my daughter and I decided to make sugar cookies; we make them every year, but we decided this year we should make a double batch. I have no idea what made us think we needed to make 12 dozen sugar cookies (but if I keep eating them the way I am, they might not make it to Christmas)! Four hours later, (and with some of them put in the freezer to decorate later) we were finally done. I’ve also been working on gifts, most of which I can’t post pictures of…so I wondered what picture to post today. I finally decided to share the light display my wonderful next-door neighbors put up each year–it is truly spectacular. Thankfully, my house doesn’t show in the picture because our lights are meager, at best (I’ve been meaning to put up more, but we’ve had rain nearly every day this week–and I’m never going to complain about the rain)!
And, to top this off, my younger children are home today for a SNOW day?! (I’m sympathizing today with the bloggers back east who have this happen routinely). How am I supposed to work on presents/wrap/
clean/write Christmas cards with everybody home? Parts of Las Vegas got 8 inches of snow yesterday, causing all southern Nevada schools to close today. We spent a lot of time looking at the news last evening to see the winter wonderland pictures people from all over the county were sending in!
