I would have written about the snow last night, but my computer was being extremely slow. So I waited till this morning.
It's beautiful. Of course, snow always is. I finally got to throw the kitties in snow as I've been promising to do to them. Okay, we didn't actually throw them, we just kind of tossed them, but still. Anyway, it was funny to watch them step and fall through (it's about an inch). They were pretty good sports about it, and afterwards, Pickles turned into Super Kitty, so she must not have minded too much.
So is Elmo overdone to anyone else? Sesame Street used to be about Big Bird and his friends; Elmo only became the craze because of that one fateful Christmas several years ago. And now it seems as though SS runs around Elmo.
We had so much fun yesterday! We went to a place that Joy (the pastor's wife) recommended called The Little Red Wagon. It's a consignment store, mostly for children. But they also have stuff for expectant mommies and regular grown-ups. Jon's mom got a really nice new wool coat (she's wanted one for a long time). I got a bunch of skirts and a couple dresses for Jill. We also got her another pair of black dress shoes. She has wide feet, so we always have to buy a size up in dress shoes. We got her snow pants, a thick winter coat, and an adorable two pointed hat with tassles. She looks adorable!
That afternoon we left Jill with Ginny and (finally) organized our storage unit. Now everything is much better organized, and we were able to get some much-needed stuff out. Then we drove over Hurricane Mountan Road, a road that goes right over a mountain and closes in the winter. Halfway up, we stopped and just took a walk together. It was nice to have some time alone together. But it was so cold, and we finally found out why when we got home. That's when it started to snow.
Later we went to church and on the way home, we slid off the road b/c Jon shifted (accidently) into first while we were going downhill. But we got out of the ditch okay. It snowed for a long time more, and when we woke up, we were in a white wonderland. (I know it's cliched, but c'mon--it's true!)
So now I must go. I haven't had breakfast and I'm starving!
