Yesterday we had our first snow and the day started out with us driving to Baltimore to see the kids Godsister in a mini performance of The Nutcracker. She did fabulous and her point work was terrific. Of course navigating there on the highways and with drivers that didn’t really feel like they should slow down to allow for the elements proved more than interesting. We saw at least 12 fender benders and a few flipovers but thankfully it didn’t look like anyone was injured. We left Baltimore and headed to the mall for ornament shopping. Being at the mall and lunch time, the kids wanted pizza from Sbarro’s….they are in every mall, aren’t they? πŸ˜‰ My mom wanted to keep shopping but quite frankly I was getting tired and we started to make our way home.

When we arrived home, the snow was still coming down but no longer heavy and some had actually started to melt but that didn’t stop the kids from wanting to play so out they went.

Nana helped them make a snowman as Momma doesn’t really do cold. πŸ˜€

The snow actually picked up so my mom stayed the night and the kids continued their play today. They rolled down the hill in the backyard.

The great thing about last night was that I finished a hat. I have knitted scarves and purses but never a hat. Of course, I have some definite tweaking to do on the next one but my Mom really liked it so she took it and went home to my Dad. πŸ™‚
