Well, that explains that snowflake phenomenon. (SME, it was a bugger getting this package on the scanner!)
This year I'm once again sharing SME's hand-drawn wrapping paper with you. As promised in my Christmas post from last year, I bought her a new box of crayons last summer. She now has sharp crayons to create her amazing wrapping paper.
This adorable mouse is on Z's present. I know what he's getting and the picture matches his present perfectly.
L's package sports a "little" jab at his age from his daughter.
SME put a VERY pertinent message on her grandparents' gift. I hope the message isn't lost on them.
After work yesterday, Z and I stopped at my parents' house to pick up the turkey and other items they are providing for the Christmas Day meal we're preparing. Dad had chemo yesterday and they were both mentally muddled. I'm so grateful that they're allowing us to host Christmas dinner this year. Dad has to go to the hospital to have his chemo pump removed tomorrow. Between that and their mental states, dinner would have been a disaster!
Winter storm "Bertha"(When did they start naming winter storms?) is upon us. We're right on the edge of the storm, so we SHOULD get only 4-7 inches of snow. It's snowing pretty heavily right now, but so far there's no wind and the temps are mild (24F). I'm extremely grateful that my loved ones won't be traveling through this! However, L will have to blow snow before my parents arrive this afternoon.
It's now time for me to wake the guys. Then I will start cooking while the guys give the house a quick clean-up.
I wish all of my beloved blog-friends a very BLESSED CHRISTMAS with family and friends!
