When you were a kid, did you stall with going home before dark? Did you do that when sledding?
We don’t have snow often in Mississippi.
But I have memories of mounds of snow at our house in Chicago in my very young years.
PAM can share whether she or HBD (Painter Artist Mom and Handy Builder Dad) had to drag me home at dark.
Wouldn’t we all want hot chocolate (and, of course with a candy cane) after a long day at play in the cold?
And, yes, gingerbread cookies, too.
Memories come to mind of building forts (hey, I had brothers!) and having snowball battles with neighborhood kids.
Our sledding Rudolph has a broken antler from one too many snowball fights. And very soon, he’ll have a serious job to do after dark…leading Santa’s sleigh.
He’s wrapped in a scarf stolen from my closet. I found the two-sided scarf this season at Wal-Mart. It’s my most recent steal/deal.
Anything to keep warm! Even the plastic flatware looks cold!
Baby, it’s cold outside!
This Christmas table is wishful thinking, though. Even though it was below freezing last night, our forecast predicts seventy degrees on Christmas day. Ugh!
Are you expecting snow at your house for Christmas?
