We woke up to a big surprise this morning. It's snowing! I think we just might have a white Christmas!
I poked my head out the door at six to see what the conditions were. I'm guessing we have about 4 inches of new snow so far. They're saying we'll most likely have a record amount of inches on the ground for Christmas, the record for the snowiest December ever, and who knows what other records . I believe this is our eighth snow storm since November first. Know what? I love it! I love the new fallen snow. It's March when I don't like it....when it's hard, and chunky, and dirty, and ugly. This is beautiful! And I especially love it to be snowing on Christmas Eve!
My blog lately has contained only snow and food reports! Here's more food for ya! On Wednesday we motored up to our brother and SIL's place. (I love old newspaper reports that always say so and so 'motored' to such and such a place!) We had our sibling Christmas party and celebrated the retirement of our baby brother! I cracked up when I looked at my pictures of the event. Way back in the left hand corner of the counter is a pan of egg bake. In front of the green bowl is a plate of fruit and next to it is sweet soup, a Norwegian fruit soup. The rest of the plates and platters and dishes contain only treats and cookies! A good and proper brunch, I'd say!
oldest daughter Kari's family celebration. Tomorrow morning we again attend services at 10 am, and then we'll head to a local motel where I rented a small meeting room......that opens up unto the pool! The grands will have their choice of pool, wading pool with fountain, or hot tub. There are tables and chairs around the pools, so adults can supervise without swimming themselves, and the others can sit in the room with the food. We are dining on sloppy joes, relishes and dips, cheese and crackers, chips and dips, and cookies and candy. Oh, and pickled herring. You have to have pickled herring! Everyone brings something to contribute to the spread. I'm guessing there will also be shrimp, venison sausage, and other easy to eat foods. No sit down meal with silverware and linens and spilled gravy for us!
Wishing you a blessed Christmas! Be happy and be safe.
