Oh Snowflake! That looks BEAUTIFUL - IF it were December! Please keep that to yourself until about November, OK? I hope your parents have safe travels!

Make it a great day everyone!!
To me It would look beautiful in July/August.

We now have a winter storm warning, heavy snow, and they're concerned about the power lines & possible power outages.

If it's too dangerous for my parents to travel, Harlowe & I will just turn on the fireplace & watch a Christmas movie.

Hope they can make so you can enjoy it together. Try some snow cream!

Now that sounds like a plan.... That is by far, one of my most favorite things to do while the snow is falling down outside and that is to snuggle up on the couch with a fire in the fireplace, a hot cup of tea and a christmas movie playing... Ahhhhh, that does sound sooo nice and relaxing!!!! Have fun and enjoy.....

Ooh, me too!!! I love that movie and the soundtrack as well. My kids used to watch that one endlessly when they were little and I believe the songs were etched into my brain. I can hear them now; "Everybody wants to be a cat, because a cat's the only cat who knows where it's at. Everybody's pickin' up on that feline beat, cause everything else is obsolete...."

Kinda makes you feel like a kid again, doesn't it? lol...

After running a couple of tests the doctor decided he wanted him to go straight in to a hospital in the city where he would be able to see a specialist. I don't have all the details because as of last night they were still waiting for more test results. All I know is he has some kind of blockage and is having a procedure done this morning. My mom and brother are taking a ride back in to the city to be there. As soon as they get more information they are going to call me. His doctor here was very concerned about how bad the circulation was in that leg. So if you could please send up a quick prayer for my daddy I would really appreciate it xo
He is in my thoughts, HMG.

But I'm otherwise healthy, and the weather is beautiful, so I mustn't complain!
I hope the headache stays away the rest of the day.

Sounds like you need to hire one of those nannies to do your dishes.
