Well here it was another weekend of snow! I LOVE snow but why is it lately that every good snow day is wasted on the weekend??!! At least we started the weekend with that snow (cold) day on Friday.
So we finally took the last of Christmas down and packed all the stuff away. The corner where the tree was looks kinda bare. But you know it was way past time to de-Christmas when the ornaments on the tree were dusty. I thought we were surely the last ones to put our Christmas stuff away until Saturday night.......
We went over to some friend's house for a White Elephant/Dirty Santa Party (you know, where you get rid of all your junk by giving it to unsuspecting friends!) and their house was completely and totally still decorated for Christmas! It was amazing - there was the tree blazing forth in all it's glory while all the snowmen were lined up on the hearth and the entire Nativity sat on the mantel and the candles were flickering. The snow was falling - it was Christmas all over again. Anyways we had a nice time. "Accidentally" left my "gift" there - it was a box of decorations for all seasons......there was a 4th of July mug, an Easter basket, a St. Patrick's towel, a snowman......now all of those things are hiding around their house. They'll be sooo surprised! Tom's gift was a doormat that said "Well butter my buns and call me a biscuit" Seriously! You know we didn't leave that behind! I'm not sure whether to put that at our front door or the back!
Sunday night we had dinner with some other friends and then played a rousing game of Scattergories. Never played that one before.....it was the Junior version.......just my speed! Best thing was I didn't have to get up early for work today because I have the day off for MLK day!
