Just a Little Snow

We have just a little snow, as you can see on the bird house above!

We had a great Christmas with lots of friends and family.  We had a house full on Christmas Eve and then went to good friends on Christmas Day and other friends on Boxing Day.
Had to go to the mall the next day to spend my gift cards at the Pandora store!!
DS2 was supposed to go to London, England on a flight this weekend but it was changed to Brisbane, Australia with a 50 hour layover.  He face timed us this morning.  He had already slept through the New Year's celebrations-he couldn't stay awake after the 15 hour flight.  He was having breakfast and it was already 34C at 10 a.m. When he gets back he will be on holiday until March and will be skiing in Utah the whole time.   What a tough life he has!!!!! 
We will be having DS3 and family for dinner tomorrow and then that will be the end of the holiday celebrations.  Those that have to will be going back to work or school and I will be spending a few days taking down the tree and putting away all the christmas decorations
It's all over for another year!!

We went to a fabulous Greek restaurant last night with our very good friends to celebrate both our wedding anniversaries.  We got married on the same date but 5 years apart.  We have celebrated together for the last 32 years.  The food was delicious and the company was fabulous.  

Today we are under a weather advisory, we are expecting 20cm of snow by tomorrow morning.  The snow started at about 8a.m. so we went to the grocery store at 9:30 to pick up the last few items we needed and we were home by 10:45.  It was getting pretty nasty out there by then so I'm glad we don't have to go out again until Christmas Day.  Oh yeah, how could I forget, we'll probably be out several times shovelling snow!!  The joys of living in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains!!

Bye for now.
