Let the games begin!

The California grandkids arrived in a major snowstorm.  They are the only people in the household who appreciate our unplowed twisty slippery road.  They spent all day out in the snow, except for the cookie-making break.  Whew!  Today it’s ice-skating and then a walk at the head of the lake, in celebration of the Winter Solstice.  We’ll return home for hot chili, a toasty fire, and the lighting of our Solstice candle, which will burn until morning on this longest night of the year.  More snow is expected tonight and tomorrow, and sub-zero temperatures, as we head into Christmas Eve.  Fortunately, the Billings family look they’ll get a break in the weather as they travel across the state on Saturday, in cold sunshine.  Then, all the cousins under my roof, as Rudolph flies overhead.

Snow+Christmas+Children=Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!

“Our hearts grow tender with childhood memories and love of kindred, and we are better throughout the year for having, in spirit, become a child again at Christmas-time.” ~Laura Ingalls Wilder
