We woke up to a beautiful heavy snowfall this morning. LM and I love the cozy feeling of being inside on a morning like this.....we've enjoyed a nice breakfast of home made waffles, watched our favorite morning shows, and read the paper. All with help from Ms G. LM has just gone out to shovel and I'm getting ready to go out to clear off the cars. The sun is beautiful on the new snow and I am needing the fresh air.
We're thoroughly enjoying our first quiet weekend of the new year. I guess it takes all the holiday hubbub to make us truly savor these quiet times. Yesterday we did go out for a great long walk and take a ride to our favorite beach to watch the storm front moving in.
As part of my effort to catch the blog up with all my pictures.....here is Samantha's trip to see Frosty.
Starting a new tradition, Sara and I took a Saturday before Christmas to bring Samantha to see the Christmas train exhibit and meet Frosty the Snowman at a local department store. She was spellbound and we had such fun enjoying it all through her eyes. She picked out a special ornament to purchase for her tree as a momento of the day, and sat down to write a letter to Frosty, as well. We didn't count the various train set-ups but they were numerous and amazing.
This castle was fascinating....
Here comes the Christmas train!
Samantha enjoyed several warm hugs with Frosty as he/she made their way around to greet all the visitors.
It was really fun and we had a nice lunch afterward, along with some shopping. Hopefully, next year we can be joined by Teddy!
PS....it seems that frosty had time to write letters to all who left one for him that day, and Samantha was one very thrilled little girl to receive that special note.
