Snow Storm, etc.

Mid-morning Christmas day it started snowing and we ended up with about 5 inches of snow.  It was beautiful, cold and windy and we just hibernated most of the weekend.  We had a wonderful Christmas with Amy and Sophie and loved Sophie's first Christmas.  Our son and his family didn't make it down though and the weather kept us from going there, so we are still waiting to have Christmas with them.

This is Sophie's first sled ride.  She loved the snow as long as she didn't have to get in it or get it on her!

Christmas morning......

Serving tea to Pooh at her new table and chairs

 Helping granddaddy (with Santa's help) put together the race track.

 I love my Dora bag!
More tea!

She didn't know what to make of opening gifts at first, but learned quickly!

We're anxiously now awaiting the second round with the other granddaughters!

I don't think I ever posted pictures of the finished Bella's Mittens - they are a gift, but haven't been given yet.

 I love the long mittens, so warm. Since I had a little extra time and and a little extra yarn, I found a pattern for a warm headband/ earwarmer and finished this to add to the mittens. It was a quick knit but turned out cute.

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas, a nice relaxing week, and then a Happy New Year!

The mittens turned out well. I know you had such a special Christmas! I remember our first Christmas with the boys. Wish I could do it again!
