Well, our first snow appeared last night, just in time for some holiday fun. SweetPea had a ball sledding with friends and came home bubbling with the excitement of wet and fun and hot chocolate. It was hilarious to watch the puppy explore the new white world outside--gingerly stepping one paw at a time in the fluff, then suddenly tearing around the whole yard in circles as fast as she could, panting, pausing to eat it or roll in it, then off again. We forget that so many experiences are 'firsts' for her.
We had such a great day yesterday...had a walk with Hubby in the crisp, storm-coming air, then the three of us spent hours in front of the fireplace wrapping Christmas presents and watching The Sound of Music. Holidays are often so busy that it was wonderful to just be together and savor the moments.
And I'm praising the Lord for sending my laptop back to me fixed and in perfect running order! Wow, I feel like I have my wings back.
It's been a beautiful long weekend in which I am Thanks-giving.
