We had tickets to fly off to spend the week with Tom's family yesterday, but our flight was canceled along with most everyone else's in the area. I think something like only a dozen flights left the airport.
So! We're rebooked for a post-Christmas trip and we're crossing our fingers that this one will take. We have over a foot of snow in our backyard, which is unheard of around here. And another storm predicted for Christmas Ever--yikes. I am glad the rescheduling worked out. It was looking like we were going 0 for 3 for first parent visits this month for awhile there, which would have been disappointing. Puppy is at an age where those face-to-face interactions are so crucial and it's been a long time since we've seen either K or R.
We bundled the kids into carriers last night and took a walk around the neighborhood looking at lights on houses. It was wonderfully, beautifully, peacefully magical.
Firefly kept wanting to turn her face up toward the falling snow. Then she'd be shocked when the snow was wet. Every single time.
We watched the Sex and the City movie last night. It was about a C- anyway, but gets a total F from me for the "My doctor said all little infertile me needed to do to get pregnant is adopt!" scene. And for not even having the adopted daughter hanging out at the hospital with the rest of her family after the birth. Lame.
We're giving away my favorite carrier for itty-bitty babies over at Northwest Mom Finds (the wrap of my neighborhood flashing incident). And at my review blog I'm writing about a new website for parents and educators looking for quality children's books. Check them out if you're so inclined.
But I'd rather hear you're having much holiday fun! What is your household up to today? Are you snowed in, or free to roam?
