They called it 'Snowmageddon' . . .

. . . and they weren't fucking around!

Just last Thursday I could see frozen grass clawing through patches of icy snow.
Today? Not so much.

The snowbanks are high and deep. (That's my neighbour's backyard rink. Dude loves his kids. Alot.)

The BBQ and garbage can are almost invisible.

And that's how much snow my car accumulated in just one night! I totally drove it yesterday!!
I'm supposed to drive it again today, but I don't think I want to unearth it. Seriously, napkins just aren't that important. Napkins AND drinks though . . maybe.

White Christmas indeed.

Speaking of Christmas, I didn't share the last 2 gifts I made!

Probably my favourite of the bunch:

Liked it so much I made one for myself. Only red.

And finally:
For 42MainSt, who can use a little extra love right about now.

Today is slated to be my family's Christmas fete, taking place chez nous. The house isn't tidy enough, the cooking isn't prepped enough, and I still have to go get napkins and drinks and baby cereal. Why did I volunteer to have everyone over?? Remind me that this is a bad idea in the future, okay?

Amid all the hustle and bustle - remember to have yourself a Merry Christmas, a Happy Hanukkah, A Swell Saturnalia -- whatever you celebrate, and even if you don't . . . enjoy it.

Let your family come to you and enjoy you, however they find you and your house! We go to Stratford, to accommodate the family with the little one, and we try to reassure my SIL that all is well.

Enjoy your evening and your girl.

I hung mine on my Christmas tree as an ornament (it happens to go perfectly with my colour scheme too) and it looks great there. Thank you so much!
