Last night I ventured out into the cold to go to a ladies ornament exchange being held at the home of Mrs.Darling. I admit I was very tempted to ask my husband to drop me off, but he had plans with the kids and I didn't want to interrupt those at some indefinite time; besides, I can handle a drive in the snow 1 mile down the road, right?
Only five of us made it, compared to probably 20-30 if it had been better weather. No matter, it was still a nice time out. Here's the little snowman ornament I picked in the exchange:
It's a cute little thing. I love the shiny face, and the hat is made from a baby bootie, quite creative.
I was planning to take some of my bake sale cookies, until I realized that everyone else might do the same (considering we all have unused plates of cookies sitting around our house,lol). Instead I took this snowman cheese ball. I got the idea from Kristy, but I admit that I used a different recipe because I didn't have many of the ingredients on hand. But I loved the snowman idea.
School has been canceled yet another day. I have an extra kid due to that fact, which means one more kid churning out clay designs;) I'm thinking of making gingerbread houses this afternoon, but we'll see what the day brings.
They're talking of more snow coming tomorrow. As long as it clears up for a day or two so I can finish my Christmas shopping. And get a few packages mailed. Then the snow can come back and give us Oregonians a white Christmas. Wouldn't that be nice?
