Let's hope that 13 is a lucky number for all of us.
Last year we didn't have any snow. This year we had a very white Christmas. By Christmas all of the cars were out of drifts and the roads were mostly passable.
My sister Nancy and I had to run Jake and Zoie down to meet their father halfway Christmas Day as rear wheel drive pickups still couldn't maneuver well on our hills so Jake couldn't drive but front wheel drive did fine.
This is Spike and his new little sister Honey. As you can see, he's not exactly thrilled. The blurred picture due to perpetual motion is a pretty accurate description of Honey.
Spike's a well behaved dog and while he only tolerated Honey at first, he plays with her now if he thinks no one is looking. And he does like the fact that he can "borrow" her chewies. Of course, if you give him one, he doesn't eat it but hers are delicious. I always keep an extra on hand to give her when he takes hers. He tries to chew his really close to her so he can get hers too but I won't let him do that. I'm head dog around here and that's pushing the limits. :)
The snow is great for snowboarding down the hill. If you want a snowman, however, you need to content yourself with Grandma's "Snow Guys". Cullen and Quinn tried really hard to get the snow to pack for a snowman but no dice.
They had a great time trying though.
Happy New Year's ladies. Keep stitching.
