We had our first snow on Saturday! It started late morning and continued until sometime during the night. On my way to bed I looked out the window and it was still going strong. Since it was Saturday we didn't have to go anywhere or do anything. I love snow storms when it's a weekend and I don't have to drive anywhere. We were all home, cozy warm, drinking hot chocolate, as the snow fell. I stayed in sweat pants all day. It was soooo nice!
When I woke up Sunday morning the sun was out and everything was covered in marshmallow fluff!
The last of autumn's roses are now snow covered. I love seeing flowers in the snow.
The miracle of the seasons ♥
View from my second floor window this morning.
Hello snowy world. Winter has arrived! ♥
I wrote out all my Christmas cards on Saturday. Something I really love to do. And what better time to do it than a snowy Saturday...in sweat pants. Perfection!
This weekend I also watched a lot of Food Network! (as usual : )
I was inspired to make a fudge recipe from The Pioneer Woman.
It came out so good!!!! I'll share the recipe this week.
Here's a sneak peek.....
John and Rob were at church while I made it. By the time they came home I had cleaned everything up, but the first thing John said to me was "mommy, you smell like chocolate chips". I took that as a major compliment! ♥ LOL
Tonight we headed over to my in laws for dinner to celebrate my father in laws birthday. We arrived a little early and my mother in law made us coffee in these cute little owl mugs!
Could you just..... ♥
I want to show you how beautifully my mother in law decorates for the holidays.
She truly has a knack for it.....
How cozy is this?
Isn't the mantle gorgeous?!
I could have made a meal on the appetizers, but it's a good thing I didn't. She made homemade pasta! It literally melts in your mouth!
This was followed by a roasted pork loin, potatoes, veggies, and of course dessert.
Two espressos later and I'm still awake, but I don't care. It was worth it! :)
A lovely end to a lovely weekend.
I'm afraid to say tomorrow is Monday as time marches on....
This weeks to-do list consists of a trip to the post office, wrapping presents, and organizing my wallet - which is currently a mess of papers and receipts!
I hope you all have a great day! Only two weeks till Christmas!
We are getting closer and closer....♥
