Another Birthday Party

It seems like all the grandchildren were born before Christmas.  There has been one Birthday party after another.  One family always likes to have a pinata for the kids.  They have great fun swinging at it and trying to break it open.  And then they each get a bag to pick up the candy.  There is a big scramble to see who can pick up the most.  There is a lot of fun and laughter among both the kids and the adults.

Weather Report

Sounds like we are in for a good old fashioned blizzard by Thursday.  It has been moving in on us from the West.  They have even named it.  That's something new I think.  We could get 6" of snow and up but so far, all the snows have missed us.  It's like we are sitting in a shelter and it all goes around.  Minnesota and Wisconsin have gotten our share and this could stay farther south.  You never know till it gets here.  We have been having little "corn snow" as the Norwegians call it.  I call it popcorn snow :0)  Little tiny pebbles covering everything, but it is melting on the grass and roads. Have to watch out for slippery decks on our homes here.

3rd Birthday Cake

Great grandson turned 3 a bit ago.  What a cake he had.  Can you believe that his Dad did all the decorating.  It was a neat train and a couple of cars.   Very colorful and a good chocolate cake.  He was very pleased with his birthday cake and wanted me to come and have some.  So I did go over and had cake and ice cream with him.  He's growing up so fast.

Big Christmas Tree

Our good friends in Arizona got a 10 ft Christmas tree.  He said their ceiling is 12 ft high so it almost reaches the ceiling.  We used to live in California.  It seems where people don't have snow, they decorate even more than those that do have snow.  It always was heavily decorated and we had so much fun putting up lots of lights around our house roof.  Always had a great tree too.  Enjoyed Christmas very much in a warm climate.
