It snowed at our house over the weekend. For real! They said on the news that this is the 3rd time in 5 years that we've gotten our first snow on December 5th but I don't think that it really stuck the first 2 times. This time it did and I loved it.
It was easy to love it since I didn't have too much to do out of the house. I did a few early errands before it got really bad because we couldn't have a birthday party without balloons and blowers and silly hats. I also went out for my mani-pedi because that's really important too. Snow or no snow I have my priorities.
Mostly I stayed in and baked birthday cake and knit while I watched the snow fall... all. day. long. It was great. I watched the snow cover our nasty straw excuse for a lawn and I watched it pile up on the deck and in the trees. By nightfall when DQ's friends arrived there was a pristine blanket of snow everywhere and the parents were all thankful that they didn't have to come back to pick their girls up until morning because the roads got pretty slick.
Chinese food was eaten and those girls got loud. They watched stuff on Y**T*be loudly. They played Apples to Apples loudly. They ate loudly. They watched movies loudly. You get the picture. It was all good though because there was no drama. I love a drama free party.
There were gifts of course but this one was my favorite. One of her best friends brought a blank, white, hoodie and fabric markers and had all the girls get together and doodle on it. There are silly things, Twilight things, and notes about inside jokes and school stuff. It was signed by all the girls at the party and it is the closest thing to wrapping yourself in the love of your friends.
Can you guess what she wore to school today?
