It snowed, again, here in Denver on Thursday. It’s become our Thursday routine…snow Wednesday evening into Thursday! My neighbors had a doctor’s appointment in Aurora (near my office) that day. It took them 2 hours to get there because the roads were so bad. Thank goodness I don’t work that day.
December Daily: Day 3. Then, it snowed again Friday night into Saturday morning. We still had to get up and get to the ice rink for practice, snow or shine! Thor is one of the dogs we inherited. He loves the snow. I mean, really loves it. He goes crazy playing in the snow. He will bark at the shovel when we are shoveling the snow. He loves you to throw snow in his face. He is a strange dog. The other dog (a poodle), Rocco, hates the snow. Total opposites in many ways.
“December Daily is an album project that documents the 25 days leading up to Christmas.” You can get full details at Ali Edwards. I have never been very good at keeping a daily record during December, but I like to document this very special season for my children’s future.
We drove to Cherry Creek (about a 45 minute drive) to order a Christmas gift for hubby…they were closed because of the snow! That made me very upset! I mean, if I can drive 45 minutes to their shop*, they can get there to be open their doors during their posted regular hours. It’s not like it was a blizzard today!
So, Alex and I went to Pier 1 to check out their holiday goodies instead. Afterwards, about an hour later, I called that shop, hoping that maybe someone was just late getting to there. They weren’t, but their phones were forwarded to their other shop (another 30 minutes away) and they ordered the item for me without paying for it first. That made me very happy! (*I am being all secretive about the details of the “shop” because on the off-chance that hubby actually reads this post, I don’t want to spoil the surprise.)
Cute right? My girls love hot chocolate in the winter, so they each got a special mug just for that sweet treat. The others are gifts. Pier 1 makes me happy too.
