Let it snow

Brrrrrr - we can feel the cold even here in Las Vegas. It snowed almost all day, so much that it stuck. Now this really puts me in the Christmas spirit. And it's supposed to continue all week. Tomorrow morning will be difficult driving on the ice. My SUV is rear wheel drive (a pain in the snow) and I'll be dealing with people who don't know how to drive in the snow. I'm sure it will be pure chaos.

Thanksgiving in Utah

Thanksgiving was so wonderful. I drove up to Utah to spend time with family. This year was with my mom. We had fun preparing the meal with all the traditional foods. We were lucky enough to get Grandma this year. It is so nice to spend time with her, if not for her benefit, for mine. Grandmas just have a way of loving you no matter what. And I always remember the times when I was younger and staying at her house.
Mom got a quilt ready for us to tie. She found these 2 green sheets and we used brown yarn to tie with. It turned out quite nice and mom will donate it to the homeless shelter. It filled the entire living room the entire day, but we finished it! It's so fun to be with Gary and Ashley.
