Disappointed Children

Saturday was tree decorating day. Liam and Bill went to the market to do the tree hunting. I had to go to my market so the only thing that I did in regards to decorating the tree was to dig out the boxes of ornaments from the back shed. Bill put up the tree and did the lights so that the kids could decorate it. Usually there is a flurry of children throwing ornaments on the tree, but this year, apparently the boys were not really interested and so Mira decorated most of it all by herself. She did a really great job.

We were also suppose to get a big storm yesterday and last night and everyone thought that schools were going to be cancelled. Alas, it was not as bad as was predicted and the little darlings have to go to school today. I have to go to work. Bill was planning to stay home any way because he has a pile of exams to mark. At least he will be able to do it in relative quiet.

We got 60 cm. And the ploughs have not even taken a pass on our street yet. Today is definitely a work at home day.

We have a foot of snow in the Detroit area. So we either got your snow, or it just hasn't reached you yet. But you could always come and get it if you like?

Yeah, sorry about that. We got dumped on here. And then it rained on top of it. Today, there is a thick crust of ice on everything. It makes a nice crunching sound when walking.

Well, we got your cold: it didn't make it above freezing in Glasgow, Scotland, today. Didn't get your snow, though. ;)

We're really debating this year; fake or real? MIL gave us a fake tree last year and it was just so darn easy to put up and to take down but I miss the smell of real! And Sydney & Jevan so look forward to heading up the mountain with Daddy looking for that perfect tree :)
