BRRRR....Baby it's cold outside!

Windchill today is -15 or so. I finally got back this afternoon from my parent's house. There was a blizzard warning yesterday, so Boo and I stayed over. We were to have come home from Wisconsin yesterday but decided not to chance it.

It's nice to go to Mom's and be babied! My mom is a great cook, so there was no need to do that. I did make it out to their mall to get some shopping done, sas Boo. That was nice. We watched old Jodi Foster movies and played Five Crown. Sigh...it was good to be home.

Grandma and Grandpa adore Grant. You'd think with SO many grandchildren....but they love him and he loves them. They taught him how to play "Dot Dominos" (as opposed to Car's Dominos), they played Go Fish and taught him War. Grandma has more cookies than a bakery....he was in heaven!

Today it's back home and back to reality. Shopping, cleaning, wrapping...but that extra day was a nice break for me.

I agree, it's great to be babied by mom (and dad) every once in a while! Enjoy the holidays! *ICLW*

It is cool here today in Australia and rainy - normally quite hot.

Mums are so good at mothering us big mothers.

Merry Christmas

We had a heat wave yesterday, it hit 12 degrees! I forgot what the windchill was.

Enjoy spending time with your family.

Have a wonderful holiday.
