Ho, ho, ho!

Well, it's officially two months until Christmas now . . . not that anybody's counting LOL I absolutely LOVE Christmas - it's my all-time favourite holiday (well, tied with my birthday, 'cause birthdays are fun). I really enjoy buying gifts for people, and who doesn't enjoy getting gifts? Scrooge, maybe.

How fitting, then, that today was our first official snowfall. When I got up this morning, there was a dusting of snow on the ground. Maybe 1cm, if that much. I don't know how long it'll stay, what with the sun shining down on it. The dogs were pretty frisky, especially Jack, who doesn't really have snow experience. He ran around like a fool, trying to figure out this white stuff that was sticking to his feet. Grace, ever the princess, tried to convince me that her feet were cold (at -5? I don't think so) and Farley just went on his business as usual.

The neighborhood kids are having a blast, trying to throw snowballs and build snowmen. It'll be a while until we have enough snow for that (Mother Nature willing, of course), but it's fun to watch anyhow.

Keep all that white stuff up there. We havnen't had any yet and I'm fine with that (I love Christmas but hate snow :P ).
