It is STILL snowing, but much less than it was. We have about one foot total, past Lucy's stomach. She is swimming in it. It's really funny, actually, because she has to hop from step to step. We got some video of her hopping around, but I don't know if I will be able to post video. Maybe I'll do another photo story?

I won this meat thermometer in the raffle - I think the only one in my department to win?
But the managers gave us these....they were so pretty, little pieces of art and presents all in one. They were waiting on our desks when we returned after lunch.

Lucy was sad that she had to be kept out of the room, but you know how she would get. She's be nosing around, eating all the needles and knocking off ornaments. We still haven't let her in. Once we place her pen gate around the tree and clean up any stray pine needles, we'll let her be curious. I think she'll like it. I think she'll curl up in front of the tree chewing on her favorite toy and love being near her mama.
I'll post pictures of the tree soon, I promise! Good night!

Hi, my name is Molly and I have an addiction. To blogging. It's been three hours, maybe, since my last post and I have checked my blog about five times in between. Watching that little visitor number on my dashboard rise to what it is now...eight. It's not a lot, but it's enough to get me hooked. I'm addicted to writing on my blog, knowing that it's not like a diary under my mattress that will gather dust and no one will care if I miss a couple days. Maybe no one will care now if I don't type for a couple of days, but there's the chance they will. For now, that's enough.
I'm also addicted to Poland Springs liter water bottles with a screw-off top and buffalo chicken blue cheese pizza from Pasta Avest.
I included a picture of two balls I made for twins born to other close family friends. That's what gave us the idea. I am also going to try to make them an ornament for the baby. They just sent Owen one, which is especially poignant because shortly after my family moved to Connecticut, even before I was born, they sent Christmas ornaments. Every year, a small package would come that held three ceramic ornaments, usually children from pastoral scenes - a boy and two girls.

When it snows, the clouds seem to insulate the earth, the air is warmer, and as long as the wind isn't whipping, everything is peaceful.
