Well wouldn't you know we'd get around to our Christmas shopping on the coldest dang day we've had so far this winter. And technically "winter" hasn't even arrived yet. I would say the wind chill was a tad bit "chilly" right around 10 to 15 below zero depending on the gusts.
But we did get our shopping done ~ and we did good! I forsee a lot of happy little faces again this year. Our Grandkids recieved their letters from Santa today. The six year old was so excited she threw her head back as she was reading her letter and exclaimed "Mrs. Claus loves the same kind of fudge as I do ~ Chocolate mint, and Santa said I should look for some under my tree!"
Now I have to ask, How exciting is that? ~ she has a personal connection with the big fella's wife. They are at the wonderful ages that make Christmas so exciting. Their eyes just sparkle and their voices echo in ranges of squeals and giggling. With camera in hand - her comes Grandma. I can hardly wait!
