If I'm willing to murder my own language for a corny pun - why not someone else's?
This morning I managed to persuade E5N1 and Exile #4 into attempting some backyard sledding. E5N1 didn't stay out for long, but Exile #4 and I had a really good time. It probably looked something like this (although that was Exile #3 nearly a year ago).
Around lunchtime it started to snow - with promises of sleet (ice pellets) and freezing rain to follow. It was of course, time for me to get on the road - to take Exile #3 and Exile #4 to a Lucia party organised by our Swedish friend - whether the cookie cutting and decorating and pizza are the traditional way to celebrate is not clear - but it was fun. We went straight on from there to our church gathering, which started early with a meal - including many more cookies. By the time we were finished it felt like the girls had been decorating and eating cookies all day. E5N1 managed to put a few away too. The Christmas healthy-eating season is upon us.
