Baby, It's Cold Outside!

With a windchill in the teens today, I figured it was a good time to clean the house and update the old blog. The house will never be clean, so I took a blog break! That's at least something I can accomplish!

The Christmas elf has been baking! The cookies in the above picture were GREAT! They had peanut butter in the middle and chocolate on the outside. They made a small batch and that was probably a good thing!
These are also fabulous cookies that the Christmas Cookie Elf makes. I sure hope Santa brings jeans in a bigger size this year!

Our Christmas parade was this weekend. It was such a dreary day! I thought nobody would show. We normally have a huge parade, but this year it was kind of sparse. We live close to the parade route and have gotten there so early in years past to just stand and freeze. This year we decided to leave a little later and missed some of it! Bummer! I guess the marchers were cold and wanted to get the show on the road! The sun did peek out for a short while and made the parade bearable.

We had a little something for everybody.

Big old flashy cars with flames!

Tiny new cars with three wheels.

Sheep! Perfect for the knitter!

Jeeps for the Army and WWII buffs.
That reminded us to go by the memorial at the park before we headed for home.

The town puts wreaths on the tributes. Makes it even more special than usual.

And then, on the walk home, the Christmas cookie elf/photographer/knitter got a little distracted and wanted to follow the sheep home. What am I going to do with that girl????

Thanks for your input regarding our dental dilemma. L has a post-op appointment on Wednesday. That will be his last visit with that dentist.

Sheep! That's my kind of parade LOL! Looks like you had fun -- and probably even walked off some calories from those yummy cookies!
