Weekend Happenings

Go 'Cuse! Our trip to the SU basketball game was great fun, especially since they soundly beat Cornell. The Orange had some great plays in the first half and were less impressive looking in the second half. In the photo below, notice that we all are wearing Syracuse Orange t-shirts. These were Christmas gifts from Corey and we all wore them proudly. The back of my shirt said, "Real Moms wear Orange". The weather cooperated and we had an easy drive.

This morning we got up to temps moving up towards the 50's, with the promise of wind
 and rain, and that is exactly what happened. Now those conditions are not good for snow fort survival and sure enough, we had melt-down. Oh, well, it was fun while it lasted!

Tonight I gathered the manly men of this house to help make the table decorations for Christmas dinner. We made S'Mores snowmen similar to the Christmas tree ornaments that are for sale. Each snowman has a name written on the graham cracker to mark the table place for our Christmas dinner companions. The boys did a great job. Now we will move on to decorating the Gingerbread house. 

Liz K. is due at our house in a few minutes. That should liven things up! She can tell us about their trip to Toronto.

Tomorrow, Christmas Eve, is going to be a very busy day so I probably will not make an entry until after Christmas. I wish you all a very Merry Christmas!

Hope all is well.
