snow and high hells

Really I meant high heels but when I wrote this out I liked how it sounded.
It has the start to a good post.
There were many of us not quite prepared for the winter weather and even though we heard and watched all the news we still held out hope.
As I looked at my shoes I packed for our trip over to meet up with the kids for Christmas I thought you really did not believe the forcasters about this little snow thingy.
Here I was with silp on clogs and new tennis shoes.
Slip and slide baby- slip and slide.
I might as well have packed a pair of high hells- or high heels depends on what you think of the devil shoes we women like to wear.
The clogs I find are not good snow wear.
And new tennis shoes are slippery.
And mind you I had a pair of boots I left at home.
What was I thinking?
The snow over in Raleigh was a treat and kept us there another night in our high tower, 4th floor hotel room.
It was a great place to watch the traffic crawl by.
A good room, red wine and chocolate are the only way to end a holiday.
But all good things come to an end and the roads were clear enough to travel.
I hope you all had a great Christmas.
We enjoyed spending ours with family and soon that clay will be calling.
We have plans to fire that little kiln again soon.

And you know we are crazy about our kids all 4 of them.
But brother we are a bit crazy over the grand baby.
She is too small to understand this Chritmas thing, but I am sure she will figure it out soon.

Looks like a happy Grandpa there. And a pretty delighted grandson, too.

Enjoy her at this age! They grow up so fast - my oldest grand is 20... then 16, 14, and the youngest is 1 on New Years day! I guess it makes a difference when you have to RAISE the grandkids, that tends to change the relationship somewhat. She's a real cutie though!

She looks like she's got the gist of the whole "merry" part of Christmas! Happy New Year!

She is really photogenic and a little ham, how cute. Guess I'm not the only one who's crazy this time of year

I thought you were going to post something about getting there come hell or high water...or sloppy, snowy streets, but I guess slippery shoes will do. I need to live someplace where I can wear nothing but clogs.
Miss Mara is a wonderful, happy child. I love seeing her pix. That old fart holding her up ain't so bad either. XO Les
