The Mountains, Elves, and Snowmen!

This weekend Jerry and I went to my parents house in the mountains. It was a fun weekend. I went through the garage to go outside.... Look what I found hiding over by the side of the garage. I think Santa must be somewhere in those mountains because I'm sure these were some of his elves playing possum. They were so very still.

We always get to relax, live life a little slower, we welcome the slower pace. Saturday morning it started to snow very lightly. It was so light you had to see the mini flakes falling because the melted before they hit the ground. For something to do we decided to go to the movies. We saw Australia. I thought it was a really good movie, especially since the critics didn't really give it good reviews! Afterwards we went to the local casino . We had dinner then donated a few dollars to the Indians...umm, OK I lost, but only $10.00! Gotta love those penny machines! When we got home after our day out it had hailed a little. The hail looks like DOTS, you know, that cute ice cream in the little balls?.... or those little styrofoam balls inside of cheap stuffed animals.
When we got up this morning the temperature was in the low 20's and the snow/hail was still there. Look what else I found this morning just before we left to come home.....

Ok. I found the snow/hail on the back of the truck and fashioned this little guy , isn't he so cute?

Dad and Kackie, thanks for the weekend. We had a great time! Oh... and as we drove away I think I saw that little guy waving bye and saying don't you cry, I'll be back again someday!

I wish we could have gone with you this weekend. It would have been so much fun. I like your snowman...even the little hat is just perfect for your little friend! Wouldn't it be so much fun if this winter storm we are experiencing dropped some snow so he could have come to my house...hmmmm, we'd have to fashion his some sort of other hat though! Cross your fingers!!!
