Here’s the first thing my little niece said when she got downstairs this morning:
“OOOOOHHHHHHHH MYYYYYYYYYYYY GAAAAAAAWWWWWWWWWSH.
… Can we go outside and play in the snow?”
Ok, rewind (like in the those movies where they start by showing you the end of the movie, and then they rewind to the beginning, to show you how all the characters wound up getting there… except nowhere near as interesting or climactic). Yeah, sooo… here’s what happened this weekend:
We had the best Christmas ever. That’s what happened. My 6-yr-old niece, almost 4-yr-old nephew, my older sister, her husband, my little brother (he’s 25), my honey, and my folks all got together and spent the Christmas holiday in one single house.
And now we’re all snowed in. So, we’re ALL WORKING FROM HOME. (Let’s just pray the heat stays on, and the internet doesn’t conk out. Side note: the internet has failed us for lesser reasons, like rain, and brisk winds, and squirrels, so cross your fingers.) By the way, this home we’re stranded in? It’s our folks’ home. So they love it, and they can’t get enough of it. :)
Here’s the cute part: We’re all working on our computers and laptops, and talking on our cell phones, so my niece decided to get in on the action and created her very own apple laptop computer, and her very own cell phone. You should see these things. They are as close to a real laptop and a real cell phone as paper and crayons can get. Spitting images. Kids are awesome.
Anyway, the good news about this snowed in deal is that we’ve got a crapload of leftovers to nosh on until the approximately 2 feet of snow that surrounds our abode begins to clear/melt away. I’d say we’re stuck here for no more than 4 days, max. Thank goodness for country homes and their multiple bathrooms.
It’s time to move on to the good news I’ve got for you today. Oh, it’s nothing, really… just a supertastic printable freebie for that fabulous New Year’s Eve partay you’ve been planning! These are some of the most stylish and simplest (two key words for great design, imo) place cards you will ever find for your dinner table this weekend, and I highly recommend puttin’ these babies to use. They were designed by the absolutely stupendous Jen of Blush Printables, and she’s crafted them up exclusively for Knotty readers! Thanks, Jen! They’re absolutely gorgeous.
