Before Thanksgiving Day!!

Snow before Thanksgiving!!!

Look what we woke up to this morning!!!!  Snow before Thanksgiving!!!  I am racking my brains but I honestly can't remember a time when we've had snow sticking  before the great Day!!  I've lived here in the Puget Sound area for about 32 years so I may have missed a year - but I honestly don't recall.  And every flake is sticking too - at 28* and the thermometer dropping throughout the day!  This will not be a long snow event but here in Western Washington any flake that falls is an adventure!  With our hills and valleys and curvy roads people get pretty emotional about the whole idea.  As for me - my pantry is stocked - the kiddos have new mittens and the fireplace is set so we are enjoying every minute!!!  And I confess - with this wintry weather even though it's a tad early we've been listening to Christmas music and loving it!!

On the maternity front I am excited to find several days in a row where I have felt pretty good!!  I am able to bear the whole food issue without feeling like a bad case of the stomach flu has hit!!  Yay!!!  And what better timing than right before the season of feasting :0)!!!

God is so good and I am reflecting on all the things I have to be thankful for (I have to start now - one day isn't long enough :0)!!)

Wow! Snow this early. I can definitely say that I don't recall snow ever before Thanksgiving. In fact, it's rare to have snow period here in the Deep South of Louisiana even though we have had it two years in a row the past two years. It will be amazing if we see any this year for sure :)

Glad you are feeling well with this pregnancy! Does help to feel good during the feasting : Me, I'm afraid I'm going to enjoy it too much because I love holiday foods. Pregnancy for me at this time of the year always means extra unnecessary pounds ;)

We're suppose to get some Wed. Think you'll be done with it by then?
