White Christmas Snow, Outdoor Pics,& Homecoming

Good morning. We woke up this morning to a pretty white scene. It appears that at this point we just might have that white Christmas we all think about. It is snowing lightly still and I wish I could stay inside, stitch, bake, read my Mercantile Gatherings magazine, be lazy....but DS has a basketball game we need to head out to. I took my outdoor pics last week, but I had to go do them again this morning because it just looks more festive with the pretty blanket of snow accenting them. Enjoy!!

Last night was our high school's last Homecoming/basketball game to be played in our old school. We are moving into a beautiful new K-12 building right after Christmas. I think it would have been much neater to have had the ceremony in the new school, but some people are way too sentimental about things and they had it last night. Oh, well. Anyway, our oldest DD was sophomore class attendant. I would be amiss if I didn't share some photos of her fun evening.

Well, I'm off to do a little something productive before the basketball game. Maybe I'll have some free time later to do the fun things.

Keep your wonderful Christmas pics coming. I have so enjoyed looking at them and getting inspired. Know that I have seen them but have kept my comment posting to a minimum so I can look at as many as possible. Everything looks great.

Take care and have a wonderful weekend.

    I loved looking at your snow covered decorations - how lovely and festive.

    Your daughter is gorgeous and I can kind of favor the idea of the homecoming/game at the old school....I'm sort of a sentimentalist at heart too.

    Thanks so much for always showing up on my blog with wonderful comments.

    Hugs, Karen
