It is beginning to look a lot like Christmas


it has been cold here.
dang cold.
ok, cold for california.
so cold my house got down to 56 degrees!
so cold my husband has been building fires like crazy.
so cold that my husband got up multiple times throughout the night to keep the fire stoked last night.

i am sure that this snow is nothing compared to states that actually get real snow.
life shuts down here in California.
schools shut down.
no one knows quite what to do with snow.

i guess the kids figured out quick what to do with it.
make snowballs and chuck them at each other.
all the snow gear came out this morning.

my kids left in scarves, mittens and hats.

when i drove by the school today even the cool junior highers were making snowmen with all the white stuff on the ground.

i am just worried about all the mandarins that are still on the trees here.
i hope that they are not all lost.
charles was bummed that school wasn't canceled.
i am off to make some yummy soup!
