Since David is going nuts being cooped up in the house we went to the attic and dug out the doll house that was going to be my daughters but it never was finished. She was probably Miss Baby's age when we got it for her. David built it and never went any further. So now he has a project..........I dusted and cleaned out some old carpet we had put in years ago now he has a blank slate to have some fun.
We traveled to Boston for his weekly appointment today. It was a good appointment he has gained a little weight, they are very happy with his progress. It was a rainy foggy day so when we got home I lit the fireplace.
And baked some cookies, David found the recipe in the Old Farmers Almanac. They are very much like short bread cookies. Poppy seed raspberry filled cookies.
We are expecting some snow tonight 3-5 inches, booo I do not want to deal with snow this year.
My Christmas memory, I was 5 or 6 and was all tucked in bed on Christmas eve. Outside of my bedroom window was a porch roof. The wind was blowing and the moon was shining on the snow. All of a sudden there was a loud bang and I could see the out line of antlers in my window moving yikes. I was so scared Santa had landed on the porch roof by accident! and he was going to see me awake and LEAVE! I went under the covers and at some point fell asleep under there.( A tree fell in the yard and branches landed on the roof and were blowing back and forth so it looked like antlers shadows in the curtains and the scratching of the branch on the window and roof sounded like reindeer hooves. esp to a little girls imagination. And of course I didn't put it all together until I was much older)
We are watching old Christmas movies every night, tonight is The Preachers Wife with Loretta Young, David Niven and Carry Grant. If you haven't seen it you need to, such a sweet movie.
