The Pinke Christmas tree…
(with annoying cords, hanging out from the side of it that need to be adjusted but still we love it)
When Hunter was well enough to come downstairs last night and watch the last hour of “It’s a Wonderful Life” with Nathan and me, he said “Hey that was suppose to be my job”, referring to decorating the tree. Next year we will aim to all be healthy on the same day, on a blizzardy day with a cozy fire burning in the fireplace and all decorate the tree together. A memory waiting to happen.
The blizzard did hit. Sub zero temperatures and wind chills. Enough snow for Nathan to get out the snow blower this afternoon. The wind is still blowing now. Hunter is hopeful school will be delayed two hours or cancelled all together tomorrow. Two hours late is most likely for buses to get out for the “country kids” as Hunter refers to them. Farm kids. He is such a city kid…in a town of 1200 people. He gave me instruction to turn off his alarm before it goes off if school is delayed so he can sleep in until 8AM.
