Two Amigos, One to Go
So now there's one pair left to go for the Oldest One. I'm hoping I have enough yarn, but he prefers shorter cuffs, so fingers crossed!

Well, the kids didn't get a snow day yesterday, but they did today! It stopped snowing around 10am or shortly after. It took me about 15 minutes to get Bessie to run (the snowblower). She's 10-11 years old, and the poor girl has never had an oil change, tune up, nothing, but she never lets me down! She only had to make an appearance once last winter and once the winter before. This was her first appearance this winter. Snow is in the forecast again for Tuesday (we've had it too good, now we'll pay!). Once we get a week or so with no snow in the forecast I will get her serviced.
We got our first real snowfall of the season last night, probably 6" I would guestimate. Up til now we've only had a light dusting of snow, nothing more, never enough to cover the grass. (At least not right in town - some of the outlying communities have gotten enough snow to cover the ground.) However, it stopped just before midnight, the temperatures got above 0C, the main roads were cleared, and the kids had school. Mine we quite mad they didn't get a storm day yet!
Another birthday this week, the Littlest One has entered the double digits -- 10! He got money, of course, and we got him this neat game. The duck charges off the gun, then it flaps its wings and flies around, and you have to use the gun to shoot it three times with an infrared beam to make it stop. It only keeps the charge for about 30-40 seconds, but it's kind of cool.
FO count for 2012 was even lower than 2011! Must do better in 2013.
I hope that everyone had a safe and happy New Year`s Eve last night.
