Cookies, sledding, hot chocolate, decorations and a warm fire!

That is how the usual granddaughter and I spent our day. It started with baking cookies to take to my daughter's for Thanksgiving dinner tomorrow. M&M cookies.....mmmmmm!

We quickly followed it with a round of sledding in the back yard. Well, she went sledding and I and the dog watched and threw some snowballs at her. When she was finally soaked all the way through her snowpants she was ready to call it quits and come in for some hot chocolate. Heaven forbid she should fall asleep while snuggled in under a warm fleece blanket so she just had to have me get the Christmas decorations out because the movement of her helping to unpack them would wake her and a nap would then be out of the question!

I must say that the house does look very festive with all the jolly snowmen sitting around smiling at us and the candles offer their own ambiance.

Our dinner is now over and that mess is cleared up and it is now time to get her in the tub so she will be all clean and shiny bright for the short jaunt to my daughter's house. I think I will then build us a fire......maybe we will even roast some marshmallows!

Happy Thanksgiving to each and every one of you and God Bless!

Martie,
Sounds like you had a wonderful time with your granddaughter. Wish I was there to go play in the snow and have hot chocolate. Two of my favorite things.

All the best to you. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Roast marshmallows... don't suppose there was a Hershey bar and graham crackers involved? :-)

Not this time tirithien, didn't have any Hershey bars in the house and since we were (and still are) under a Winter Storm Warning I didn't want to venture out on the ice covered roads. Maybe next time....or should I wait for a visit from you and your sweetie?

Sounds like it was a wonderful day! The title of your post is similar to what our day will be like tomorrow as it's decorating the tree day! :)
