Well, it looks like we might actually have a white Christmas this year. That hasn't happened in, probably, over ten years! We've been white for about three weeks already, and it will hopefully stay another week. This is what the yard was looking like last week while it was snowing. It hasn't snowed for a few days, so the bushes and trees are pretty bare, but the ground is just as white.
With only days left before Christmas, we're trying to get everything finished up (presents and all) and get ready for the big weekend. Not a year, since we moved to Ohio, has gone by that certain friends haven't come over on Christmas weekend for a good old-fashioned Cuban dinner. The grand occasion is going to happen on Sunday, so we're going to get all the good dishes down and pull out the special table cloths. Gramma and Grampa just sent a huge box of plantains and that good stuff, so we're about ready! Got to go . . .
