Busy Internet!!

I tried to upload more pics of vignettes and the snow,,,but apparently the internet is swamped!!

Shopping? Weather checks? You name it!! More later. Going to a local concert at the Belle Chapel tonight where a family I know is perfoming. The St. Clair children sing like angels and play music to boot!! Bringing my camera,,,,,only wish that you could all HEAR the music and the instruments. It is glorious and such an inspiration for the Christmas Season!

Stay warm and thankful for heat, WATER, family and friends good health!

Again,,,,,,awesome food and oh yeah! Another Dice game!!! Did I mention I have some of the most creative friends????????? Deb Bock (of Kusler's and her own creative endeavors and event planning) gave me the cutest hostest gift with Vintage ornaments. THEN I scored again because I managed to Steal her ornament from Johanna- of Johanna's Jewlers, Snohomish, so I got both of her lovely creations.

Zoe out did herself with awesome desserts and a killer salad,,,,,,,,of course Zoe never does anything half way!!! ( I asked her to bring a few tea lights and she brought enough to light up all of Snohomish.)

Anyway,,,,,,a great couple of days,,,,,,,,,can you say awesome leftovers for dinner tonight! Let the snow fall where it may!!
