Morning Surprise

I woke up this morning (5:30 AM) and it was dark outside and it was dark inside. I tried to turn my TV on but it wouldn't work. So I got up and tried to turn my bedroom light on. It didn't work. Then I opened my bedroom door and tried to turn the hall light on. It didn't work. I tried every darn light in the house and not one of them would work!! So I sat on the couch in the living room, in the dark, just plain dumbfounded. Mom got up and was using a flashlight to look for me. When she found me, she told me the lights were broken (no power). Dad got up and built a fire in the fireplace while Mom got me a blanket (we have electric heat) and then put out our battery powered lanterns. It was nice just sitting there watching the fire and the shadows. Dad however, was going crazy. He couldn't use his computer, he couldn't watch TV, he was totally lost! This was all quite a surprise this morning. But the BEST surprise was when it got light enough to see outside, we saw SNOW, lots of SNOW!!!

Last night we went to our Ward Christmas party at Church. I had a great time, and I was excited and happy because I got to see Santa Clause! After all the little kids had their turn, I got to sit on Santa's lap. He likes me and I really like him.

All my favorite Christmas decorations are up, my beloved Christmas tree is up, my TV and all the lights work, and there is much SNOW outside. Ah yes . . . It's beginning to look a LOT like Christmas around here FINALLY!

Uhh . . . let me think a minute, balloons, string, tape, you know, all the good stuff.
