Well, we made it downtown yesterday via the max train and were treated to nearly empty stores and Santa all to ourselves. Seriously, we were it. It was almost funny to see how long we could make the poor guy come up with things to talk with the kids about. The snow is expected to keep falling and the kids are loving it. An igloo adorns our front yard and we went sledding down dead mans hill late last night. The snow has slowed our pace and I am looking forward to more slow days and games of gin at night! Happy Holidays!
