The First Snow

We woke up this morning to a few inches of snow. It is the first time Peanut Butter has grasped the concept of it. We didn't play a whole lot outside last year in the snow. I don't do cold very well anymore. I did have to shovel though and of course it was the wet heavy snow.

I have to go back to work tomorrow for 2 days and then I have Thursday and Friday off. I'm curious to see if there are any deals that will make me really want to get out there on Friday. I am afraid what is going to happen when I drop her off at daycare tomorrow. I have a feeling I will be crying myself when I leave. It is usually hard for me to drop her off, but with my being off for a week this could potentially be hell.

Since we did get snow, I had to go get Miss PB a pair of boots to play outside at daycare tomorrow. I think everyone had the same idea wait til the first snow and have to get a pair. I did, however, already buy snowpants. Of course PB wanted the Disney Princess boots, but that wasn't happening. Two of the pairs I wanted were out of her size, so I ended up with a pair of carters. Some how I cannot get that girl's foot inside a pair of boots. She did walk away from Kohls with some princess slippers.

And guess what? I am going to Madrid for a weekend in December with my Mom. She needed to rack up some miles before the end of the year. J said he would take off work to take care of PB. I am so excited. Hopefully I can learn some spanish before then. Christmas gifts could be interesting, I just know the boy wants bull fighting outfit.

I am so jealous I can hardly stand it. That is just so exciting! I have always wanted to go to Spain. My sister lived there for a time and she loved it. :)

I never go out on Black Friday. It is just not worth it to me. We don't buy hugely expensive gifts for the boys (yet) or ourselves so there really is no need.

That's an impressive first snow!
Yay for Madrid! That's a nice treat to look forward to :)

Oh, I do not miss the days of trying to shove feet into shoes, I can't imagine boots! I hope transitioning back into work goes well for the both of you. :hug:

Madrid sounds like a blast. You are gonna have so much fun! I can't wait to see the pictures.

First of all, Happy (belated) Thanksgiving.

Second, I am so stinkin' jealous you are heading to Madrid. I have always wanted to go. You are only going for a weekend?

And last, we bought the same Carter's boots. Reyna loves them b/c of the lights. Does PB?
