First, was the Christmas food. I pulled out my pizzelle maker that I had bought when the local hardware store close a couple years ago. I'd never used it and decided with my SIL coming and knowing how much she loves caonoli's that now would be the time to give it a try.
I forgot to take pictures of them when they were filled with the chocolate chip cream filling, and they disappeared so quickly, you know they were good!
The holiday and family visits would not be complete without a backyard game of football! Here in TN we can do this at Christmas... back in MD and VA we we did it after Thanksgiving dinner.
There is the 10 hour drive to MD to visit and catch-up with the in-laws while watching the game!..... and a must-do stop for a Maryland crab fix.
Then there was the post new year deep freeze and the snow... all 1inch of it! that closed the schools for FOUR days until the icy roads were cleared and safe for buses. We were able to purchase a saucer and had some driveway fun!
A great way to start the new year!...when you are 4!
