Winter is here...

Nancy, Hoop , and Karen after shopping and lunch at Historic Properties. Hoop wins the prize for getting the most accomplished! The weather changed to winter overnight and it was a gloriously festive feeling to have the snow swirling around us.
The gingerbread church outside the restaurant in the Hotel...

The weekend was a wonderful time full of MUCH laughter as usual, almost wet pants in the hallways of the hotel, being followed by strange men speaking french to us on their way to a party while we were wearing our bathrobes on the way back to the room after a time at the pool, (seems that is a regular occurance in one form or another), feeling awkward on the elevator full of other people as we stifle fits of laughter, waiting forty-five minutes to get into the thai restaurant for supper because we all know it is the best, almost falling asleep at the table waiting for our food as it was past our bedtimes, sitting in the piano bar not listening to the piano because it was so late but feeling like we should at least have a glass of wine, managing just barely to keep our heads off the table, hanging out in our jammies while having super "deep" conversations, watching home reno shows on tv wondering why people spend so much on fixer uppers, enjoying the highest pressured exfoliating shower ever, laughing over attempted chopstick use while eating Japanese food, Nancy finally giving up and me retrieving her a fork, scamming leftover desserts from the christmas party at the church for a snack that didn't get eaten until we got up this morning, wine in our jammies in bed, getting lost looking for Dartmouth Crossing but feeling so fabulous when we got it all sorted out, wondering what the big deal is about the Crossing afterall, snow, snow, and more snow, burning ourselves in the hot tub, getting crowded out of the hot tub by a huge family, a wonderful last breakfast together this morning, and hugs as we said good-bye.

that sounds great!
we have snow here as well, very early for.
that gingerbread looks amazing, i do one with the kids, using a kit, but it looks more like an outhouse or a shack you'd find in the woods than a house, but it's still fun to do and eat. this year i found a train kit that i'm hoping glues together easier than the house.
