Family gifts wrapped and patiently waiting for the trip 'over the river and through the woods' to grandma's house.
(Check out the tree on the left--this is the 'after' picture. The furry children started climbing it when we turned off the lights and went to Waseca a couple of weeks ago, and haven't stopped exploring it!)
This is how it looked this morning when we woke up. We'd had 8-10 inches of new snow, but it was 35 degrees, so it was wet and a little slushy. The 'blizzard' came about 11:30am, with wicked wind and snow, through the afternoon. It's calmed down now, but has snowed again and the temperature has dropped to 20 degrees.
