Would you believe it snowed at my house all day on Saturday, yet it was just warm enough that it didn't amount to anything.

Oh sure, it was pretty.   And the dogs enjoyed eating it, followed by a fluffing out with the hair dryer.
And some of the kids in the hood threw snowballs and made snowmen, but with hour after hour of flakes, I expected far more accumulation no matter what the weatherman had been telling me for days and days.

Of course if that had happened, I wouldn't have been able to go visit my new grandson on Sunday.  I delivered roasted new potatoes with garlic & olive oil, sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, and sprinkled them with freshly grated parmesan cheese when I pulled them out of the oven.  They were one of the side dishes for my chicken casserole.  They hadn't eaten all day so as soon as I came in the door we were turning on the oven, and in less than an hour, a late lunch/early dinner was on the table, complete with crescent dinner rolls and more.

My mother beat me there by 5 minutes, so I let her hold Luke most of the afternoon.  Seemed only fair since I'd already been to see him twice at the hospital and this was her first visit.

Jackson played with my iPad for a little while, but for once thought playing with all his little cars and trucks was a better idea.  I held the baby for an hour, fed him a bottle and changed his clothes, but his eyes were open less than 5 minutes during my 3-hour visit.  Turns out he doesn't like being naked and screamed his little head off until I got his legs tucked into a clean onesie.  Putting on the t-shirt didn't help at all.  Nope, he had to feel fabric on his little legs before he was convinced he was dressed.  Note to self:  Go buy that boy some of those sweet little gowns with the drawstring bottom for quick changes! 

The girls are coming over Thursday night for a bit of fun in the studio so tonight I'll be putting away a few new CHA purchases that arrived last week.  And tomorrow I'll be planning something fun for us to do during the project portion of our meeting.  Ooh, can't wait.
