Maryland, a winter wonderland?

The snow started Friday night around 10pm and I am sitting here now 8pm Saturday and it is still going strong. I don't think I have ever seen this much snow in my whole life. We woke up and there was about 8 inches and now about 2 feet. Scout loves the snow even when it is taller than he is. We spent all day hanging out with our cool neighbor Charlotte and watching Elf and building an igloo. So overall a productive day!

Carter Christmas

What beautiful ladies we are!

All I can say is Grandma Jean gives the best gifts! Thank you Grandma Jean.

Jim and Dottie hosted us on Saturday for a yummy dinner and a Grandma Jean Christmas celebration!

Dorothy played elf and delivered all the presents!

Joel got a lobster pot so he can cook at home and not just on Harbor Island! Great gift Patton!

Papa Carter looking very cool in his new shades!

To celebrate Christmas saturday morning we made breakfast starting with yummy bacon.

After Thanksgiving, while the Carters were still here we celebrated Christmas together.

Thanksgiving with the Carters

After dinner we played a little darts in the basement. Joel and I are trying to make a "game hallway" down stairs.

Grandma Jean brought a bonnet for me to wear and I already had the apron.

we actually all fit around a table in the living room. I didn't think it was going to happen but I was pleasantly surprised. I think everyone was relatively comfortable even though we were tightly seated.

Joel did a good job carving the turkey with a little coaching! Thanks Uncle Jim.

Joel and Jim also helped in the kitchen. Jim made some yummy brussel sprouts. I never knew that I could like BRUSSEL SPROUTS.

My first thanksgiving and the turkey looked pretty good!
