Oh the weather outside is frightful . . .

Winter is definitely here in Minnesota! This tree is in our front yard and you can see the snow on the ground and the tree, but what you can't see is how hard it's snowing right now. It's one of those winter days where you just want to snuggle in, grab a hot drink and do crafts!

Normally I would love a day like that and plan not to leave the house. However, today is the day that my daughter comes home for Christmas, so I have a 1-1/2 hour drive to the airport planned for late tonight. Her flight is scheduled to arrive at 11:45 p.m. from Oregon . . . and I'm very worried that the flight will be cancelled. That would be very bad news! I'm so excited to see her and even a one day delay would make me very sad.

I'm checking the flight (still showing as on time), watching the weather on the news and on-line, and looking out the window every minute!

Since it seems to be too much to ask to have a direct flight from Portland to Minneapolis she has to fly to Phoenix first, and there is a chance that she could end up staying there. The good news is that my cousin is in Phoenix visiting her in-laws for the holidays and she has graciously offered to host my daughter if need be. Thanks Jana!

Ok, I need to get back to the window and watch the snow fall. If you would keep your fingers crossed for me I would appreciate it very much!

You're welcome! I'm betting she's wishing she did get stuck here just a little bit after being in the cold up there! :) Merry Christmas!
