After a near melt down from the cold weather on sunday, we finally had heat. The furnace guy predicted the blower will probably go out next. After a few decades things can go wrong.

It is snowing again and I believe my snow guy has retired. At least it will be a white Christmas. I would settle for a mildly white Christmas myself. After spending a couple years in Florida I do appreciate a little dusting.

My family Christmas celebration is this weekend. We will be going to Mom's house. The kids have new clothes. The boys got matching shirts and ties. Charles gray shirt and blue tie, Danny blue shirt and gray tie. The ties are a new zipper tie. You don't untie them, it uses a zipper in the skinny end to loosen and tighten the tie. You can get the idea from this site. http://www.absoluteties.com/ziclonti.html

Alex got a gray belted sweater and  gray plaid leggings. The sweater came with this tacky gold tone belt that looks like it should be hanging a ceiling lamp and two gold tone buttons. I really didn't like the gold with the gray so I changed the buttons with some gray buttons and bought a silver link belt that actually looks like it is supposed to be a belt.

I will likely wear a black and gray fair isle sweater. Something simple. When the kids were little I used to have the boys wear sweaters and dress shirts and Alex with a nice dress and cardi. Even in Texas they wore sweater vests. I guess guy I couldn't find anything at Walmart.
