This was supposed to be a really fun and packed weekend for us but in typical New England fashion the weather had a little something to say about that. Friday night's office dinner party was cancelled. Sunday's Christmas family lunch was cancelled. And we barely made it to our Saturday night holiday party. The snow just kept coming! But it was cozy nonetheless, and we enjoyed finishing the wrapping and decorating and I managed to make the sugared pecans and some banana bread. Poor Ryan got stuck with the shoveling... perhaps this is why I still think the snow is beautiful!
