...let it snow!

Hello. It is snowing in Chester County, PA and it looks beautiful. Last evening as we were making a Train Cake, the doorbell rang. It was our friend from the park stopping by to wish everyone a Happy Holiday! We all ate cake and drank mint tea. I sent her off with two stockings. I had never been to her home but she claimed that the fabric looked familiar. Hmmmm. She emailed me this morning to tell me that she has two pillows and a quilt made from the same fabric that her Mom had made her. Coincidence? I think not! Happy Divine Connections, again and again. Happy Birthday Sandy O'Hara!

Oh the first snowfall of the winter
Was a day that we all waited for
When it drifted to and fro'
Why you should've seen the snow
It was near seven feet or more
By the old barn door

Oh the first snowfall of the winter
What a joy for a boy to behold
In each house you'll find a sleigh
That was waiting for this day
And of course, down the road a hill
For each Jack and Jill

Every winter breeze that scurries
Sets the snowflakes up in flurries
It's the good old sentimental season when
Folks put runners on their surreys
And forget about their worries
When a man becomes a boy once again

Oh the first snowfall of the winter
Jingle bells bring us spells ever dear
Under wintry skies of gray
It was snowing all the day
And it showed no signs of stopping
Every kid with eyes of popping
Will soon be belly-whopping on his ear

On the first snowfall of the winter
Oh the first snowfall of the year
The first snow of the year
Is just about the best snow
Well I'll say any snow
Is a pretty good show...
