Friendly Neighbors and Another Snow Day?

Last night as I was unpacking boxes, the doorbell rang. I wasn't expecting anyone and when I looked outside there were no vehicles in the driveway. At first I though I was just hearing things or thought maybe it was just on tv but I opened the door and there stood a man and a woman who introduced themselves and said they lived across the street. In their hands was a plate full of chirstmas goodies. I was pleasantly surprised as I thought noone did this anymore. We were sure to wish them a Merry Christmas as they began to head back home. I think this weekend the kids and I will make some Christmas goodies to take to the neighbors and the mailman.
When the alarm went off this morning I immediately turned on the tv to see if there was a two hour delay as we had gotten more snow last night. Sure enough there was. I happily went back to bed and reset the alarm for eight o'clock. The kids awoke just a few minutes before the alarm went off and we got up and had some breakfast. I again turned the tv on and still a two hour delay. I started to get the girls dressed and walked back into the living room to see that school had been cancelled. I told the girls they didn't have to be in a hurry to get ready because we weren't going anywhere. Emmaleigh began crying because that meant that they wouldnt have their Christmas program.

  1. Awwww. Mimi. Does that mean they won't have it at all? Boo. :(

    I love that they brought you cookies! When I first moved in to this apartment, my neighbors came over to welcome us. California is notoriously friendly. Like, it's the people equivalent to a happy dog, I swear. It always catches me off guard, too.
