Wednesday Weekend Windup {Spreading the Cheer}

Wow!  I can't believe that it is Wednesday already! This week has a been a bit interesting here with a day off of school on Monday and some snow. I am not normally a snow person. However, I have to say that I enjoyed the snow on Monday. My daughter and I were out in it for a bit and it seemed like a Winter Wonderland! I am hoping for a few more dustings like that--nothing too heavy--just pretty snow!

Holiday events are in full gear this weekend. Here is a look at our picks:
