What a Great Day!

We had such a beautiful snow today, soft, big flakes and lots of it. Being a girl from the South Carolina coast, I love to see it snow. Wes and I were out walking around in it by 7:30 this morning. We had a fire in the fireplace, baked oatmeal raisin cookies, then made corn and black bean soup with cornbread and watched the Presidential festivities. How emotional was that?! I was teary eyed for most of the day. I am just SO PROUD of that man and this country for electing him! No school tomorrow so it feels like we are just extending our Christmas holidays.Gerry has to shoot the Duke basketball game tonight, but I'm settling in to watch the inaugural balls. The Obamas sure have some stamina. I'm tired from just watching all they did today!

Nice picture. I think you got quite a bit more than we did. It was nice, though.

It was a very moving day and I enjoyed what I saw of the inaugural coverage.

it was a good day- and how wonderful you could share it with your daughter- making memories.

It was indeed a great day, Tracey. We were on the Mall for the event, back by the Washington Monument but with a great view of the Capitol. I'll be putting some photos on the blog tomorrow.

Hollis: I can't wait to hear about your trip, I thought about you guys out there in the cold!

It was a good day, Tracey. A cold day, but a good one. The photos are up on the blog.
