Moon Boots

This is what the outside or my house looked like Sunday Morning!! I kept looking out WISHING Ian would hurry home so we could go and play! LOL The snow is still a novelty for us being from the south and all.

(yes, those are pj bottoms :-p)

Do you see all those tracks? LOL We ran around the front TRYING not to fall. Hard to do in about 7 inches of snow. Next time we are going to go sledding at the elementary school where there’s a REALLY big hill! I hope we don’t break anything.

I don’t know what I was doing here… but it LOOKS like I was having fun, don’t it?!

See those boots?! I hope you all *KNOW* me well enough to know that I would NEVER in a million lifetimes make such a fashion Fauxpas! This is how I can to acquire the “moon boots”.
Last year was my 1st WINTER winter. So I was telling my coworkers how we did NOT have snow and ice in New Orleans, and how on the RARE act of GOD we did get some ice or sleet the city SHUT DOWN, PERIOD! So I came to work the next day to find this HUMONGOUS box on my desk. In it, the “Air Walk Moon Boots” along with a card that said “Something to help you get around in the snow”. It was quite the gag gift, but turned out to be pretty useful for me and Ian. lol They are so damn big, we both can fit them, they are water proof, and fleece lined. So they are now the taking out the trash boot, shoveling snow boots, and PLAYING in the snow boots! LOL

When the fun and games were done, I went inside and made a bag. It’s big enough to carry 2 magazines, a bag of cookies, and 3 or 4 small books, and my wallet… I didn’t/don’t feel like measuring the length and width. It’s made out of 1/2 yard of Genuine Faux Leather and lined in a chocolate kinda irridescent (sp?) material. I should’ve snapped a picture of that huh? Next time.

5 Days until Christmas… Are YOU done shopping?

I haven’t started LOL

    I’m workin on my 3rd winter and JUST bought me some boots. But they’re still a lil too fashionable to be practical in the wintry weather. Maybe by next winter I’ll have it all together.
