They returned and we had Pier 49 for pizza night. I ordered Sam's favorites, pesto chicken and spinach Alfredo. Later we looked outside and saw snow falling. Grant was so excited, he ran out in his pajamas and bare feet. Sam helped all the kids get on coats and boots for a late night snow ball fight. I was nervous about driving Grandma Martha home in the new, slippery snow, and grateful to return home safely. The biggest thing I don't like about winter is the possibility of limited mobility. Grant wasn't worried about anything.
Tuesday was the kids' last day of school for the week. Mary and Caitlin came home dressed in paper bags and construction paper feathers. I can remember so clearly my own oatmeal box Indian drums of childhood. Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday.
Tuesday evening, I surprised the kids with a trip to Pizza Pie Cafe to start off the weekend. I loved this pumpkin pizza. The place was packed. They were having a text special; three dollars off the regular buffet price. Caitlin had a coupon for two free kids buffets for her October reading reward.
After dinner Sam and Mary walked over to the mall to enjoy the lights and the gingerbread houses in all the shops.
