Snow and Mistletoe


    While on my morning commute the other day I spied some hoar frost on the ground.  If you've never seen it before, it's a naturally occurring ribbon of frost that gathers on the ground around the stems of plants.  It's absolutely stunning and I loved to find it in the woods on frosty mornings as a child.  Just the lightest touch from my warm little hands would make it melt, so I learned not to touch.  It's different with my children.  They know that if they touch it and it melts, it will come back again tomorrow or the next day and they don't worry about it the way I did.  S, on this particular morning, I stopped the car and hopped out with them to take a few pics and let them hold a few pieces of it for the moment that it lasted.  It was a very small thing, but it made them immensely happy and sent them bounding into the school to tell their friends when we arrived. 
Now they're out for the holidays and it's time to start getting our Christmas outfits ready to wear.  I selected mine and had it proudly on display...until I realized it almost matches Beverly D'Angelo's outfit in National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation.  Awww, man, we're dressed alike!?  It could have deterred me, but what the heck, it's a great movie.  Why not wear it as an homage to a lady who kept her cool  and looked good during a very stressful Christmas.
