Still Snow Sliding Without Snow

The calendar may say December, but we still have no snow on the ground. That has not stopped Cheoah from snow sliding, however.

No snow. No problem.

No snow. No problem.

We have mentioned before that Cheoah is practicing her snow slide. Nothing has changed since that post. We still do not have our first snow, despite the fact that it is weeks late. And she still doesn’t care and is doing her snow slide during our afternoon family walks.

Just pretend we have snow.

Just pretend we have snow.

We also promised to update you with the status of the skin lesions that we had removed from Cheesewhiz last week. Tests have revealed that they are perfectly benign necrotizing keratoma. Though it was the positive news we expected, we are still thrilled to receive such good news. And Cheesewhiz continues her snow sliding celebration.

Almost like snow.

Almost like snow.

    Mom ‘n Ebby say: Wonderful news, Cheoah! Happy sliding this year. We’ve got snow up here now, hopefully it won’t be long before you’re covered in white, as well!
