a white Christmas

I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas yesterday. We got up early with the kids who were patiently sitting at the top of the stairs next to a home-made sign that read,  "STOP! Go Get Mom & Dad! Merry Christmas!" We didn't want to miss the looks on their faces when they discovered their gifts (new bikes for all this year).  I love that moment. 
Kate was especially fun to watch as it was her first Christmas with daddy and her first year to understand the whole wrapping paper-new toys thing. When she opened her very first gift, she went so slowly, looking up at us every few seconds to see if she was going to be in trouble over the destruction of such a pretty package! She exclaimed "See?! See?!" over each new gift as she hugged them and held them out to us.
As we sat there, around the tree in our piles of paper and new toys, it began to snow. There is something so perfect about snow for Christmas -a gift from heaven in every way.
It's snowing again today, much harder this time, but still not sticking very well. I'm watching it swirl outside the window as I sit here unloading pictures from my camera.  I'll share those with you later. Right now I have a new book, a cozy spot on the couch and a wintry view calling my name.
Here are some pictures from the snowfall last week.  We're really hoping the neighborhood will look like this again soon...



  1. We woke up to snow this morning too. You said it right - a gift from heaven. I heard that it's the first time Greenville, NC has seen snow on Christmas since '69. I'm glad we stayed home this year!

  2. What an amazing Christmas story! Sounds like fun has been had by are going to have to share your tips for that cozy spot on the couch with a book. This alludes me.
