I am sitting t my computer looking out the window at a nice heavy snow is coming down. It is just beautiful. I am a lover of snow! I think it is so pretty and makes everything look better. I love how it clings to the trees and covers the brown dead ground. My feeling is this...if it is going to be cold we may as well have the snow to go with it.
We had just barely a covering for Christmas but this is making up for it. Speaking of Christmas it was a great time. My SIL Judy had to work on Christmas eve so Jon brought the boys and we just visited and reminisced of Christmas' from our youth. The memory we all had and shared the most were of Christmas Eves when we would all get into the car and travel a half an hour to my Grandparent's house. We would celebrate with my Grandparents and my dad's brother and his family. There were 7 kids and 6 adults in a pretty small house. We would have a little supper first, then take family pictures and then finally get to open our presents. The thing my brother, sister and I remember the most though was the ride back home. We always got to see Christmas lights, we would sing Christmas carols and we would always look for Santa's sleigh in the sky. Funny how those little things make the biggest impression.
On Christmas day everyone was at my mom and dad's except for my oldest nephew who is in Arizona. I have to be honest and say that Isaiah was the main attraction. He loved tearing the wrapping paper off and he was very excited about the new things he got.

It was a great time and many memories were made. I do hope you all made great memories with your families and that you all keep them in your hearts!
