A Merry Christmas & Digging Out

Hello everyone! Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! We sure did! Christmas Eve the whole family helped make appetizers, we baked & decorated cookies. Our five kids drew names so they got to open their name draw gift. And of course, cookies and milk were set out for Santa. We didn’t forget the reindeer! Carrots for them too!

Here is the gift that our son Alex gave us. How sweet is this?! He was so excited for us to open it, and so proud when we did! He made it in Preschool. All I had to add was a tea light! Looks like stained glass! These are the gifts we love the most!

Our Christmas Day was wonderful as well. Up early to open stockings and gifts. Then a big meal and some games on the new Wii!

The whole time we were doing all  of these fun things it was snowing and blowing outside! We didn’t care. We had no where to be. So Let It Snow Let It Snow Let It Snow!

This is what we had to deal with when all the festivities were over~

You will be happy to know that we are all dug out! It took over 3 hours, but we got the job done! And to top that off Mother Nature thought that we needed another inch the night we had  just snow blowed and shoveled!

I  found this quote and thought…oh how true!

“Snowflakes are one of nature's most fragile things,
but just look what they can do when they stick together”.

Until next time, take care. ~Sarah~
