I'm dreaming of a white Christmas just like the ones I used to know*pics added

We just don't see very much snow down here in west Texas. It's one of the things that I miss about Boise.
I loved having snow for Christmas, it feels so much more Christmas-y than a warm, sunny day in Texas.

It rained all day here yesterday so I was hoping, crossing my fingers and wishing that perhaps it would get cold enough overnight that we'd get some snow.

Guess what?

We did!

I woke up this morning and noticed how bright it looked outside so I took a peek out the window and everything is covered in beautiful white snow. Isn't that incredible? I think so.

Drifts of snow by our front porch

Merry Christmas to me!!!!

This is the wreath on our front door

I walked around with a smile on my face for a while so excited myself and excited to see the girls' reaction to having snow today. Matt, who grew up surrounded by probably too much snow in Tremonton, Utah was not as excited as the rest of us were. I think he thought it was at least a little bit cool, though.

The girls peeking out the back door

Of course now that it's snowy and windy and blowing I hope my mail lady will still come bearing gifts of my January kit from My Scrapbook Nook that I've been waiting for quite impatiently.

I guess we'll have to wait and see if the mail gets here today but for now I'll sit and enjoy my snow. Well, actually, I'd better go wrap some presents since we haven't wrapped ANYTHING yet. My time has been consumed with taking care of a sick Aimee this week.

I'll take some pics later for you to see.

Merry Christmas to you all !!!!!!!

So sorry to hear about Aimee. I hope she is starting to feel better, it is never fun to have sick kids. I also hope you get all your presents wrapped. I have been wrapping presents for weeks, but a lot aren't for us.
Have a very Merry Christmas!!

Hey there Becky... Snow in Tx? Seems kinda hard to believe doesn't it. That is alot of snow. Did you know it snowed in California last week? My parents said that in Danville and Walnut Creek they got about an inch.

I would agree with you, I have found that having snow on and around Christmas, DOES make it more Christmas-y.

Merry Christmas from The Malsbary Patch in Colorado.
