A White Christmas!

What a blessed Christmas we had!  Down here in the South, we only get a White Christmas about every 20 years or so; therefore, it was a real treat to enjoy the snow this Christmas weekend.  The funny thing is, when I talked to my Dad over the phone early Christmas morning, he asked if we had a White Christmas.  At the time, it was just dreary, wet and drizzly snow.  About ten minutes later, the snow started and didn't stop for several hours.  Here is a glimpse in pictures of our White Christmas on the farm.

Christmas Eve

The best attempt at a picture of all the cousins...

And the stockings were hung by the chimney sitting on the couch with care....

Christmas morning

1st Christmas....not too sure about this.

You mean, I don't get to eat breakfast until all these boxes are opened???

My hero....getting the fire ready in the cold, drizzly, spitting snow

The beginnings of a White Christmas

About an hour later....

2 hours later....

The beauty of God's creation

Our Snowman, Ned

Ummm, Big Pop, is that Charlie's bottle you have there??

Patiently waiting for Christmas Dinner

Not so patiently waiting for Christmas Dinner

In the midst of family gatherings, opening presents, eating wonderful Christmas food and playing in the snow, we gave thanks to God for his gift to us....Emmanuel.  I hope you all were able to enjoy this Christmas with those you love and remember the true reason we celebrate. 

Merry Christmas!!!

*More snow pictures to come....soon.
