I'm Dreaming Of A White Christmas...It Came True!!

I think it has been at least 20 years since we have actually had a white Christmas. I could not get my pictures to load so I put one on that looks like our snow this morning. It started snowing at about two in the morning and just stopped right now at 2:30pm in the afternoon. We lost power this morning at 6:00am and it just now came back on.

It was pretty funny how all of us coffee drinkers were figuring out how in the world to make coffee without electricity. We boiled water on the fire...etc. You can imagine. It was quite hilarious. We take alot of comforts for granted let me just say.

Anyway, one good thing is when all the heat you have is one fireplace everyone stays right together in a 15 foot area. There was lots of good conversation and laughter, book reading, game playing and napping. No tv or anything electric going on. It was very fun and enjoyable.

Blessings on your Christmas Eve. We are loving our White Christmas... where the tree tops glisten and children listen to hear sleigh bells in the snow...

Sounds like you got to enjoy part of "our world"! Living without some of the things we take for granted often brings us closer together.

We are WARM & without snow! It's weird for us, but I'm happy for ya'll!

May you find the joy as you face the challenges & celebrations of this coming season in your lives.

He Lives!

Christmas Blessings!
