A White Christmas!

I absolutely love snow and it's always a special treat when we have a white Christmas!
 
 
So when snow started falling during the afternoon on Christmas Eve I was totally thrilled!







We spent most of the day baking cookies. then headed around the corner for dinner with some very dear friends.


When we returned late that night, the air was so still and calm.


It was Christmas Eve and the snow just made it feel magical!


Instead of heading to bed, we headed outside to play!












And the night just wouldn't be complete without a friendly snowball fight!







We finally headed inside to gather round the trees.


I counted my blessings.
And it took my breath away!
 
 
I hope your Christmas was magical too!

What a wonderful post! The snow made everything look extra beautiful. How fun, and what a cute picture of your family! No white Christmas here, but very, very rainy!! I love the rain, but we sort of end up with a brown Christmas after the dog has been outside for a while and comes in with the mud.....

Check your mail for that sign in 2013! I haven't forgotten, just still catching up! Have a wonderful New Year. So fun to get to know you better this year. -K
