A Verry Merry White Christmas

*For all my Southern friends. :)

Christmas Eve we received the most beautiful covering of snow. It fell consistently through Christmas Day, though I never did hear the final count in inches. I love fresh fallen snow, everything seems to stand still and there is a quiet in the air like no other time. The world just feels insulated. Which is a good thing when it's slippery and you almost take out a railing at the mall, and several mailboxes between your house and Grandma's. Those huge snowbanks are ever so helpful. Winter is really quite amazing and one of the reasons we love living in Minnesota. Especially when it means a White Christmas.

This is what I saw Thursday morning. It took David an hour and 40 minutes to shovel the whole drive. We've got the longest driveway in the neighborhood. Not such a good thing when your snow blower is in the shop for another couple of weeks. Again. I highly recommend purchasing the warranty, because we have found out that saving the extra bucks doesn't really {save the extra bucks}. We've used it maybe 5 times in the past 3 years and it's been in the shop almost as many times. It's more like a really expensive gym membership.

Thankfully he had some little helpers.

They were surprisingly very good helpers.

A little bit of fun was thrown in for good measure.

This guy creates the most work, leaving a huge pile at the end of the driveway.

But then again...we've got good helpers.

While I made yummy cocoa on the stove, little man was just getting up from a nap.

He is seriously happy all the time. Unless you cross him. Then watch out, he's a biter.

He can't wait for his turn with the shovel.

Soon, my Rocket Boy...all too soon.

Oooooooh - you know I'm lovin' all that snow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Early Christmas Eve we didn't even need a jacket :( It got a little "colder" later on, but there's just nothing like a white Christmas. Love, love, love Sam's rocket jammies too! Hope you all had a beautiful Christmas!

Wow, thats great, I live in California, and where I live we don't get snow, which is okay with me because I don't really like it, but being from the northeast, Christmas is a little bit weird. Its kind of hard to get in the spirit.
