The only picture I took. Bingo!! I loved that everyone played together. Even grandma and grandpa great got in on the fun. It was my favorite part.
We woke up Christmas morning to a blanket of fresh white snow. We've had good snow for about a week, but the storm the meterologist promised had arrived. Opening gifts inside our warm home while the storm blew outside was nothing short of magical. Not so magical was getting to church. The snow was crazy, but I loved seeing all the men in suits and ties pushing cars out of the parking lot. I loved that so many people sacrificed to get to church and that so many people willingly served others, even in horrible circumstances. We then came home, changed back into our PJ's and hung out the whole rest of the day.
The downside to the snow was that it kept my parents from coming for Christmas dinner. But I'd rather be safe than sorry, and after the Idaho Falls Police urged everyone to stay off the roads, I knew it was the right decision. So, we'll wait it out and try again tomorrow.
The snow almost completely filled the window wells and the drifts look like ocean waves.
Scott out shoveling the dogs spot. This is were the snow hadn't drifted, some spots were four feet high.
It was a great Christmas. Spending time with loved ones and attending church. I'm grateful for Christmas and the times it gives us to remember the birth of Jesus Christ.
