I'm Dreaming of....

A White Christmas! We actually got one, too! I know it is technically Christmas Eve and not the actual day, but it counts in my book. Being from Texas, this is about as close as we are ever going to get!

We had an amazing day with the snow. At times it looked to be brewing a blizzard outside. Snow was blowing everywhere and it came down for most of the day. The girls had a blast. Lauren was a little less afraid of it this time around an actually touched the white stuff. We enjoyed being at home all together. We played games, drank hot cocoa, and just took it easy while watching the outside entertainment.

Later tonight we went to Charlie's Uncle Mark and Aunt Karen's house for our traditional Christmas Eve celebration of brats and beer. Well....there was lots of other stuff to both eat and drink, but that is the tradition. We then did our gift exchange. Sarah and Lauren were very excited about opening presents.

We then came home and got ready for bed quickly, but not before leaving the jolly old elf some midnight snacks. Then it was a quick read of 'Twas the Night Before Christmas and then off to bed! Merry Christmas everyone and thanks Santa for the snow! It made this about the most perfect Christmas Eve you can get!

I'm so jealous! It never snowed when I lived in Houston...and now that I'm back in Florida, it definitely never snows here. Ah ha ha
