Merry Christmas, Everyone Everywhere!
Well, we are deep in snow, and it has been a slow week for us. We're going to where my parents are staying this evening for a little Christmas Eve get together. Our sibling plans have been postponed until Friday, since road conditions are not too pretty around here. Our exciting moment of the day was sliding 180 degrees while driving, then shortly after that sliding into a snowdrift that we had to be pulled out of by a big truck. All of this a couple of blocks from our home. Looks like the snow is melting a bit now, though!
Although I didn't do the usual gift-making and card-mailing that is customary around the holidays, it doesn't mean that I love and miss each of you friends and family members any less! We have been taking it easy and enjoying celebrating advent. Each night we have been lighting the advent candles and singing Christmas hymns with Amelia. It has been so special and meaningful, I will be sad when it's over tomorrow. We'll have to come up with some new family rituals to observe through the rest of the year...
Merry Christmas to each of you!
