Christmas 2009

Just some snapshots from the month of December to enjoy...The kids are very excited about Christmas, and have had fun seeing what our elves have been up to each morning. Their elves are named Jingles and Sparkles. Every morning when the children wake up, they come downstairs to see what the elves have done. They get notes from them in the advent calendar, and little gifts. It has become a wonderful little holiday tradition in our family. They also realize that the true meaning of Christmas is that it is a time to celebrate and reflect on the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ.

The Christmas Blizzard of 2009

Now, we have had snow storms many times, but we have never had THIS much snow while I have lived here in Virginia. It has truly become an epic event, and yes, we will have a very Merry White Christmas. This snow isn't going anywhere for quite a while I think. We have maybe 30 inches of snow. Here are the pictures so far of the December blizzard of 2009. Merry Christmas, everyone!
