We will be going back to town on Christmas Day to join Chris' family and watch the little ones open their gifts andto have a little quality time with the grandchildren. In the afternoon we will join Tersie and her girls to watch the girls open their gifts and share some quality time with the girls and our grand puppy, Lucy as well. It makes it difficult at holiday time when divorce happens within a family. I remember my mom commenting one year that Alley Oop has had so many Christmas celebrations by the time we get her, she is too tired to enjoy it.
Hopefully we will be able to get off of the mountain and back to town on Christmas morning. We had single digit temperatures last night and it is already up to 15 degrees at 11:00 AM (sounds like a heat wave doesn't it?). They are calling for snow and one of those wonderful winter mixes in the next few days. The snow doesn't concern me, it is when the road gets covered with ice, it can make for quite a trip down the mountain.
As I have been typing this post, my attention has been drawn to the beautiful display going on outside my window. We are having just the slightest bit of snow fall right now. It is absolutely beautiful....... The wind is swirling these tiny little bits of snow all around. As they dance through the air on their journey to the ground they are caught in the rays of the sun to give the impression that instead of snow falling to the ground, it is the tiniest of diamonds. What a magical time of year.
Following Christmas we need to get things together for a trip to Louisiana and Texas to visit with our Rebel children and grandchildren. Before we leave though, we have Britt's birthday on New Years Day and as tradition has it, T~Bear will be coming out to spend New Year's Eve with us. Like I said, I really need to get a to-do list started.
Hoping that you will have a day full of blessings!
