Winter Wonderland

I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas.  It comes and goes so quickly, we all need to slow down and enjoy the moment.  My son Eric, his wife Kristin and friend Chad came down for a few days to help us celebrate.  We were so happy to have all of them.  And of course, Paul, Meredith, Reagan and Raleigh were here too.  The girls had a great Christmas with lots of fun presents and things to keep them busy. 

We've all been keeping an ear on the weather predictions and it seems, as Christmas got nearer, the weathermen were saying the "S" word more frequently.  On Christmas morning it seemed like it was surely going to SNOW and Eric and his crew were in a predicament.  They planned on leaving Sunday morning and needed to get back home for work.  What to do.  Finally we all decided they should leave after Christmas dinner just in case it got bad here.  You never know about these storms that come from the south.  So they headed out after dinner and got safely back home by midnight.  They ran into snow all along the I-95 corridor but ran out of it as soon as they headed west toward home. 

Well, what to our wondering eyes should appear Sunday morning, but about six-eight inches of SNOW!!!  Everyone here in the south gets excited about snow, especially this sort of snow that is big and just right for making snowmen.  So the kids made the right decision to get home last night and we have our beautiful snow.  So here are some wonderful snow pictures taken mostly from my front porch while I was still in my jammies!

So from our snowy home to yours, Merry Christmas!
