Earlier this month I shared my fascination and long time love of snow with you. So, it should come as no surprise that I am an extremely happy girl right now as we, in the midwest, were fortunate enough to receive 8-10 inches of snow over Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Receiving this much snow has left us virtually home-ridden for the last couple of days - which I have not minded at all. The farthest we have been in the last 72 hours is to the in-law's house, 15 minutes away. Gasp! No Starbucks since Wednesday! Even with the snow shoveling (my first time), lack of Starbucks, and wearing ski apparel everywhere, I will say that Christmas felt just a wee bit more magical with the snow all around.
I hope everyone had a very happy holidays and spent it with the ones you love. Here's some highlights from our first Christmas.
We loaded up all of our gifts for the fam and headed over on Christmas Eve to open presents with Cory's family. Opening presents on Christmas Eve has been a family tradition for them for a long time.
