Christmas Eve

We had a pretty chill Christmas Eve, which suits me just fine.  It was nice to not be out on the roads or dealing with crazy traffic on the interstate.  We planned to go to church, but that didn't happen.  Instead, it snowed...and snowed...and snowed.  It started with just a little bit.

But, it kept coming...

At this point, I was getting excited as I thought I might have my first white Christmas!

Even Rocko was loving it....

Noah came in to warm up with some hot cocoa and we are dog sitting for our friends.  She liked the electric blanket!  She's no fool!

Then, it really started to come down and all the kids went out to play.

Noah and Emily built this cute snowman.

And Noah rolled this huge snowball.  I don't know how he did it as it weighed more than him.

They played and had fun.

And by the time the boys came in, their cheeks were bright red and snot was dripping out their noses.  That's how you know they had a good time.

Then, the snow stopped, but it started back up and boy did it look so pretty in the Christmas lights.

It was so nice that we all piled in the car and drove around looking at the lights and the snow.

And we watched it's a wonderful life.
It was a wonderful Christmas Eve.
