Tis' the Season.....Fa la la la la
We had our first snow today! In our little family...the first snow is a very big deal because Tommy and I make a prediction in October as to when the first INCH will fall. I picked November 15th (I was wishing!!) and he picked December 24th (always the realist!)...so he won. I now owe him dinner at whatever place he chooses! He might cash in on dinner this weekend. He has been crowned the Snow King for 2006.
We got out of school early today--which is always a crazy process! But it was fun to see the faces of the kiddos when they saw the huge flakes start to dump from the sky. Any chance of learning flew right out the window once the weather set in. I was so happy for snow, too. Though my communte home was a bit ...ahem..white-knuckled....I felt the holidays finally begin! It just isn't holiday-ish enough for me without the white stuff.
These are our big trees this year. It is hard to capture the true beauty of a twinkling tree because of the ol' flash...but you are able to get the idea.
I just love coming home to a house full of Christmas! It is quite magical.
