Christmas 2012 {Part Two}


They said there was a *chance* of snow on Christmas Day.  
But those weather forecasters in Texas always seem to exaggerate the snow news around here.
But they didn't lie this time.  It legitimately snowed.  The kids were so excited!  I couldn't believe it.  It wasn't snowing in Minnesota (where we were supposed to be) but it was snowing here.  It truly was a magical day.  We stayed in our pj's most of the day, got out our winter stuff, and enjoyed the snow.




Asher was the first one dressed to go outside.  It was cold.  32 degrees and windy.

He was old enough to enjoy the snow this year.

This hat is my fav.  I'm glad he has the chance to wear it one last year before it's too small.

His first snowball.









Me watching from the window with hot coffee to warm my hands in between running outside to snap pictures :)





Watching his older brothers outside when he got too cold.





We ended the day with some Lego building by candlelight.

Grateful for this Christmas.  Grateful for the snow.  Grateful for our sweet little family and that we were able to enjoy this holiday together in our new home.  The walls are bare around here.  We are still getting settled, and this Christmas has not been perfect.  But we will always remember our first Christmas in this house.  The snow was such a gift to our kids who were sad about not traveling north this year.  This house is a gift from the Lord.  So much to be thankful for.

I love the door. I love that you had snow (still a little bitter, because we had 100% chance here in MO, then, got nothin'). I love every pic. Definitely, a memorable Christmas. So grateful for your family and the faith you demonstrate as you walk in God's ways.

So hard not be jealous of the white Christmas in FW!! We keep missing it! Great pictures-- have to say, that Nathan is still stealing the show in the photographs. I love the hat too. {And your little get up from the skirt down.}
And ditto Niki above. ; )
