It’s been a few weeks since Christmas, but the memories are forever in my heart. We had a week of snow and freezing cold weather. The children were as creative as ever in their time outside in the snow. The boys hooked sleds to the quads and gave rides to the little ones for hours. They were inspired from our neighbor who took his truck out into the field and towed the children behind on sleds. I’m not sure who was having more fun! Where we live, snow is rare and usually only lasts a few hours. To have a whole week of snow was dreamy. And it was so cold that the snow was dry. Which meant I didn’t have to dry out all the snow clothes every time the children came in.
Christmas was lovely. The older children were so helpful this year in decorating. With our home almost completely finished with the remodel, it actually felt like we were somewhat normal this year. I love to decorate. And that’s an understatement! I study my Southern Living and Traditional Home magazines each month, filing away ideas and inspirations on design and decorating. Makes me happy.
We had Eric’s family and our friends over for Christmas dinner. It was a day of happiness and love and memories that I will tuck deep in my heart and reflect back on in the years ahead.
