A White Christmas

Yes, you read that right. We had a white Christmas. It wasn't all day, but still it snowed, here, on Christmas.

Rosie's last night with us, was the 23rd as she goes back with Santa on the night of the 24th. She decided to get a little crafty, but much to our surprise, Big K did NOT enjoy this trick. She was ready to take it down pretty much as soon as she crawled out from under it. 

Our Christmas started yesterday. According to Big K, Rosie brought us stockings yesterday.

After checking out stockings, we ate our traditional Christmas Eve breakfast of cinnamon rolls, and then opened presents. 

Little K got Big K a Rapunzel ornament. In exchange, Big K got Little K a Cinderella ornament.

After Christmas at our house, we went to see my grandmothers and open gifts there with my extended family. (We did Christmas with C's family on Sunday, but I didn't get any pictures. Little K was a little needy that day.)

This morning, sometime between 3 and 6, Big K joined us in bed. There was a pretty big storm come though, and the thunder scared her. We slept in, well, until about 8:30, and then finally wandered to the living  room to see what Santa had brought.

Big K was so excited because Santa brought her a princess bike!

Little K got some bows, which she seemed excited about because she smiled really big when I told her what they were.

After opening gifts, we headed off to IHOP for our traditional Christmas meal. We've been doing this since 2007.

After lunch, we hung out at home. Big K played with some of her new toys, and Little K napped.

Then to our real surprise, the weather forecast came true, and we got SNOW on Christmas! We weren't real sure how much we'd get, so we took pictures early on and then when it kept falling, we went out and took a few more.

Big K was over the moon happy about it. She would have stayed outside a lot longer if we would have let her.

Little K's first snow, not even a full month old!

Big K made a snow angel and helped C build a snowman almost the size of her!

Quite the Christmas! From our family to yours, Merry Christmas. May the Lord bless you!
