Our Christmas Snow

Joey and I found out a couple of days before Christmas that there was the possibility of snow on Christmas Eve. A lot of times that changes..so we didn't get our hopes up...and we didn't tell the kids(we didn't want their little hopes dashed!) We live in North Texas so snow isn't common. We get it maybe once a year on average. Some years, none, some years we've gotten it several times. So, we never know what we'll get. Christmas Eve came and went with nothing. Then Christmas morning, something magical happened...flurries..and then those flurries turned to glistening white snowflakes. Before long our house was completely enveloped in white. It was so peaceful and beautiful to look out the window and watch. There was this moment that day where I remember looking out the window while we ate our Christmas dinner and just feeling like, right now life is perfect. Nothing beats this. Spending Christmas in our new dream home with snow falling outside..couldn't have asked for a more wonderful Christmas!

Enjoy the pictures...the night pics are from actual Christmas day. We waited until the evening to go out because the snow had stopped falling finally(while it was falling it was super windy and wet!) ...and then the daytime pics are from the next day when we really got to enjoy playing in it in the sunshine. Joey had the day off which was extra fun. Ammon was hilarious. I don't think I have ever seen the boy so happy. He just kept laughing..and laughing..and laughing and falling over. Which made all of us laugh. Funny kid. Natural born snowboarder? :) He definitely loves the snow. And Wesley saw his very first snow too. Just sorta stared at it :) Oh and the girls helped Joey build a snowfort and had snowball fights(none of which ended in tears which was a miracle:) The fort turned out really cool. They spent hours covering the little wooden playhouse we have in snow. Good work yall! This was definitely a Christmas we'll never forget!

Wasn't that just the perfect Christmas day??!! I will always remember that. We spent the entire day just being a family and spending tons of time together. We have so much to be grateful for. My heart was full that day too...
