I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas

Out my front window.

My Granddaughters, Maddy, Kailey, and Avery

My son Brad and his wife Ramie

My nephew, Shawn and his girlfriend Kieu and my sister and brother in the background.

Well, we got our wish this year.  It started snowing Christmas Eve afternoon as we were watching the Seahawks win.  We celebrate on Christmas Eve day and evening with a dinner and opening presents.  It snowed into the evening and overnight and still trying to now.  The roads are wet right now, but it's supposed to get into the upper 20's tonight.  Glad I don't have to go anywhere tomorrow.  It has only snowed on Christmas 2 or 3 times in my lifetime, so this is really special for us.   It's so beautiful.

Hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas.
