I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas ...

Well, I could hardly believe my eyes when it started to SNOW right here in the heart of NC Christmas evening around 8 pm ... I've lived in NC for almost 15 years and we've never had snow in December nor for Christmas -- the last time they had a white Christmas was 1947!!!

We got up this morning, put our woolies on and then my hubby and I joined our youngest son for a walk down to the golf clubhouse where he works.  It's about a 1/2 mile walk from our house.  The head pro called him to say that he didn't have to work today (no kidding!!) and that he would not be able to make the drive in (normally a 45 minute commute) to check the clubhouse to be sure no pipes had burst overnight, etc.  He asked my son, even though the shop would be closed for today, to go down anyways, open up and check things out just so he could have peace of mind that all was okay on the homefront in his absence.

What a lovely walk the 3 of us had ... so peaceful, so quiet, so beautiful!!

We have LOTS of left overs from the past 2 days of cooking and eating, so we are hunkering down, watching football and staying warm and cozy!

And here's one more at twilight after my sons built the snowman ... see him on the far left!!

I hope you are enjoying a relaxing day after Christmas with everyone that you love too :)

The photos are like a holiday card themselves! We are getting the snowstorm here now--a day late for Christmas but, to me, better late than never! I just think it makes for such a cozy time. Enjoy!

What a pretty picture!! So glad you were able to enjoy a white Christmas!! Here in Indiana, we've had snow on the ground for 3 weeks and we had a pretty snow on Christmas Eve--it was beautiful coming out of church that night! My kids have been having a blast!! Sounds like you and your family have had a nice Christmas! thanks for sharing!!

Just Beautiful! We get no snow here in Phoenix, so we live vicariously through the internet...ha ha! TFS.
