A White Christmas

We spent Christmas with my family this year. We drove to Oklahoma on Christmas Adam after we got out of church and stopped by the house to eat and load our bags (and presents!) There was snow in the forecast so we had to dig out our cold weather clothes. 

Christmas morning we woke up and the ground was wet. It had rained that night. While we were opening presents it started to sleet. And then it started to SNOW!

It snowed BIG flakes!


It was very cold and windy so we waited for several hours before we bundled up and went outside.

Olivia was running a bit of a fever and just wanted to cuddle all day so she didn't spend much time out in the snow. Grace played for a long time. The cold didn't seem to bother her a bit!

We gathered a bowl full to make snow ice cream. We mixed some sweetened condensed milk and vanilla in with the snow.

But Grace thought it needed some chocolate syrup. Perfect!

Olivia perked up after she had some snow ice cream. Maybe we should have made it earlier?

Grace even wanted to go back out in the snow! When she was finally done playing outside she warmed up with a cup of hot chocolate.

I don't remember when the last time I saw a white Christmas!
