Blizzard Christmas

The snow ran the show and stole the show for Sheats Christmas today. After Aliza made an early morning phone call to Grandma to make sure that she could "come to her house to open presents safely" we slowly made our way to Mom and Dad's house. We made the sentimental decison--to be at Mom's house for Christmas--my brother made the rational decision--to stay off the roads. It wasn't the same without him, Meghan, Caleb and Gideon.

Miss Princess (with her bare legs under that little skirt) welcomed Janell and her family.

There was a lot of snow. Mr. with his popsicle in one hand and bare feet inside his boots.

Josiah got a chainsaw from Grandma and Grandad and he was one happy little boy. Grandad had to find some wood for Josiah to cut.

Then he made his way outside to cut a tree. He went out all by himself, cut the tree, and then followed his tracks back to the house. So grown up.

My Christmas present.

Jeremy had to make the call whether to drive home after lunch or spend the night at Mom's. We decided to come home. This is how much snow we had. The normal 30 min. drive took an hour. The children all fell asleep on the way home and we had no slips or slides. Now we are snuggled in at home for the next couple of days.

That is such a good picture of you and Anna. I'm glad we managed to be together for Christmas despite the snow.
