This has been the most awesome day E.V.E.R.
The girls were here this weekend, and we made plans to decorate for Christmas. First, let me say that I LOVE this time of year. Christmas is my favorite holiday (with Thanksgiving coming in a very close second) and I turn into an eight-year-old just after Halloween. I start playing Christmas tunes way too early, and am always disappointed that I am the only one in my circle of friends and family who wants to celebrate Christmas in July.
Much to my delight, the weather forecast had been calling for a dusting of snow today. You would think that in my twenty-five-plus years of living in the Southeast I would learn to take those forecasts with a grain of salt and not get my hopes up. But every single time I get my hopes up.
Well, this forecast did not disappoint! (Kudos to Greg Fishel! You are my hero!) The snow started falling late morning and did not stop until early evening. I knew that the ground was too warm for the flakes to stick to the pavement, but the roofs and cars and trees and grass were soon covered in white. It was beautiful! When all was said and done, we got about an inch of it. (Stop laughing, you Northerners and Mid-Westerners... I'll take what I can get!)
We got the tree and house decked to Christmas tunes, cookies baking, and a snowy background. I don't think I could have asked for a more perfect day!
