Today we had one of the laziest days we have had in a long time. We all stayed in our PJ’s. The kids watched TV in front of the fireplace. We had pizza and snacked on Christmas goodies. We played a family game and wrapped some presents. We sipped on hot chocolate and coffee. And we spent over an hour outside playing in the snow. It was wonderful. And just what I needed after a stressful and emotional few weeks. I love my family.
The light flakes fell on and off all day, leaving us about an inch of new powder to play in. And even though I routinely complain about the cold and our long winters, there is just something about fresh snow the Sunday before Christmas. It makes me happy.
