I’m dreaming of a white Christmas….

My camera battery I dead today, but I did grab a couple pics off the gazette website. They’re small but I think you’ll get the point. This storm is breath-taking! We’ve been under Blizzard and Avalanche warnings here since early yesterday morning.

Here’s our family Christmas tradition:

We make paper gingerbread men to count the days from Thanksgiving to Christmas. Every year they’re different. Most years they have a daily activity on them. When the girls were little, they didn’t have things written on them…they “talked” to me and whispered in my ear what the daily activity was. Of course, back then it was so easy. Saying “you get to take a bath today!” would make them squeal with happiness.

The yellow one with the hat is “Jose”. He told us he wants to stay and be the one to see Santa come down the chimney (across the room). The red guy next to him is superman. He’s mad at the bad guys.

    Amazingly, now it’s 40 and sunny, and the snow’s starting to melt off. Everything’s different living up here a mile closer to the sun! (our house is at 6800 ft above sea level, it ranges here in town from 6000-7500 ft depending on where you are)
