A "White Christmas" with snow on the ground is what everyone says they want. But it's really a little ... inconvenient. It's not something people really want to drive in, and even though it's Christmas, we've got places to go and people to see!
Like last weekend's Christmas party with my Mom's side of the family. Everything was all planned, the food was all prepared. We drove all the way up to their house the night before, and stayed over. But the day of the party, the snow and ice and rain and sleet kept everyone home. We did all party at our own houses, and trade the pictures back and forth... see in this picture, there is the computer? Our family is on the computer. So it's LIKE a family photo with most of us together...
Actually, these photos are missing a lot of people - some who were supposed to be at the party but didn't get in on the photo taking, and a bunch of other people who weren't making the party anyway, because they were too far away.
This is the photo we sent them, with another photo of them in the background, if you look carefully...
We didn't do video conferencing, because we're good, but we're not THAT good :P
Next year, the plan is to celebrate Christmas in July so we don't have to contend with the weather.
Now they are calling for 12 to 20 inches of snow for today and tomorrow. Wow! That's kinda exciting. It should still be on the ground by Christmas, for sure! But right now, I've got stuff to do to get ready, and this snow is NOT what I had in mind! I'll post pictures of the snow later... hope it holds off until I've had a chance to get shopping again!
