We had a lovely wintery white Christmas Day.
The snow started to fall in early morning. We enjoyed a delicious breakfast.
The children opened their gifts. We had a very special Christmas even though for the third year in a row, we had very little finances to spend on Christmas. The bonus hoped for did not come through. But we celebrated anyway.
We teach the children that Christmas is special and we share gifts on this day to honor Jesus. We don’t worship the gifts, or the holiday, but we worship the Son of God. This is the day on our calendar that we celebrate his birth. Here is more information from the scriptures about his birth: Read Matthew 1
and Luke 2
I took these pictures about noon and we had about three to four inches of snow already. We accumulated around 8 inches by evening. More snow forecasted for the following day.
Soft, but crunchy, quiet, feathery and light, yet frozen cold.
The light came in very bright through the windows as it reflected off the snow.
Warm and cozy inside, my family and I busily prepared our holiday feasts.
Here my son is poking the baking potatoes with a fork. Little sister helped mommy wrap the potatoes.
We made a red velvet cake for Jesus birthday cake.
Here my husband is preparing a plate for the younger children.
The snow continued to come down all day. The trees were giving way to the heavy load of snow. As the limbs got heavier, they would bend down, I could hear a gushing sound as the tree released a huge avalanche of snow to empty off the weight. An amazing sight and sound.
Later in the afternoon, the three older boys played in the snow, built a snowman, and had a snowball fight till dark.
We warmed up with mocha latte and hot chocolate.
