Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow !!!

The snow finally found us !!  yikes !!!  It started yesterday around 9AM and is still snowing but starting to stop. We have plenty of it on the ground.  The snow plows have been out and the shoveling has started. Thankfully I don't have to go out in it to go to work. That is one good thing you can say for retirement. The wind is terrible and a lot of people have lost their power because of it.  So far we are ok.

Our Christmas was a good one.  We went to my son's home for Christmas Eve for dinner and gifts.  My DIL makes Lasagna every year for Christmas Eve.  Yum, so good. She decorated their tree this year with teddy bears. So cute !! We had a good time until DH started to feel unwell. So we left around 9 PM.

 We went to Dh's daughter's home for Christmas Day, it was along day but a good one.  All DH's children and his grands were there. Big crowd !!  The teens were all in the basement playing pool, they would pop upstairs every once in a while to get food. And there was a abundance of food.  We ate all day !!!!!

Wonderful photos! Family gatherings and Christmas. It doesn't get better than that.

Thank you for your comment on my blog. Yes, I am near enough that we did get hit by the same storm. I live on Long Island. :)

A very happy New Year to you and yours.
