Seems like there are just too many fun things to do in December... and just not enough time to pack it all in!
We always get our tree up right away... Snowman Day... the day the snowmen take over the house!
The kids always get their special ornament on Snowman Day... this year's ornaments were Snow White & Darth Vader (what they were for Halloween)...
& we always have a special meal with a special dessert too!
We get around to doing some baking & decorating too... this year we got Mike in on the cookie decorating.
The kids are turning into pretty good decorators now... Mike didn't do too bad either!
It is going to be a white Christmas... surprisingly, not something that is guaranteed in MN. Better chance than where I grew up in NM but still not 100%. We had a big storm come through about a week ago & dumped about 5 inches on us but the farm got 16+, so we were anxious to head down our first free weekend to play in the snow!
We did a few warmup runs down by the barn before heading back into the valley & some larger hills. Melanie & I strapped on our snowshoes... we played in the snow, built snow forts & sledded... but our camera battery died, so there is nothing more to show for it all this time around!
