Snow Day & Some Holiday Decor

I am officially signing off until after Christmas!  We are traveling to my sister’s, so I am busy getting packed up and getting last minute things in order.  It did snow here yesterday, but it’s already starting to melt.  My sister, just 3 hours north of us, got dumped on!  We are taking our cold weather gear up there so the kids can go sledding and play in the huge mounds with their cousins.  What a difference 3 hours makes!

The kids in our backyard (Samson got in on the action too)…

And here is a picture of where we are going (my sister’s in Iowa).  It/s –1 wind chill right now.  Steve and I grew up with this, but after living in the south for 10 years, it is hard to revert back to this!photo (5)

I didn’t do a lot of holiday décor this year.  Last Christmas, while our house was being finished, we were living in a hotel room, so I did not have any decorations out.  This year, I kept it simple.  I already have a lot of red in my house, so it looks festive without putting much out!
