Our Snowy Christmas

Warning: Photo Overload

Squirt was up way too early Christmas morning. We told him to go back to bed though. We finally got up around 7 I believe. Gift unwrapping went quickly as always. Here he is with his stack of gifts.

The hubby is such a gift wrapping pro is he not? 🙂

The weather forecasters were prediciting snow for northeastern counties in Alabama. Of course right where we were headed. But before we get to all the snow photos a bit more unwrapping of gifts. And of course my mother’s sausage balls. I should have brought some home with me. Probably best I didn’t though.

Before the day was over we hiked up to the top of the mountain (don’t get excited it’s just a little mountain) in the snow to try and get some photos. Of course I had to get photos of Squirt in a snowball fight.

My sister didn’t come prepared for snow so she had to borrow one of our dad’s coveralls and boots. She was quite proud of her outfit.

The day after Christmas hubby and I headed back home. The drive home was fine and the county road crews were on top of things and had the roads sanded in the worriesome parts. The snow covered landscape was beautiful to see, but by the time we made it about 40 minutes from home there was barely a dusting and none here at home, but I managed to get a few of the snow on the drive home.
