We woke up this morning to a white world. The girls were thrilled to spend the morning making snow angels, sledding and having a snowball fight. Then we got cleaned up and headed to Greg's sister's house for the perfect lunch...soup and bread sticks. Yum! The reason for the get together was even better; my niece, Lindsey, got baptised today. It was the first event Greg's parents have missed, and we sure missed them, but we took pictures and had them in our thoughts and prayers. After the baptism there was more snow filled fun around the yard followed by some hot chocolate and a fire. After the girls watched a Christmas movie Greg took them over to the church to shovel, and I was lucky enough to curl up by the fire with a good book. It was very relaxing, but it was even better when the girls came home and sat next to me at the fire and told me about their adventures shoveling. So today I am grateful for cozy days that help me slow down and enjoy my family a little more.
