I'm dreaming of a white Christmas!

Emily has been hoping for many years for a genuine white Christmas (with the snow actively falling from the sky on Christmas Day . . . otherwise, "it doesn't count"!). This year she finally got one! We awoke to find a wonderful, quiet blanket of white outside our house (which continued to fall all day long!). We spent a fairly leisurely day eating cinnamon rolls, opening gifts and playing games. In fact, we've been spending as much of our school break as possible playing games together. We also managed to squeeze some bowling in there, and our family slumber party on New Year's Eve (yes, even mom and dad managed to make it to midnight, but not much beyond!) We're still hoping to go roller skating before we resume school next week.
