Hi, everyone. I hope you all had a nice Christmas. Ours was very nice, and we had a wonderful time visiting with our families. It's always fun to be together. :)

We had a white Christmas again this year. My parents have these spruce trees all around their house. I think the trees are so pretty when it snows.

Katie had a lot of fun too. Here she is sledding in my parents' back yard. That's the same sled I used when I was a kid. :)
As you can see, Lilly had a lot of fun too. She loves the snow!

We had to delay our trip home because of the snow, so we got to enjoy some extra time with Mom and Dad.
We have a few days left of Christmas break before we're back to school and work on Monday.
Hope you're all doing well. :)

Take care,


  1. Not so bad being stuck with family. We had snow too...just loved it for Christmas, although it did not start til later in the evening. Happy New year!

  2. I love your cute background. So glad you had a good Christmas! I love the sledding picture with the dog running behind!!

  3. Dear Melanie,
    It sounds like you had such a nice Christmas, and a blanket of snow to make the season even more special. I hope you have a Blessed New Year.
