my true love gave to me: a second day of falling snow! Merry Christmas to you all!! Yesterday was pretty peaceful here. Snow fell steadily all day long and we just stayed in and watched it from inside.:) We had our second day of snow today. It warmed up a bit around noon and now the roads are a bit slushy. It looks like it's clouding up again and maybe dropping in temp. so we'll probably get more and a bit of ice, too.
It's been pretty calm aside from the entertaining. We had friends and their families over on both Saturday night and Christmas eve for dinner both times. We have other friends coming over possibly this Friday night for pizza and a movie. Then, we'll ring in the New Year at the house of some other friends. We haven't done much entertaining this year but, boy, when it rains, it pours!
The influx of gifts has been somewhat organized and found homes for. We're still keeping up our daily reading of the Gospel and have now undertaken the task of explaining the 12 Days of Christmas. So I am feeling a little bit less secular in terms of really living the spirit of Christmas. The load of gifts yesterday had me a little doubtful. I'm grateful, though, for how calm the kids are with new toys and games!
