The Most Wonderful Time
I've got to say, today was one of my most favorite days ever. Rarely in Oklahoma does it snow all day, but today was one of those days. It takes me back to my childhood in Wisconsin and Iowa and I was just thrilled that my children could experience it!

We stayed home in our pajamas all morning and assembled our Christmas tree. At first we listened to Christmas music, but then the boys sang so we didn't need the CDs. We stopped for lunch and then each did our own thing for a bit. Dinner was bubbling in the crock pot.

Friends came by in the afternoon and took the boys over to the school for some sledding. They returned red-faced and covered in snow, clearly exhausted but happy. We all had cocoa with marshmallows and some graham crackers.

After a dinner of barbecued chicken, mashed potatoes and corn bread, we are all happily snuggled in for the evening. Outside the snow is falling steadily, the lamplight glows yellow and our Christmas lights glimmer even brighter against the white crystal blanket of snow.

Who could ask for anything more?

Cornbread was the common fare for most Oklahomans on Thursday night, I bet. We too, had cornbread....homemade, too. :)
