Yes Kimberly there is a Santa Claus!

  I made a wish for Christmas and it came true, one day late.
I have always said that if we have to suffer through cold weather we should be rewarded with snow. Well, sometime after midnight last night we were rewarded with beautiful, fluffy snow. I was so excited, I couldn't wait to go out by the lake behind our house and take pictures. Around 9 a.m. Chris and I took Baby and Harley out to play in the snow. Baby wasn't quite sure what to think of it, she took very careful steps and kept sticking her nose in it. Harley on the other hand was petrified. The snow was about as deep as he is tall, so once we put him in the snow he didn't dare move. We snapped a couple pictures of them and let them back inside to snuggle under the warm blankets.
The large picture in the collage is  the view from our bedroom window.
After coming inside to warm up a bit we decided to drive down to the Food Lion a couple miles from our house to return a couple red box movies and to let Ashton get some peanut butter cookies and Hershey kisses so she could make cookies. Can you believe FL doesn't sell peanut butter cookies in the refrigerated section? I mean really? They have every possible type of premade cookies but no peanut butter! Ahhh, well after pulling the recipe up on her phone and seeing that the ingredient list seemed as long as her arm she decided she'd "settle" for the premade cookies with peanut butter cups in them.
On the way home from FL Chris pulled over to the side of the road so I take a picture of this big tree.
The snowman was made by some of the neighborhood kids, I love his hat.
Chris and I took a walk after the Chicago bears game { yay bears} so I could take more pictures of the snow. I know it seem like I've never seen snow before but you see, we don't get very much snow here in Fayetteville so this one is definately a treat. I think we go about 6 inches. I know most of you get much more than that and 6 inches seems like nothing, but this is probably the only snow we'll get this winter.
I can definately say I got my Christmas wish, I hope you got yours too.
Till next time,
Kimberly: )
