Christmas on a Snow Day

Monday we had a snow day.
We all got to stay home from school,
David went to work for a few hours, but left late and came home super early.
I put a roast in the oven and
we decided that we would have an early Christmas.

The four of us decided that we would only
do stocking stuffers this year since we are going to be at my parents
Christmas morning.

We started with the Christmas story...

We sat in front of Davids Grandma's tree, with all it's handmade
ornaments from David and his brother.

Candy, t-shirts, and fun stuffers...

...sweaters, magazines...

...socks, and mugs...

It was a wonderful family time.

Now it is a little weird.
Holiday commercials, people rushing around
buying last minute gifts in a panic.
We are calm and done. Christmas behind us.

It is almost as if we celebrate a holiday
such as Diwali or Hanukkah and have these crazy Christmas celebrating
weirdos to contend with and put up with.
