I'm dreaming of a White Christmas!

Well for the first time in many years, we had a white Christmas in Texas! After the whirlwind of our 10 days away at disney and me ending my old job and starting a new one- it has been very hectic! We spent Christmas eve at my mom's house, as is tradition. We enjoyed our traditional mexican food dinner and opened way too many presents! Will enjoyed picking up all the trash (I told you he is obsessed with trash).

Here is the front of the house on Christmas Eve with all the snow!
Getting home Christmas Eve as a bit treacherous, but we managed. Christmas morning, we both went upstairs and got Will up. Santa brought him a train for Disneyworld, tons of cars (big and small), a play tent, a tunnel, books and a lot more. Here he is having a good time Christmas morning!

Later in the afternoon- we headed up to Oklahoma, just north of Ardmore to see Alan's family. We knew the roads could be bad up that way, but we had a big 4wheel drive truck. So we loaded up William the dogs and presents and headed out. The roads were fine until we crossed the border, then they started getting worse. by the time we reached the Turner Falls area, it was really bad- we counted about 55 stranded cars. 35 was down to one lane in many areas and the road was covered in like 6 inches of ice. It was a pretty scary ride. Once we exited for my MIL's neighborhood, it was even worse, since it is a small town and the neighborhood streets hadn't been travelled much. We watched a car spin out right behind us. We finally made it and there was a good foot of snow on the ground. There was a huge snow drift behind her house too. The dogs seemed to enjoy it though!
We had a good Christmas with Alan's family- enjoying opening gifts, eating and sharing time with family. Here is a precious picture of William in time out- crying! LOL
