A White Christmas

Yep, that's right... We had a white Christmas yesterday! Not enough to build any snowmen with or go sledding in, but very pretty HUGE flakes were falling on our heads. Of course, Padraic was trying to eat the snow as it fell, but I don't think he was very successful in catching any on his tongue. Silly boy.

We ended up driving to Grandma'& Grandpa's house shortly after these pictures were taken and by the time we arrived home again in the evening, the snow had melted. So sad.

But... the weatherman did say that we should get some more of it tomorrow! I'll keep my fingers crossed and hope he's right. I love the snow!

Fun times with my kiddos!

We're posing for the camera with the gingerbread

"Can I eat it now, Mom?"
Beware all you gingerbread men...Padraic will bite your head off!

"Tada!" Padraic's first gingerbread house

Owen is having some fun being a present under the Christmas tree

What a cutie!

Christmas craziness!

I am so glad that I am done with my Christmas shopping. The roads, the stores... everywhere you go, there are a TON of people! It's like when you turn off the lights and all the cockroaches come scurrying out of their holes! There's traffic everywhere, the lines at the market are crazy long, stores are staying open until midnight, there's no toys or gifts left to buy on the shelves... Ugh! Just nuts!

I went out to Target the other day just to get diapers and wipes (cuz you know they have THE best price around) and I was amazed at the amount of people in the store. You couldn't go more than 10 feet without encountering another person. And they're rude too. They just stand there in your way, not even caring that you'd like to go down that isle too. And in the toy dept. Well, lets just say if you came there that night to get a last minute toy for your child, you were out of luck... nothing was left on the shelf. But lucky for me, no one buys diapers for Christmas presents, so there were plenty left in stock for me.

Hopefully you all have finished your shopping too?
