On The 8th Day of Christmas .... SNOW

I don't think the 12 days of Christmas song says that on the 8th day of Christmas my true love gave to me - snow, but that's what we had last night.  About 3 or 4 inches.  A beautiful white powder all over the yard.  I love it when we have snow for Christmas and as long as it is not dangerous to travel, then it is just perfect!

I'll be choosing two winners tomorrow so keep an eye out ..... you might be one of the lucky winners.  Sometimes the comments I receive show a no-reply at as your email address.  If that is the case, then I can't email you to say you have won.

This is my last Christmas picture.  It is my grandson, Rory, when he was about 2 years old.  He's 16 now and over 6 foot tall.  When he was about this age, we spent Christmas Eve there and slept in his room with him.  About 2 am I woke up and he was watching monster truck videos on the TV.    He couldn't sleep because he was so excited (we could definitely have slept more even if we were excited).    Christmas is so special when there are children around.  Even though both the grandkids are growing up (too fast), they still make Christmas a very special day.  


  1. There is no snow in SE Michigan...but you are right...snow on Christmas is magical as long as it is safe to travel to Nana's house. A fun blog hop for sure. Thanks for sharing the pictures of your Christmas's many memories thinking back to my Christmas's from the...good old days! Thanks for the chance, I'm keeping my fingers crossed. I haven't been naughty, just to let you know. Happy Holidays, Pauline

  2. Thank you for sharing your family photos and such lovely memories. You have put me in the Christmas spirit. Enjoy your snow!

  3. We had snow earlier in the week, but only about an inch. When I got up this morning the drive way was covered again, but quickly melted. It has been misting all day. Sure hope it doesn't turn to ice tonight, I don't like driving in ice!

    Thanks for sharing!

  4. We have very cold weather but no real snow yet just a very light dusting that is gone.
