Merry Christmas!

We had a blessed Christmas Day! Here are a bunch of pictures to share.

To start, we learned early in the week that a major snowstorm was headed our way. If it produced the amount of snow predicted, travel would be snarled and records for snowfall over Christmas for central Minnesota would be set.


{snowfall before the storm really began, on Wednesday}




{Snowfall by midday on Thursday...not as much as predicted (only about 4 inches), and easily plowed off the roads}



{Snowfall Christmas morning...somewhere around 9 to 10 inches...not as much as predicted, but certainly a respectable amount...it is wet and heavy, doesn't blow well, and melts off the roads easily, so travel is not bad}



{Our Christmas tree is so beautiful this year}

{Finding baby Jesus in the "manger" on Christmas morning was a special treat for Malachi}

{We were so thankful to be able to share our tradition with Patrick...everyone took a turn holding the baby...and we finished Bartholomew's Passage}



{Yeah, that's kind of how Tirzah treats everything and everyone!}

{Dad brought Josh a treat after he was done shoveling}

{Merry Christmas!!!}

We had a fantastic afternoon and evening.  Our day was light and fun.  We had a wonderful meal with Holly & Kyle and Paul & Marilyn.  I felt better today...enough to help make the meal, and that's saying a lot since on Monday it was difficult for me to even make a baby's bottle, much less a meal.  We are so thankful for our family and for our extended families far away!  I look forward to resting the rest of the weekend.  :)
