As we waited for the snow we wondered if it would keep us from spending Christmas with family. OK we didn't actually wonder that because we are true Minnesotans and never let a few inches of snow keep us home. So of course we made it to all our Christmas gatherings with both my family on Christmas eve followed by our church service and John's family on Christmas day.
We had most of Christmas day at home before heading to John's brother's house and so we took some time to enjoy the beautiful weather. Lots of fresh snow, no wind and warmer temperatures made it perfect for building a snowman and throwing a few snowballs. Isabelle kept begging for a snowball fight but then discovered the heavy snowballs actually hurt when you got hit by them. The reality of the activity wasn't quite what she had imagined. We decided to toss the snowballs on the garage roof instead.
