Snowy days

We got a BIG snow this year in early December. 10 inches of beautiful white snow blanketed our world and gave us 4 days of no school! It was welcomed by all of us! Poor Ellie (and Austin and daddy at the end) was pretty sick for most of it, but we made the best of it. She was happy to rest and take it all in, and Annie and Austin were very good to let her rest. Daddy even closed the shop for a day, Unheard of! I think it's the biggest snow we've had in several years!

There has been lots of fun, and time to get all those Christmassy things in we don't always have time for. We baked Christmas cookies, played in the snow, made a gingerbread house, watched Christmas movies, played Monopoly, listened to Christmas music, worked on our advent calendar, did a Christmas bible study, wrapped presents, did online shopping, and rested a lot!

It's been a blessing to have this unexpected break in the midst of such a busy season. I feel mentally rested and ready to really enjoy the rest of the month. As my friend Alana said, maybe we should pray for a few snow days every December! :)
