(The above photos, two are taken of the courtyard that is located in the center of our LDS chapel…my brother Kaleb standing where the small children usually play during Sunday classes. The middle photo is taken from the front door of the LDS chapel…the 60 or so people that came to worship came in through the back door.)
Church wasn’t cancelled last Sunday, but “stay home if it isn’t safe to travel” calls were made to each member/family in the congregation.
I had enough of being cooped up in our house for a few days, I was going to church come hell or high snow drifts.
I had to tell Dan to slow down so many times, he eventually put it in neutral and the car kinda of rolled along…
I happily hummed Christmas songs while we “cruised along” and took photos.
Dan obliged me a bit more and we drove down more icy roads so I could get this:
I started to feel hunger pains, so I told him he could put the truck in drive…we did have to get on the highway ya know.
Dan asked if he could fish tail the truck a bit and told me, “if we get stuck you can tell me ‘I told you so and make fun of me.’ To which I told him, “I would do that any way, deal or no deal.”
I wanted to walk back to the house, so I hopped out here. I love talking walks in the snow – I did it many a time in Utah!
In addition to walking back to the house, I ate some Oreos on my way in.
Wiley loves to be outside too – and if we didn’t force him inside – he’d live out there with the ducks.
I grew up in southern California, I remember roller skating in shorts on Christmas day.
There is nothing wrong with shorts and sunshine in December…unless you watch too many Christmas movies, which I did and always longed for a Hollywood, snow covered people singing about how happy they are while they are snow shoeing…SNOW covered December.
The Christmas season is always a time to get together with friends
What am I saying? Any time is a good time to get together with friends.
and I can’t wait to see family in Texas in a few weeks, even if there is no snow.
because as I said, snow doesn’t a Christmas make.
Here’s to enjoying the snow while it lasts!
