Christmas, 2012

I got up at 5 am today which give me a chance to fill stockings since I don't trust the dog overnight.  It would't be good if he decided to take a nibble of chocolate or some other goodie.  Santa was definitely good to us.

It was fine outside when we got up but by 8 am it was snowing like crazy.  This is the view from our back porch:

Strangely enough, the sun came out at about 11 am, and it was a gorgeous day!  Chris came over after braving the storm, we opened gifts, and then we had brunch - sausages, scrambled eggs, English muffins.  The guys had already dipped into the sticky buns and Chex mix while opening gifts, so after that we were all content.

Chris went home to take a nap, and, after walking Max, we just sat around the read for most of the day.  It was good to talk with family on the phone in between.  A nice quiet Christmas!  Hope yours was, too!
