Christmas Eve

We had a nice, quiet Christmas Eve, for the most part. After several weeks of lots of work and little sleep, Dave's numerous ailments led him to the doctor, who gave him some powerful drugs. Great stocking stuffer! :) Emma and I made some sugar cookies together. In the late afternoon we brought some treats to friends. We had chili for dinner (Emma's favorite), watched a Christmas movie, and read the picture-book version of the Christmas story. (We must cater to our audience, after all).

Outside the snow actually WAS blowing! We hope to live in Texas for a while but we will probably not see that again. I took some pictures to document, then Dave and I settled in front of "It's a Wonderful Life" to wrap presents. With only 2 little girls, both of whom were completely without expectations, it only took an hour.

I am amazed at all the snow you guys have had this winter, but what's Christmas without snow, right?! I just think 'Old Man Winter' missed when Christmas ended :)
