After 5 days of snow, rain, ice, ice, more ice, and grey skies the sun rose for us this Christmas Day. It was nothing short of spectacular. The kids are all still nursing fevers and cough, but I sneaked out for a few minutes of breath taking beauty (and fresh air). Despite their illness it has been a low key, sweet kind of holiday with no one too sick to play a bit and eat too much sugar.
We are of the fortunate few who lost power for only a day, while many of our relatives and neighbors are without power going on 4 days now. It has been a hard, cold holiday for many in our area. We feel fortunate to be enjoying the beauty of the ice from a warm home, with all of the conveniences of electricity. Hope you are keeping warm where ever you are.
