We have a pretty strict no-Christmas-until-after-Thanksgiving policy in our family. A rule that we have been a teensy bit lax on the last few days.
How can a Mother put the kabosh on an impromptu round of "Jingle Bells" started by a 2 1/2 year old while driving in the car through falling flakes of snow? She can't... simple as that.
And she also can't stop the weather from creating positively Christmas-y displays of natural light strings either.
Just a few more days... are you hanging in there with me, or have you already begun to celebrate?
By the way, these photos were taken a few days ago, before the snow. Today we are hovering around 23 degrees outside with nasty, frozen, dangerous driving conditions. So once again, we are staying in. If you are (still) waiting on an order, I am so very sorry... we are hopeful that tomorrow will bring safer driving conditions. Out here in the woods we are left mostly to ourselves when the roads get bad. No snow plows or de-icers, just 4 wheel drive, grit & determination.
