If we're going to be living in a place with a long winter, I said to Mr. Red House, we'd better have snow for Christmas!
So far this December we've had an ice storm and a couple good snowstorms that have dumped over a foot of snow at our house. This has been rather exciting for us after living in North Carolina for so long! My kids love playing in the snow and have declared that they want to live here forever.

Of course, all the snow melted just in time for Christmas.

My family who came up from Georgia hoping for a white Christmas was rather disappointed, as was I. On the day after Christmas, however, the sky was full of big fluffy snowflakes.
We are enjoying our belated white Christmas, and I hope you all and your families are enjoying the Christmas season as well, no matter what color it is outside. I hope you all are staying safe out there!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from the Red House Garden!
