Kris: Well the day started with a white awakening. Overnight we got about 6 inches of snow. Here's a pictures of my front patio showing the snow depth.
Since we knew the snow would slow our driving a bit we scurried out the door and up to Mark's to take care of the dogs. Here's him shoveling our way up the front steps.
We got the dogs outside and fed, then Mark and I had to get busy with food prep for both today at my family's house and tomorrow's at his family's Christmas. He made deviled eggs...
I worked on a cream cheese dip
And we put up most of the Christmas decorations at my house since the dogs like to eat them. But Mark showed me today that he has this cute little "tree in a bubble" on his side table that they seem to leave alone.
Mark: I just got this out the day before, I saw it when I was getting the wrapping paper out and decided I was going to have at least one Christmas decoration out.
So we got to my parent's house in time to make the popovers for brunch/lunch. After lunch we cracked open a fantastic red wine my sister, Deb, brought. Here is her showing off glass #1
Mid-afternoon is started to snow again. It was the big, fluffy flakes. Between that and the pine trees full of snow, I felt it was a great opportunity for a picture out on the deck. Thought it turned out pretty well but my hair was soaked by time we got back inside. Still worth it :)
Mark: I like this picture! Merry Christmas!
Got a few pictures in front of the tree. The only way to get Onyx the cat to sit still was to drag his climber into the living room.
And here I sit typing the blog to finish the night. We will likely report back again after tomorrow's Christmas with Mark's family. Really hoping the next round of snow that is expected doesn't completely mess up driving.
