This year, we get to spend Christmas Day with my brothers and their families. That puts all 9 cousins in one house at the same time. All of the children are excited about getting to play together, but none are as vocal about it as Amy. “After we open presents, we’re going to make a snowman and have a snowball fight and go sledding.” No amount of explanation can convince Amy that Christmas will not be a winter wonderland. Let’s hope she’s too distracted by the noisy chaos to notice the southern weather on Christmas Day. We might be wearing shorts and we might be carrying umbrellas, but the odds of a blanket of white on the ground are somewhere between slim and none.

You could all head up here instead. There could very well be snow for Christmas. And as it stands now we will be enjoying the chaos of the nine cousins with you and a non-white Christmas. Look forward to seeing you all.
Did you see the news tonight? Louisians, Texas and many southern states are getting a freak snowstorm which is headed your way.
I don’t care for white Christmas, but, living in the snow belt, will probably have one. I don’t like anything about the snow – walking in it, driving in it, shoveling it, or the fact that our dog confuses the deck with the backyard when it is covered with snow, and does his business all over the “poop deck”. I’d gladly give our snow away if anybody wants to come and get it.
