Magical Winter Snow

The kids tried their best to wait up for Santa - there were noises heard, tip toeing down the stairs, and cookies gobbled. We left Santa a plate of cookies that all the kids helped me make. In the morning there was a little dusting of snow, a white Christmas after all. Family came over, presents were unwrapped, and the kids got everything on their wishlist and more. They must have been really nice this year.
Then yesterday the snow came in! Lots and lots of snow. A good 6 inches or more - snowman making snow. The kids got all bundled in snow suits and played. As the snow was falling all you could hear was neighborhood children laughing and screaming, having a snowball fight. I made homemade hot cocoa (not the kind in the packet) and welcomed the red nosed children back inside to warm up. Today we take down our tree and reclaim the living room. This was the perfect way to end the year.

What a wonderful Christmas, in your new home. The house looks amazing and I love your little table cloth with the bambi embroidery. Happy New Year to you all from a very rainy Winchester in the south of England.
