A White Christmas...just in time!

First of all, I would like to wish everyone the happiest of Holidays. Once again Wanda and I made the full circut of parents, all three sets. It was absolutely wonderful to have the time to spend with each of the families. Plus the fact that that means I got to enjoy 3 great holiday meals, ranging from Ham, to a Crown Roast of Pork, to Goose. We were even blessed with a White Christmas at the last moment. Originally, they had said no White Christmas, but by Christmas Eve day they were calling for flurries. Later that night and 4 inches later the weather changed their forcast to say that we would wake up with 8-10 inches, and that is exactly what happened. Though snow is a trivial point to Christmas (the truly important thing is spending time with loved ones), I love snow and it just seems to help to make the day seem that more cozy and homey. Luckily, the plows were working overtime (bummer for them) and Wanda and I were able to take off from my parents at noon to make it to another set of her parents just in time for another holiday dinner. I don't think I am going to eat for a week!!!!!!:bounce: :bounce:

Happy holidays to you and yours, Pete! It sounds like you have been having delightful family gatherings.

We were in Florida when you got your snowfall, but there wasn't any where we live either (outside Milwaukee). We seem to be in a band that misses most of the major snowstorms and tornadoes.

Despite Nancy's opinion, I LOVE SNOW!!! I can't get enough! I can say that because we have the kind of roof you don't have to shovel; my husband loves playing with this honkin' big snowblower/tractor; and I have a well-stocked pantry and freezer. I would think snow in Wyoming is more of a problem than where I live, though.

Goose! Wish I could have been there. I had thought about a prune-stuffed goose for new years, but have been asked to make turkey instead. Hrumph....
