Snowing

Holy wow look outside!  More snow falling.  I hope it snows on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.  I think as I have gotten older that is one of the special treats I enjoy the most is snow for Christmas.  Without it for me is almost like July 4th without fireworks.  Sure you can still celebrate and go through the motions but snow makes it all perfect.  Often people talk about going away somewhere warm for Christmas.  Don’t get me wrong I would love a trip to Hawaii as much as anyone but NOT on Christmas.  I would be more inclined to go somewhere that I knew would have snow.  Winter brings such wonderful things.  We get hot chocolate, blankets to snuggle, swap of the seasonal wardrobe and some shopping to freshen it up.  I love sweaters by the way.  i love to read by my fireplace and stay warm.  I so love tubing and snow angels and making snowmen and snowball fights!  Going to try snow shoeing this year as my new adventure.  I even like using the snowblower.  Fun to shoot the snow so far with a machine!  A couple of fun hints.  For the bestest hot chocolate around.  The Chocolate in Orem, Yogurt Bliss in Spanish Fork or Pleasant Grove, and Christophers in Salt Lake.  All Heavenly.  I am kind of a hot chocolate snob so trust me on this.  For the absolute best pie in the world visit the Wild Mustang in Orem.  i love treats at Christmas time.  It is totally fine if you mix it in with some running.  Enjoy the holidays and the joys of winter.  It’s a blessed time.

  1. My ex-wife couldn’t fathom why Christmas wasn’t Christmas in California. There’s a reason why snow is ubiquitous with everything Christmas. Tim Allen’s character was nuts to think escaping on a tropical cruise, was the way to go in Christmas with the Kranks. I’ve had a go with snow blowers=saves your shoulders, back, hamstrings and wrists (lol). A hot chocolate snob/connoisseur? I’ll have to remember that for my Christmas shopping list this year.
