We had a wonderful, crazy Christmas!
It started snowing around 7:30 am before the kids got up. I was so glad; I wanted them to have a white Christmas. And it continued to snow and snow and snow.
We started dinner around 1:00, almost had everything done and the power went out. Being the resourceful people we are, :), we finished everything on the stove top (gas), lit candles and had dinner.
We bought Christmas crackers, which came the day before Christmas from over the pond. We opened them before dinner and agreed that this should be a new tradition in the Queen household. They are quite fun with little prizes inside along with a paper crown and a joke.

Everyone got a paper crown in their cracker.

Then some fun in the snow, all 12 inches of it!! I don't think I have ever seen this much snow. Everything is stunning.

A winter wonderland... did I mention that I love where we live.
