This was the scene outside out front door last night. Sleet and drizzle followed by snow. We decided to postpone Christmas Eve with my Mom and Step-Dad until this weekend due to hazardous driving. The three of us had a quiet little Christmas Eve of a few gifts and some good food and sweet treats. I was feeling rather sad about the change of events - snow, ice, no family, etc. But, then I heard The Bean sort of sigh as he looked out the window and said, "I've never had a White Christmas before" and BAM that knocked me back to reality. He was happy - he was making a memory. For the first Christmas in his entire life he gets to stay home, play that new Wii all day and be with his family and his cats in his own house. He is happy as a clam making a memory he will always remember He loves our normal Christmas festivities, but I know he will always remember this one because it was a little different. I am happy that at the age of 14 he is still happy to be here and enjoy us and his first White Christmas.
Until we can see the street again - we'll be inside our warm cozy house bowling and playing tennis and golf. Wii are going to have a fun day!
