Christmas week

We braved the wind and snow Monday to visit the Museum of Idaho's current exhibits (Olde Fashioned Christmas & Winter Festivals):

It was fun to see Nativity sets from around the world, a variety of gingerbread houses, and displays for Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, and Winter Solstice.

On Christmas Eve we had some Middle Eastern food for dinner, and then dressed up for our own Nativity reading/reenactment.

It has been snowing all week until today! We received about a foot more snow after this picture was taken. The big kids are loving all the snow and have been sledding, digging tunnels, making snow angels and throwing snowballs. I'm loving the bright sunlight we have today, and I'm grateful for the time I get to spend with my husband and children right now.

Happy holidays and best wishes for the new year to one and all!
