a white christmas


Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas!Jed and I drove to Iowa last week right before the snow storm hit (literally minutes before)! I wasn't counting on a white Christmas this year since it really did not look as if it would snow. Our weather in the midwest has been pretty strange and it was kind of hard for me to get in the Christmas spirit this year. But we were pleasantly surprised to find a blanket of snow on the ground the morning after we arrived at my parents' house. I really miss my home in Iowa, with all the space and beautiful scenery. I wanted to be sure and take some pictures while there was still snow on the ground. I'm sharing a few pictures from our Christmas last week as well as a few photos from Christmas with our families. It has been a wonderful break for us here. We get to spend a few more days in Iowa after the holidays and I'm looking forward to seeing some friends while we're here. Wishing you all a very happy Christmas! xoxo
