What I love about winter. . .

Warming my hands on a mug of hot chocolate

Listening to Christmas music

Hot showers on a cold morning

Wearing my warm fuzzy socks

Making cookies with my kids

Snowball fights with my oldest son even when there's only a 1/4 inch of snow on the ground

Wearing zip up hoodies and my knock-off Ugg boots

Christmas shopping to find the perfect gift

Singing Christmas Carols at a nursing home (love it when their faces light up and they sing along!)

Helping others when they least expect it

Snuggling under my favorite blanket (thanks Tammy!) and watching SYTYCD

What are your favorite things about this season?

Not too bad

While we were at Kansas at my brother's house we attempted to get family pictures of all of us. Here is the best one. Not great but at least we are all smiling. : )
