We haven't taken that many pictures in the last couple of days as we have been getting everything ready for Christmas. We will have some cute pics over the next couple of days. We are planning on going to church today - as long as it doesn't get canceled. We woke up this morning to more snow - and it is still falling. My boy is napping a little - he gets grumpy when he doesn't get enough sleep.

Yesterday we made it into town to do some last minute shopping. We met up with my parents and my sister and her boys for lunch. We though we had timed it right, but Thomas had a total meltdown at Wendy's. He was so tired he did not know what to do. Josh was able to rock him to sleep and he napped for 3 hours. He has started taking one long afternoon nap - and when he does he is usually pretty happy afterward.

Then, we went to the Canfield's for dinner. They have a long, crazy driveway and we drove up from the bottom of the hill rather than try to slide down from the top. We got about half way up the hill and then lost it. Mike came down to help and he and Josh put the chains on the truck. We backed up and took another run at the hill and made it up. Josh is a really good driver in the snow and we are grateful that we have a 4WD. I bought chains for the truck several years ago and we have never used them - even on trips up to the mountains in the snow, but we have made great use out of them over the last couple of days.

We will be busy with family for the next two days, but before it all starts, I wanted to take a minute to say - Merry Christmas everybody! Hope you all have a wonderful couple of days with loved ones!
