Even a White Christmas can't get us down =) Thursday night we made it to all three services at church and enjoyed a houseful at dinner time. Friday morning when we woke up there was close to 8 inches on the ground and there was a blizzard warning in effect for most of Nebraska. Brian picked up my mom and his parents and brought everyone over for breakfast and presents. We had a great time and got some lovely and thoughtful gifts. In the afternoon we shuttled everyone back to their homes and picked up Jeff for dinner at Jim and Becky's house. It was a GREAT meal with a standing rib roast and then Erik, Jeff, Jim and I did dishes and watched a movie while Brian and Becky drove David to work and dropped off dinner at grandma and grandpa's house.
Saturday we got Erik ready for his trip to San Diego and in the middle of the night on Sunday we took him to Southeast and watched the bus get loaded. They landed without any excitement and seem to be having a great time. Sunday night we enjoyed Christmas with grandma and grandpa, Brian's Aunt Jenny and Uncle Brent, Jim, Becky, Jeff, David and his cousin Jessie, her boyfriend and his son. We laughed and ate and opened and enjoyed time with our families until it was time to get ready for bed.
As of last night, the official snow report for Lincoln is 12.8 inches and there's another storm scheduled for Wednesday. In December we've had 21 inches of snowfall, and unfortunately most of it is still on the ground. If you're coming to visit bring boots and a parka... we'll take care of the rest!
