Stephanie didn't come home for Christmas this year, so it was just Megan and me.
On Christmas Eve, Megan, my mom, and I went to vespers at church. After church we went home and had a great dinner! I made Cornish hens, and my mom made green bean casserole, squash casserole, and rolls.
After dinner, we exchanged gifts.
Early, early Christmas morning, I drove my mom to the airport. She flew up north to see Stephanie and my mom's family. When we left home, it started to snow!
And snowed and snowed! It was the most snow we had gotten in years. I texted Megan to wake her up and told her about the snow. She was so excited! When Megan was ready, I picked her up and drove to my dad's house.
It normally takes me 30 minutes to get to my dad's house, but in the snow it took an hour! Alabamians do not know how to drive in the snow, so there was lots of craziness. It was my first time driving in the snow, and I think I did pretty well. I'm so glad we took my huge SUV instead of Megan's little car. Along the way, we stopped at two farms and took some pictures of the snow.
When we got to my dad's house, we ate brunch and opened gifts. I got a laptop and Megan got internet TV.
After we opened gifts, my dad started baking lots of bread (he got a new bread machine), and Megan built a snowman. Holly tried to help.
Christmas was so fun, and the snow made it even better!
