359 - White Christmas!

We were surprised to see little snowflakes mixed with rain on our way to Newberg this morning. We thought, "It won't stick." Well, it didn't stick on the Willamette Valley floor, but it did at Grandmother's house since it is about 200 feet above sea level! Perched on the side of her hill we overlooked her front acre of evergreens as we ate our Christmas lunch. It continued to fall throughout the meal! After lunch, George and Paul went outside and built a snow man! It was magical since we had not even dreamed of having a White Christmas! We haven't had snow at Christmas for about fifteen years. This picture of the little evergreen tree was my favorite shot of all and taken by my guest photog, George. :)

There's something magical about a white Christmas, isn't there? Even knowing Christ wasn't born in a snow-covered environment in the midst of December. The beauty of a snowy landscape calms my soul. It's odd, but there seems to be a pattern around here of getting some snow in late November/early December and then maybe again in January, but almost never at Christmas. Go figure! I'm glad you got that special treat, Carol.
