We've spent the last week with my parents in Bixby, OK where we had our first White Christmas! 8 inches of fantastic white powder... what a great way to spend Christmas day. Becca and Lucas brought their two doggies and they quickly became our reindeer as we sat on an old snowboard. So much fun!
Snowy weather is wonderful...but only as long as you're NOT DRIVING.
We went skiing with Chris' family and the Vanaman's before Christmas this year, and when we heard about the winter storm warning, decided to take off for Tulsa the evening of the 22nd (to beat the weather). This resulted in the longest most nerve-racking 12 hours of my life! AND WE DIDN'T EVEN MAKE IT ALL THE WAY THERE! At 6am on the 23rd we were still 5 hours from our destination, but just had to call it quits and sleep for a bit. (4 hours to be exact) Then we made it the rest of the way and had a lovely time (and caught up on some sleep).
I don't think either of us is to eager to visit Kansas anytime soon.
We're now back in the Dallas/Fort Worth for Christmas with the Lee's and to bring in the New Year! It has been really neat for me and Chris to celebrate with each other's families this year! Love it!
