A good time was had by all

I am not sure if I mentioned before, but we did our Christmas yesterday....the day after. It makes it so much easier on Lorelei. She has so many people to visit, that it is more fun to wait and just have her the day after. It is easier on her mommy and daddy, too, because she is in a much better mood.
She was just a happy little girl yesterday, and kept us all entertained. Just busy all the time. She has to check out Shelby every so often....and that is okay as long as Shelby knows she is coming....not that she would hurt Lorelei on purpose, but she does not hear anything at all...and Lorelei does not cause enough vibration in the floor to warn if she is startled she jumps up. And then there is the possibility of her stepping on Lorelei.
As you can probably tell by these last two photos, she is a born mom. She is just so gentle with Lorelei.
We finally got some snow today....we have been having flurries the past few days but it never amounted to more than a skim of snow. Now we have 3 inches, or maybe 4. Believe it or not, we went to Terre Haute this morn, thinking it was only going to be flurries again. I took my camera with me.

On the way home, I mentioned going by Green Valley, just to see. It snowed harder and harder for a while, and everything was slick as could be. We were on country roads so only passed 3 or 4 cars...nothing was happening at Green Valley. We did not see anything moving at all, so continued on in a round about way that we have went before. We finally saw a flock of turkeys that were too far away to even attempt to photograph.
This is when it first began to really see a bit more be sure and visit my other blog. We did make it home safe and sound, glad to get here. We had leftovers--always the best part of holiday meals.

I bet it was tons of fun having Christmas with Lorelei around :-) Glad you made it home safe in the snow.

Oh I'm so jealous that you got snow. I heard the same thing from your brother. It's clear and cold here...

Lorelei is just precious. You are smart to spread out her Christmas. That is HARD on little ones.. As my friend Judy said about her grands, they enjoyed the wrapping paper and the boxes more than the gifts!!! ha

That's a smart way to do Christmas the day after! The pictures of Lorelei are great as usual. I like the bridge with the start of the snow.

If you get too much snow Betsy would like you to send some down here for her. Just make sure it lands in the yard and not on the driveway where I have to shovel it!
It looks as if you had a great time with Lorelei. Having Christmas the day after is certainly worthwhile.

We're getting snow today. Not enough to shovel, though.

The photos of Lorelei and Shelby are absolutely precious! I bet Lorelei had a wonderful Christmas. ;-)

Awww! It's good to hear you all had a great Christmas & I'm so glad you got to spend it w/ baby L!

We got a skim of snow Christmas morning here in town, but my parents only got flurries, no accumulation!

We drove from Ohio to Iowa today and I couldn't believe all the cars that were wrecked on I-80. Usually they are sitting in the ditch, but today we say a car on its side, another that had been a 3-car accident and one of the cars had the roof ripped off (by the rescue crew, presumably) and so on. It must have been a heck of a snowstorm. I'm glad we missed it, but my car was iced to the spot when I got home. I had to work to free it. So glad Christmas was peaceful and playful. :)
