walkin' in a winter wonderland

We decided to go and find some snow.

Turns out that just over 2 hours from the house,

there is plenty of ice-encrusted snow.

The children were more than delighted.

Nate was delighted to glimpse some wintery birds (who wouldn't be delighted at a prospect like that?!)

We spent Christmas Eve Eve in Prescott, AZ (which is called Arizona's Christmas City)

We got our Christmas on.

The next morning (Christmas Eve), we headed back up into the mountains. Lo and behold we found more snow.

The children helped finish a snowman.

It was dang cold. Like 32ish degrees.

Hats were employed.

Hogwarts scarves were also donned.

An attempt at angels were made; however, once the snow is ice-encrusted an angel is hard to come by.

We had to travel up this high:

But it was well worth it.

Stay tuned, more Christmas posts to come (including Nate's incredible Christmas sweater - YIKES!)
