The presents have been opened, the peppermint schnapps spiked hot chocolate has been drunk, the tree skirt is empty, and yet the snow is still here! I hope everyone had a lovely holiday and has been relaxing with family and of course gorging on some Christmas cookies! I wanted to share some pictures from my Minnesota jaunt and the most crazy story of the holiday!

we’re serious card players, this was my hand for widow whist
Winston grabbed a few Christmas cookies…
On Christmas Eve I went to mass with my Aunt & Uncle and cousins and they dropped me off back at my grandparents’ house. My grandparents and my mom were at a different service so I ran up to the house and it was locked. I have no idea where a spare key was, my phone was dead, and it was getting dark. Oh did I mention is was 20 BELOW ZERO at this point. The service my grandparents and mom were at was about a mile away so zipped up my down coat that makes me look like the Michelin man, put up the hood, thanked God I put boots on and not heels, and walked over to the church. Yall not only was my butt frozen but everything was frozen. Well I am alive but I’ve got a dang good story to tell!
