Baptism= my first gift of the day.
We awoke to a foggy and grey looking Christmas morning. But the spirit of Christmas transformed grey into magical the way the frost and fog transformed the landscape into breathtaking beauty. We were on our way to the lake for the afternoon, and Rick handed me his camera to shoot.
None of these photos were shot in black and white, this is entirely what it looked like our entire drive to Park Rapids- picture postcard perfect! Hello, gift number three.
The boys quickly discovered Grandma and Grandpa had a manmade sledding hill via the side walk leading down to the house. Lack of snow gear didn't deter all three boys from taking turns on the sled.
Nolan's ride ended with a huge crash into the snowbanks at the end of his ride... how very Nolan-like it was.
Colton squealed all the way down the hill but the huge grin on his face told me it was more fun than not.
Its true, my (tongue in cheek) Christmas wish list didn't materialize, in the way one would think. No, I'd say what I received was even better. The mindful presence of my every day abundance and the bounty of my blessings. And what did you receive for Christmas?
