It really doesn’t take much effort to have a wonderful evening after the first snowfall. I made a big kettle of beef vegetable soup, Mr. B brought in the firewood, Christmas gifts are being wrapped and a fire in the fireplace. The Christmas tree is lit, the overhead lights are lowered and IT IS TIME FOR A FOOTBALL GAME. OH, NO!
It has been so peaceful sitting with my favorite man on the sofa and hearing the wood crackling and sending out heat in the family room. A cup of warm cocoa out of a big white coffee cup and the evening couldn’t be better.
I peeked out the front window and the nativity scene in the front yard looks so pretty against the white snow. We don’t want anyone to forget that the celebration is all about a baby born in a manger and named Jesus.
You can’t go out an buy an evening like this one.
