What goes well with snow......

What goes well with snow.......let's see.......a magical carriage ride, a child's birthday. ice cream cake and grandkids.  It doesn't get better than this.  One family is missing but not in spirit.  We will treasure these memories forever.  One granddaughter made up a sweet song about the real meaning of Christmas.  The words were something like,"It's not about the presents, it's about the family."  Ahhhhhh, how sweet it is.

What a perfect birthday. I love the beautiful pictures of your family. Love that white carriage.

How sweet of your little granddaughter composing a song and she's right, it's not about presents, it's about family.

Wishing you all the best for 2013
Hugs,

That's so nice Debby! Isn't this snow so pretty! It still looks like someone dumped powdered sugar all over us even a week later. Just got all the decorations put away today. The holidays were pretty good this year considering the family situation. I am thankful for everything in my life. Happy 2013 to you!~Hugs, Patti

That looks like a great time, Debby! When my son was here, we went into Cincy and did a horse drawn ride {one of those bigger wagons}. My granddaughter was enthralled with the "cows". We kept telling her horse, but . . . : )
