let it snow, let it snow, let it snow...

after the first big snowfall

For the first time since 1971, all of Canada will be having a white Christmas.

We have had three big dumps of snow so far this year. The first was last Wednesday, then a really big one this past Sunday and now today.

We managed to get out between snow falls and get all our groceries and last minute shopping done so we can sit back, relax and enjoy the next few days without having to worry about going anywhere.

We have been invited to our friends (and close neighbours) for Christmas dinner, so all we have to do is pop on our boots and coats and walk three doors down our driveway to their place. All our family who were travelling have made it safely to their destinations. I have a girlfriend who is supposed to fly to the interior of BC this afternoon, so I hope she makes it to the airport and her flight doesn't get cancelled (fingers crossed).

Here are some pictures of our area over the past week.

Happy holidays to all!
