Its Christmas Eve!!!

We decided to drive up into the mountains a bit and see the guy who sits on the side of the road with his horse. Today he was dressed as Santa with his horse playing a reindeer. As we headed out we were sure we'd miss him. There was rain and ice drops and snow.

But when we turned the corner there he was, snow blowing all around him. We parked and made our way over to say hello, took some photos, and pet his sweet horse. Her fur was cold and wet but she was such a loving girl, pushing her nose to me for more scratches.

I didn't bother to dress for snow because we didn't think there'd be so much. I even forgot my gloves! We were all freezing and headed back to the warm car asap!

The drive back was just as pretty, a mix of snow flurries, rain, clouds, fog, and sun. Once we were back in town we stopped by a grocery store for a few last minute things. The view of the snow covered mountains in the distance between the palm trees in the parking lot was stunning.

After we got back home we made basically corn flake rice krispie treats and salted caramel brownies. We watched Home Alone 2, read The Polar Express, and watched a bit of Its A Wonderful Life before bed.
Since my actual Christmas photo will of course be posted super late, Merry Christmas, happy Hanukkah, and happy holidays to all of my wonderful friends here on 365!

I hope each and every one of you has a wonderful day full of happiness.
