Merry Christmas!

"She will bear a Son; and you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins."

My wish came true! We got loads of snow yesterday and last is sooooo WONDERFUL!! And it couldn't have come on a more perfect week. I couldn't resist taking some pictures of it since it IS, after all, an answer to my secret prayer for snow on Christmas. :)

It started as a frosty coating of ice on all surfaces, even the spider webs!

Then it started to snow and transformed Bready and Sollus hill into a winter wonderland.

We had to take Mariah out on a walk to experience her first snow. Not sure she was really able to appreciate it under all those layers!
It was beautiful and this morning there is even more snow! I am loving it. Thank you Lord! Such a heavenly Christmas present!

I think this picture sums up what Mariah thinks of it all!
Wide-eyed wonder...

Winter time!'

It finally feels like winter in Ireland. Yesterday we woke up to a very frosty day and even had ice on the windshield before going to church! It reminded me of Minnesota, so I really didn't mind at all. I do miss the snow though!
