Everyone wishes for a white Christmas! The odds of having one in Tidewater Virginia is pretty dang slim! This year, we were forcasted to have some flurries on Christmas afternoon! We were excited. As it turned out, our flurries progressed into a big ole' storm!! Here are some pictures we took of our winter wonderland.
Our backyard and driveway
Ian measured, by 4pm he measured 15.5 inches!!! This beats last January's snow fall!

December 2010 had so many activities that I will only include a few pictures, the very best ones, in this blog entry. John was home for the Holidays and that's always nice! A lot more help in preparing for dinner and decorations! With so much going on between BoyScouts, work, and commitments, I didn't get out our Christmas cards. This is the first year I wasn't on my game. It's been one heck of a year and I have to say, a lot has happened and I am ready to begin a new stable and prosperous new year! I'll be ready next December!!
December marked Ben's Eagle Ceremony! If you know anything of Boy Scouts, this is the highest achievement in Boy Scouts and one to mark with honor and celebration. Arrick was honored to preside over the ceremony. John and I were so proud. Ian and Matt were the color guard while Ben, in dark hair in the center was the Eagle recipient.

For many years we have gone to Jamestown on Thanksgiving while our turkey cooked and just allowed us time to enjoy the fresh air. This year, Arrick had to work so we stayed close to home and went to the beach!
This year the Boy Scout Troop worked with their sponoring VFW and placed American Flags on all veteran graves. It was truly awe inspiring to see how many veterans were in that cemetary. So many men and women helped keep our country safe all these years.
