my family and i are now in new mexico for christmas! we drove in yesterday, the 22nd, and tonight we will hang out with auntie steph, and tomorrow is christmas eve and the day after tomorrow is…. CHRISTMAS! and, also, it’s snowing! or was. lovely large flakes (unromantic word… how about fluffs?) falling from the sky. this clara and i woke up to uncle david making coffee, and then clara sits up and is like “look out the window! it’s snowing!” so i do, and of course, it is. and it’s beautiful! after waking up more, we bundled up and went outside. we made snow angels, and snow flowers, and a snow man. and then auntie steph drove up in her new car, which we didn’t recognize, honked at us, and we ate breakfast with her and stuff. she brought reindeer antlers, and chocolate. and then mom and dad and amy and melissa came out, and we had a lovely giant snowball fight. we all threw snowballs at dad, because he was the worst, or best, at hitting us. getting hit on the behind with a rock hard snowball hurts. but, i got him back. and when i had my little digital camera and film slr, i was immune from getting hit by snowballs. it was great.
