Merry Christmas!

We have had a beautiful Christmas season, filled with apple cider, cozy fires, savory soups and, of course, tons of snow!  We are going strong with about 14 inches of lovely snow!  Our house looks so cozy covered in a soft, white blanket.

On Saturday, my hubby decided he wanted to build a legit igloo.  So along with my cousins, we geared up in our warmest weather-proof clothes and worked for hours straight to achieve this:

My cousin and I worked for about 4 hours on the igloo, and we finally got tired out.  But Levi and my cousin’s hub kept working until 10 p.m. that night!  It turned out pretty awesome though, so definitely worth it.  That thing is definitely not going anywhere too!  I can see us celebrating Valentine’s Day inside that igloo :).  It’s about 5 ft. tall and probably 8 ft. across.  Amazing!

Last thing I’ll post for today, I’ve been getting into making pies.  This was my most recent creation, and I think it turned out quite perfect.  It sure was delicious too!

I hope everyone has a Christ-filled Christmas.  Stay warm and enjoy those you love the most!  Merry Christmas!
