Let the wind blow, the snow fall!

We are expecting wild and woolly weather today. We may just get a rare, rare, rare white Oklahoma Christmas. But we are battened and hatched and warm and shopped and ready for it!

Yesterday the girls decorated cookies.

I think they did a great job.

Last night we went to dinner at the Spaghetti Warehouse in Brick Town

and then went to the Mannheim Steamroller concert.

I was disappointed in the concert. The music was good but there was no real show and the liquid light show really dated the experience. We left at intermission.

We enjoyed being downtown though. Bricktown is such a wonderful place. Downtown Oklahoma City is wonderful and this time of year it is especially beautiful. If it wasn't 40 degrees I think we would have taken a carriage ride.

If you bundle up good, providing there is no wind, a carriage ride is great in winter. Especially if there is a mug of hot cocoa in hand.
Did the Christmas box arrive from us?

Some awesome cookies! I love the photography!

Merry, Merry Christmas to you and your family!

Merry Christmas! Hope you and your family have a lovely day! I love your photos. It's so nice to see how others are celebrating.

We will have a rare white Christmas too (in Michigan). We had to borrow some warm clothes. My daughter got to make her first snowball at 15!

sorry you didn't enjoy the concert Joan; we saw them when we still lived in Montana, I'm thinking about 5-6 years ago. They did a really nice job. They had set up this village with lots of animation and characters that came to life during intermission or when the group wasn't playing; it was really festive

glad you enjoyed your time together as a family enjoying a good dinner out and some sites of your city

yum on the cookies; they do look very delicious and the girls did a great job decorating and baking them

Merry Christmas

Due to the weather yesterday our internet was down. We heard on the news that OKC received record breaking amounts of snow. It's wonderful to have a white Christmas. The snow here this morning is beautiful. The only bad thing is our country roads are almost totally impassable so we won't make it to my MIL's for dinner. I feel bad for my husband but it will be ok. Christmas is more than a date on the calendar and we'll share it with his family when we can. Blessings to you and your family this Christmas Day!
