This year the winter weather hit Ohio quite early….we had snow around Thanksgiving and that is very unusual! The Christmas season came and went very quickly but we were not lacking in the cold/snow department. I am amazed what a little tiny snowflake can do to the feeling of Christmas. Although it didn’t actually snow on Christmas day we had snow on Christmas eve. It felt like a gift all in itself that Christmas had arrived and we were to stop and enjoy the peacefulness that the snowfall resembles.
