It's hard to look back on Christmas 2008 without mentioning the huge amount of snow we had this year! It hardly ever snows in Vancouver, and having a white Christmas is even rarer. But this year we definitely had our fill (I was done with it before Christmas even started, but almost everyone had had enough by New Years!). There were big snowfalls the week before Christmas, and then again right around Christmas (the 24th, 25th, and 26th).

It's fun to see how much fun Amanda has in the snow, but I admit to being a snow grouch...I get really stressed out about having to go places in the snow. I would love to be able to enjoy it more when it comes, since it's so infrequent around here!

Here are a few photos...

A foot and a half of snow already, and it's just Christmas Eve! We had probably another foot by the time it was all over.
Lots of Snow!

A classic winter scene - boots and mittens drying by the fireplace:

There was so much snow that Jeff built this little snow slide (complete with stairs) for Amanda:

Beautiful - Christmas lights under snow:
