Our Minnesota Christmas
So much snow. Quite cold. Seth said it felt like we lived in Bedford Falls. A new tradition born at Kruger’s Christmas Tree Farm. Sledding. Ice skating at Rice Park in St. Paul, and a discovery of Candy Land, where we all had our first taste of sugar plums. They have been dancing in our heads ever since. Hot chocolate. Jars and jars of caramel corn. (Follow this recipe and your tastebuds will never be the same again.) A quiet Christmas Eve of pizza (because all the Chinese restaurants were closed) and the Christmas Story reenactment, complete with a drummer boy (his idea), a wise man who took his role very seriously, and a renegade shepherd. A gathering around the piano where Our! Boys! Accompanied! Us! Singing!
And a Christmas morning that rolled out as gently as falling snow. Christmas 2010 was picture perfect.
