A Wonderful Christmas

This Christmas was very different for Aaron and me. We usually hop on a plane and head south to sunny Arizona. However, we decided that this year was not going to work out for us. So, we stayed home and my parents and brother came up to rainy Portland for a Northwest Christmas. Unlike any other year before, we had snow, snow, and more snow. It looked alot like Flagstaff out side, minus the snow plows, and it was sure beautiful. However, it was dangerous and derailed many a plan for people in the area. But God had us in His hands. My parents drove up and made it in one piece and we had a very comfy, calm, and quiet Christmas.

The highlight of the trip, for me, was going out to Multnomah falls on Christmas Day. There was still a great deal of snow at the falls and the site is something we may never see again, unless we get another blizzard. It remined me of fairytale; so white and serene. It was beautiful.

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and are looking forward to the New Year. God Bless and here are some pictures from our Christmas.

Lauren,

I had heard that you guys had snow there!

My husband and oldest daughter hiked up to Multnomah Falls when she lived in Portland. I love Portland and miss being able to go there. I am REALLY glad that they live here now, however.
