Change of plans...

As I mentioned in my last post, we have been debating going to Oregon for Christmas. That was the plan, but we decided yesterday that it was too risky. Boy am I glad we stayed around town. Yesterday, I went to the mall with my parents to do some last minute Christmas shopping. While we were there, it started to snow. We came home and Andrew and I threw our necessities into the car. We made the journeyed across town to my parents' home, where we plan to stay through Christmas. They live in a decommissioned fire station in Manette. The view from here is amazing! Below are some pictures Andrew took from the living room window. Last night, we went to Mass and picked my brother up. When we got home we all decorated the Christmas tree. Up to this point, my parents did not have a tree because of our plans to be out of town. But now we have one up and decorated.

Now we are all snuggled up in the fire station, watching the snow continue to fall. It is so nice to not have to travel. I am quite content with our decision to stay =)

  1. I is nice to be home and safe...just makes me worried when people try to drive in this weather. I still haven't seen your parents place, would love to...have heard such neat things about it! I think it is great timing for snow right now, makes people maybe put this season into perspective...even though I still have things "to do" before Christmas, if it doesn't get done...well just trying to tell myself it really doesn't matter...
