This year we decided to stay in town for Christmas. We want a chance to make our own memories, and we want Savannah to have some memories of Christmas in our house. We’ll still go be with family in Orlando, just not every year.
I have to admit, I’m glad that we chose *this* year, because we got a white Christmas here in Atlanta!! It’s my first white Christmas, and it’s the first time Atlanta has seen any measurable accumulation since 1882 (which was exactly 100 years and 1 day before I was born)! I had heard rumors of “wintery weather” but I didn’t pay attention, so I was really surprised when it snowed. And I was even more surprised when it was still around when I woke up the next morning!
