East Tennessee White Christmas

We weren't dreaming of a white Christmas but we got one. We drove 9 hours south only to be met with weather that we would have expected if we had driven 9 hours north.

My honey and I got out for a walk in the snow.

We saw this inviting lamp post outside a nearby cabin. I thought it would make a perfect holiday card. Look for it in your mailbox next year.

We followed this beautiful snow ladened path.

And found that the area looked more like an alpine village than the golf resort it is.

The snow was a highlight of the holiday but there were other things that made the holiday special. Like a little boy carefully hanging ornaments on low branches.

And a bigger boy hanging ornaments higher than he ever has before.

And a grandfather reading 'Twas the Night Before Christmas to a completely rapt 7 year old.

And grandparents surrounded by all their grandchildren.

And a small family

within a large family

 sharing the joy and spirit of the season.


  1. Your photos are beautiful. It really does look like you had a Hallmark Christmas! You gave me the warm and fuzzies!

  2. Aww. Looks like you had a wonderful holiday. I'm glad you shared this. The pics are great:)

  3. Glad you had such a nice Christmas. I really like that lamp that grandpa is reading by. We go for snow walks too with our dog.


Whaddaya think about that?
