|These were all taken in my parents backyard.|
The weekend started early Christmas Eve morning with a short hike. We went just up the road from my parents' house thinking we might be able to get to the top of a ridge. The air was crisp and the ground was soggy. We didn't ever find the trail that branched off to get us to the top but we did enjoy walking along a lovely stream. Blanca was thrilled to run freely through the woods. We all needed the fresh Appalachian air in our lungs, it really does wonders for the soul. I was surprised at how vibrant everything still is considering it's winter. Being here has been a much needed break from the lack of Nebraska scenery.
I'm hoping y'all had a wonderful Christmas weekend too and were able to spend time with those dear to you. What was your favorite Christmas gift? I hope you will get to enjoy it for many days to come.
|Blanca's favorite gift was a giant Nylabone, we got the biggest one we could find. Hopefully it will last a while.|
|Of course having such a wonderful outdoor space to explore and enjoy is her second favorite gift.|
