Where Are You Christmas?

It's December 14th and Christmas is 11 days away.
I have almost all of my Christmas shopping done.
Christmas trees, lights, and decor have replaced the fall scenery.
People are slowly vacating the D.C. area to go home for the Holiday's.
Christmas parties are replacing every day work.
We had our Christmas program at church today.
I'm listening to Christmas music at this very moment to get me in the "Christmas spirit."
But, like the word's of Faith Hill's "Where Are You Christmas", I'm wondering that very thing? Where are you Christmas? Why is everything around me screaming Christmas, but me? Perhaps it's the fact that just last week we had 60 degree weather, and tomorrow it's supposed to be 65 degrees. Not that I'm complaining, I hate cold weather, and despite the sporadic warm days we're having here, it's been plenty cold enough. But, it just doesn't seem like Christmas time without a white blanket covering the earth. So, for the first time in my life, I'm actually dreaming of a white Christmas. I hate to admit this, but I'm in need of a good snow storm.
This is what I expect to see when I go home on Christmas Eve. Salt Lake City, and my lovely Wasatch mountains covered in snow. Then, I think I'll finally feel like Christmas is here!

Actually, you're probably missing your Mother's cooking, your Dad's silly jokes, and your bigger bed...plus traditional Christmas decorations, familiar surroundings too. Snow is definately over rated!
Dad & I are excited to have you come home.

I think that you're going to get the snow you love so much. Sounds like snow all over the U.S. If Portland's got, Utah definitely has to have it.

hi friend, hope your holidays went super well (especially with all the snow!) Are you going back to DC in January? We are having a baby shower for Ash (paskett) Berglund on the 17th and she wanted to invite you if you'd be around. So let me know, and if not, we'll miss you.
