A white Christmas...isn't that what we all dream about? Isn't that the perfect Christmas scene? We were in Carlinville for the holidays and it SNOWED most of the day on Christmas Eve. Mom, Rich, and I celebrated with my brother and sister-in-law's family which includes their daughter, her husband, and their three young boys.
When Wayne and I were growing up, all the kids in our part of town would go sledding on Ludlum Hill which is in the yard of the college president's home across the street from the campus of the private liberal arts college there. I don't know what they call it now, but in those years it was the residence of Dr. Robert P. Ludlum who was president of Blackburn College from 1949 - 1965.
Mom sat in Amber and Ross' van watching all the excitement while the rest of us enjoyed the beautiful snowy afternoon on Ludlum Hill.
I took several short movies (the longest is only 41 seconds) of the sledding and snowball throwing so here are a few of them...
