First Snow!

We awoke this morning to a world of white! Every day for a week now I've answered the question "When will it snow? Will we have a white Christmas? It NEEDS to snow, will it?" And today it did! The morning's snow skiff heightened our home's volume in every aspect--we giggled louder, ate louder, and turned up the Christmas music. Although it's not yet noon, and the lacy flakes dulled to a foggy slush, the magic remains. Come April, these skiffs won't bring the same flip of the tummy and quickened heart beat. But in early December, amidst the magic of the season, snow only adds to the glow. I'm glad that this morning the winter snow dreams came true!

Thank you for the comment on our blog.. You have such a way with words and I love to read them. That is sadly something I missed along the way! It is cool to wake to snow isn't it? Kari was sooo excited and she is almost 21! Have a wonderful holiday!
