Just like the ones I used to know
Where the tree tops glisten
And children listen
To hear sleigh bells in the snow...
|This morning's view off our back deck!|
With every Christmas card I write
May your days be merry and bright
And may all
Your Christmases be white
|When Raya woke up and saw Lee plowing the snow off our driveway this morning she said "Daddy doesn't know it's snowing---he's mowing the grass!" lol...rest assured the fact that we had 5+ inches of snow and blizzard conditions did not escape him ;-)|
Normally we get our first snow of the winter as more of a "dusting"...but this year our first snow came as a full out BLIZZARD! Pretty much every school in the state is cancelled I think haha. Some places they are predicting will get 12-15inches by the time it's said and done. I think we're in more of the 6-8inch range. But the winds are up to 50 mph so definitely blowing snow out there!
But man am I happy we got our white Christmas---it's just not Christmas without snow! The girls are very excited to go sledding and build a snowman but I'm not letting them today---just too windy and bitterly cold out there right now--maybe tomorrow!
This morning the girls discovered that Twinkle the elf was also excited about our first snow!
|Here is a better look at what Twinkle wrote ;-) (And yes, "Twinkle" has horrible handwriting lol)|
|Twinkle led a parade!|
Some random pics of the girls this morning....
|Running away from me so I won't take her paci!|
|Got your paci!|
|Mama, how could you?!|
|She was telling me about the bubbles popping on her head lol|
|Trying to catch bubbles on her tongue!|
|Today we tried to match up each girl with her accessories to see how many we've lost in the last 6 months lol. We're doing pretty good considering how tiny these things are! Only lost one glass of lemonade and a soup laddle that I'm aware of ;-)|
And to end this random update today, some pics from the other day when Brielle wore pigtails!
|Of course the best picture I could get of the pigtails was during a tantrum lol|
|It's a hard knock life ;-)|
