We went to sleep with snow slowly, softly and silently trickling down from the heavens, but when we woke up, we still couldn't believe our eyes!!!
We looked out our room window and saw this!
Within the next half hour, the snow clothes were dug out of the box in the garage and everyone was out. ALL of the neighbors were shoveling away and talking about how amazing it all was.
Mary was so excited to try out all of her new ski clothes. She stayed out for a very long time. The snow gear must be pretty good.
Of course, a neighborhood snow ball fight commenced...(in the bishop's yard, hehehe)
Ben can't stop grinning and already made the "perfect landing for when he jumps off the roof with his skis tomorrow." No comment from me.
Sam was so excited that he kept on giggling while we were getting his snow stuff on. He and Landon had a great time getting stuck in snow piles and helping eachother get out.
I stayed inside with William and did this.
and MUCH more.
Aside from a few more little touch up decorations (like a stocking for William, the Christmas tree, another piece to add to my North Pole Village, ect.), the house is all ready to celebrate the Christmas season and bring happiness and magic in our hearts. I planned on waiting until next week, but the excitement in the air and the warmth in our hearts brought on by the snow, changed my mind.
The decorations will be topped off with a warm yummy dinner cooking away in the crock pot, homemade cinnamon rolls, and a Christmas movie tonight.
What an awesome Sunday.
