A Dream Come True!

Saturday, October 29th, 2011

That is, if your dream is to have snow on the ground!  Around here, snow has been often asked about, dreamed of, wished for, and Paul was sure it would snow on his birthday.  Well, it got even better.  God gave us snow before Paul’s birthday!  I guess he got an early birthday present.

When the kids woke up this morning, their excitement was delightful as they were glued to the windows watching the snow.  Marie kept saying, “O!  O!” for snow.

Andrew is such a good Daddy and took them sledding.

Eating snow is about Paul & Hannah’s favorite thing to do with it.

Especially since Marie couldn’t walk in her boots, she got a lot of sled rides, both down and up the hill!

Even though she couldn’t walk, she could stand in her boots.

After all the kids were cold, we came in and unwrapped 100 layers of clothes and put dry pants on everyone.  Then it was time for hot cocoa and marshmallows (maybe the best part of going out in the snow!).

Yesterday when I didn’t hear Marie for a little while, I went looking for her.

Yep, she had carried a pumpkin to the couch and was simply enjoying sitting on the couch next to her pumpkin!

Definitely the good life!
