Nutcracker Snow Flurry

Lydia was a boy, a soldier, and a snow flurry this year.  She was a flurry for the bow.  Snow is our favorite Nutcracker scene!

Looks and FEELS Like Christmas

The morning of December 20th, we had a Christmas snow!  The kids woke up to my announcement of snow in the predawn darkness, and leapt from bed and into their snow clothes.  They had a wonderful couple hours with Kimberley and Oliver next door on their slopes, sledding, throwing snow balls, and building a snow man.  Lydia came in the house before ten to preserve her energy for Nutcracker!  Grammy and Grandpa arrived in the afternoon!
