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!
