snow, snow, snow, Snow, SNOW

That title was from "White Christmas". You've seen it, right? Totally cheesy old-timey movie with Rosemary Cloony and Bing Crosby? It's a must-see in this house, believe me. I've seen it every year since I was, oh, 12 or so? Anyway, we actually *did* get some snow...not as much as forecasted, but then, the forecast is *never* accurate where snow is concerned. I tried to warn the kids,,,,and sure enough, we got about 3 inches instead of the 6 predicted. But still enough to play in! Kain is having a blast. He seems to have the most fortitude for it. He'll stay out there, his otherwise very, very fair-skinned face turned fire-engine red, clothing eventually soaking wet no matter how you dress him, until you drag him inside. Jack also loved his first snowfall (last year we really didn't ever get enough to play in!). He was content to play out there as long as John's fortitude held up. Maria has far less tolerance. She gets her fill of it for the day pretty quickly. So, the day following our snowfall, John had the boys outside most of the day while Maria and I baked 4 dozen cookies for a church fundraiser. Today, the snow is melting fast. It was quite warm and beautiful yesterday, and most of the remaining snow melted. Still, we had enough to make what follows in my next post.....
