Well, we finally got it. That stuff that they always say we might see but almost never really do unless you travel up into the mountains! We got SNOW! And a ton of it. We even made the national news this morning. I love the first snow. It's so quiet and peaceful. Greg and I sipped peppermint tea this morning as we watched the sun come up. It was perfect. Then the kids got up and the "little bit louder" fun began. Oh yeah, we have a great sledding hill at their school which just happens to be in walking distance. So off we headed with our snowboards and sleds in hand. It was a fantastic sunny day of fun. The kids did awesome. Jordan perfected his snowboarding. I actually made it down the bunny hill without falling off the snowboard which was impressive. We were whipping down the hill at mock speed and didn't have any major wipeouts!
This week is also Thanksgiving. I have so much to be thankful for. Here's a short list: my health, my wonderful husband, my beautiful children, my parents, my extended family, my close friends, my acquaintances, Greg's job, snow days, food to eat, a bed to sleep in, a home to call my own, and a God who adores me and sent his son to save me. I'm sure I could go on forever but I'll just say.....may I never forget how much I have or what the Lord has done for me.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone. God bless you all.
