No joke... in Nor. Calif.
I love living here because usually the snow doesn't come to me... I get the choice of going to the snow. This morning... the snow decided to make itself at home.
And...my girls are thrilled it did.
AGG quotes this morning: "It's a special day!!!" "It looks like sugar! Is sugar cold? Look! It looks like there's sugar on my house."
"Do you make snow out of coconut?" She's quoting a tv show.
When DD woke up she looked out the front windows all excited and said, "That's not a lot of snow!" So we took her to the back windows and she said "wow, that's a lot of snow! Is Santa coming?"
After we'd finished our snow activities outside she asked, "Can I go out and taste the snow now, please?"
...secretly... I had a blast too.
The girls are pretending the snowman is their brother.
Then it was time to go in and watch Elf, have hot cocoa with fresh whipping cream, cinnamon pancakes, and bacon... mmm.
This is what has been keeping us in the Christmas spirit pre-snow.

(ps. DD already broke Joseph's head...it has been glue-gunned on - Joseph...first casualty of Christmas)
