White Christmas--Better Late than Never

I wasn't planning to post today, but we received a surprise visitor tonight: Snow! 


Since we never know how long snow is going to stick around in the desert, we knew we had to take immediate advantage of it.  So of course the kids and I decided to go outside and play.  We weren't the only ones; when the kids ran outside, they were thrilled to discover that the neighbor's kids were outside as well.  They joined forces to build a very pitiful snowman, who they named Frank.









It felt magical outside tonight.  My hands were numb, but the air felt so still, and even a little warm.  I don't see any more snow coming down, so I have a feeling that our little winter wonderland will be gone by tomorrow morning.  That's okay.  I'm glad we were able to enjoy it, even if only for a little while.
