So I'm not sure if it's the lack of snow that came our way in Utah last year or just being a mom and wanting to create beautiful memories for my children with snow, but I don't approach snow with the same kind of animosity that I used to.
The snow that has been dumped on my house has really aided my efforts to create these memories for my kiddos and we have been soaking it all in, despite the cough and runny-nose of a certain 3-year-old who insists on being out there anyway, sometimes thrice in one day! Yesterday morning when she woke up and saw that it had snowed, she came upstairs to my room with her panties, pants, and shirt so that I could help her get dressed. She then proceeded to put on her boots and gloves and informed me, very matter-of-factly, that it had snowed. Later that day, when it was too dark to play outside, she made multiple trips outside to get more snow for her and Alexa to eat together. They. love it.
I've gotta give credit to my bestie Amy, too, for being so gosh darn festive each year! Well, really all year every year.
And one last thing; Andrew is amazing. He woke up at 5:00 AM yesterday morning to shovel our driveway and sidewalk. 5. A. M. Have I ever mentioned what a thoughtful person he is? Seriously. He's the best.
