Snow Grateful

. .. . . .. . .. . .. . . .. . .. .. . .. . .. . . . . . .. . . . .. .. .
What a fun surprise - snow in the forecast for this past weekend.  It's one of those things that you've heard it announced. but until you actually see it falling to the ground...does it hit you as true!   I loved it.  So beautiful and yet so strange.  Poor trees hardly able to bear up under the weight of all that snow and many of them didn't.  A lot of downed limbs and even wires across the northeast region.  Many were and still are without power.  I'm grateful that is not the case for us - this time around.

::: Our wash line :::

Seeing this made me think of the hymn...
"Lord, wash me and I will be whiter then snow."

As the day progressed the kids wanted to be outside... Scott was studying (or supposed to have been studying) and I figured - why not make our first snowman!  It looks like we got caught having fun.

Since Scott was at the door taking pictures... I asked him to run and get a carrot for our new friend's nose.

Not really sure how to segue into my gratitude post here... so you'll just have to bear with me.  I just find myself continuing to give God the praise and gratitude for the gifts He so graciously lavishes on us.
