We do not get snow every year so when we have enough for the children to sled, there is great excitement in the house! My children were actually up earlier to play in the snow than they were on Christmas morning. It was Cali's first snow fall. She comes from southern China therefor it was never this cold on her sweet cheeks. We bundled her up and sent her out with Dad and the other kids and she LOVED it. When Greg wanted to bring her in (because I was sure Cali was too cold), she through a fit to go back outside. It is fun to be part of some of Cali's "firsts", since we did miss the traditional "first tooth, first step, first giggle,etc" But be sure we are delighting in the "firsts" that we do get to share with her.
By today the older kids are back in school and the snow is quickly melting. The beauty of NC snow is that it melts before it gets dirty and the Carolina blue skies begin to warm us once again.
