Snow Shoe, WV
We had a fun time in Snow Shoe, WV. Peter and Greyson skied and Lily loved tubing. Cali likes things better a bit warmer and slower than the tubing. She and I went down once and that was it. I give her credit for trying but she made it very clear she was not going to do it again. We had fun watching all the other folks. We had some snow a few days later at home, which made Lily proclaim that Christmas had finally come. When I was taking down all the Christmas decorations Lily was sure Christmas was not over since it had not snowed yet. So now I can officially put all Christmas decorations away for next year.
My two little girls are growing up. I had not made a real fire in the fire place since the winter before we brought Lily home. Then came Cali, just could not trust their curiosity around the fire. Since we had temps in the teens and we were stuck home because of the snow and ice, I decided to make a fire. I love the smell and tending the fire.
A friend of mine is India now helping out in a special needs orphanage. Her blog is on my list if you would like to peek into her world. She has an incredible heart (she was Cali's "mid wife" during her "delivery" to us). She is just falling in love with the kids over there. Her blog is called Precious in His Sight
