I don't think any of us slept well the night before with rumors of snow in the morning. Once it hit morning we were up staring out the window. Audrey threw on her coat over her pajamas and just raced outside. Carissa doesn't even really look awake here!
It brought back such crazy memories of our first time in Washington when it snowed. I wrote about it *here* The girls were so tiny then!
There is something about that first morning snow. It is so quiet! It is peaceful and gentle and calm.
It was a good break between the craziness the Christmas brings.
Here is one case in point... Candy Cane Jane. She just had to show up in her scarf and snow boots. This little lady caused quite a stir this year ~ especially for doubting daughters.
I'd take running out into the snow instead of running around looking for the elf any day of the week!
