let it snow!

i know for many of you the snow thing is no big deal because you have it all of the time, but you must understand that in california, it is a rare treat.
yesterday we were giddy as we spied this on the mountains closest to our home.

so you can imagine our surprise today, while visiting with friends, when cries of, "it's snowing outside!!!" came from the kids. they could not put their boots and jackets on fast enough and they were out in the freezing cold in an instant. and boy was it COLD! we spent the whole drive home in awe of the gracefully falling flakes, little though they were. everything looks so much prettier when covered in a white, frosty blanket.
it was truly the perfect ending to a perfect day!
