Today IS the first day of December and our first true snow.
now, I'm not one to brag (or am I?), but I have the coolest Advent calendar. I've blogged about it before, but I love it SO much that it'll probably be mentioned every Advent season! My sister made it out of thick felt. Each day has a pocket that I will be stuffing dried fruits/cookies/chocolates into. This year I hung it along our staircase. Each time Hazel and I walk along it, I can teach her a little about preparing for Christmas/ Jesus' birth. This morning we counted the days till Jesus' birthday and Hazel found 3 dried cherries in pocket #1. She is very impatient for pocket #2!
This morning, as soon as it was light enough to see out the window, I carried Hazel over to show her "SNOW". She waved "hello". Then, about 2 hours later as I was indulging in the time to read my favorite blogs, I glanced over at Hazel ...who was sitting in a pile of coats, boots, hats and gloves. Subtle.
there's a snow angel if I've ever seen one!
(note: as soon as we walked out the doors, she threw the gloves on the ground. Which reminds me, I need to go retrieve them!)
And since no one loves a crying sequence more than my family, here's what happened right after the above photo:
1. Stumble and catch self with hands
2. Distract self by exploring the white flakes that are stuck to fingers
3. Realize that the white stuff is REALLY REALLY COLD
4. Realize that Mama is taking pictures and laughing and not coming to the rescue!
