Christmas Eve; snow dusting

Here in my part of Maryland, the past few Christmases have been very green, no hint of snow was in sight. But this year was different…

Monday, as we left the Christmas Eve service (at out Lutheran church) we were greeted with snowflakes! Adults and children alike, made delighted noises at seeing the snow. I’m sure some might not have been thrilled, but they were drowned out by the excitement of everyone else. Once we arrived home I took pictures, and my daughter and I played outside.

My daughter and I enjoyed the tiny amount of snow (while it lasted) later that evening the rain came and washed it all away. Which is ok… we still have some great memories, and I took plenty of photos.

[…] The next morning, my daughter promptly wore this to school and proudly showed it to her friends. I purposely made it long, so she can fold it in half if she likes when the weather isn’t windy. Also if she leaves it up (as shown in the picture) it will protect her if she’s playing in the snow. Wishful thinking (I know) since this winter we’ve only received a dusting of snow. […]
