1.21.12  |  snowflakes that look like snowflakes























Yesterday we had our first snowfall of the year, here in NEPA.  It was great that it happened on a Saturday.  The whole family had a chance to get out and enjoy it.  Annaleigh tested out her new snowsuit/boots/hat.  John David saw snow for the first time in his life {although I'm sure he wasn't impressed enough with the white/cold stuff for it to create any lasting memories...}.  Mike got to practice his shoveling skills.  And this Mama got to supervise it all.

And the bonus of the day was to stop in the midst of the falling snow to watch it accumulate on the {shoveled} stairs.  Looking closely, we could see that they actually looked like real snowflakes!  Not just small balls of white.  This was the first time in my life I have ever seen such a thing.  What a special blessing!
