The kids have asked and wished and asked and wished.....for snow. It only snowed once in 2016, while we were away in China. Finally, the much sought after snow arrived!! The kids took their sleds and braved the cold, sledding over every small hill we have in our yard. They had hours of snowy fun. When they could no longer take the frigid temperatures, they came in for homemade hot cocoa, after dumping wet clothes in the dryer. Then, they did it all over again.
We took the kids to the big hill around the corner. I thought we would never get them to leave.
