Well, as usual, they forecasted 10-20 cm of snow and we received a cm, maybe two. It has started up again so it's possible that we may get another cm or two again, but now it is supposed to turn into rain. It was fun to go out and take Ethan to school, but this little one just likes to eat it. I talked to #3 this morning and Baby lied down on the driveway and proceeded to lick it as well. Two year olds are funny. Let's face it, they don't remember ever seeing this cold white stuff so their immediate reaction was to taste-test it.

We had some fun this afternoon after Sweetheart's Christmas concert. She was showing her baby sister what to do, and they thought it was so fun! Baby has a contagious little giggle!

I am feeling incredibly blessed. It's -6 degrees outside and we are inside. It's beautiful. But it is way too cold!
It doesn't look nearly as cold as it feels. I have only felt it briefly as I have opened the door to let children through but one Dad clearly expressed his opinion. He exclaimed "Holy Dinah!" but in all fairness, he wasn't even wearing a winter coat. We are way too spoiled on the west coast. My aunt texted me this morning to tell me it's -26 in Calgary. When I go out later it is supposed to be -2, which is almost balmy. I feel blessed!

This is the way we have been starting our mornings. They all have to wait until their friends arrive and then they spend fifteen or more minutes putting little figures together and chatting.
And we even did tomorrow's #8 at the end of our day today because it's the Christmas concert tomorrow and most parents have taken the day off. Which means that the big boys aren't coming to Daycare. I have three children coming tomorrow and then Preston is leaving at noon because his Mommy had her baby last week and he will just go home to nap. Everly Pearl was born last Thursday morning and she is as cute as can be. She has dark eyes and dark hair and looks way more Asian than her brother and yet she really does look like him too. I had the pleasure of meeting her yesterday and she sure is a beautiful baby!
And speaking of cute, I just have to tell you about a two year old moment that happened at the end of my day. We were chatting and Sweet Pea bumped her head as she was going by me. I asked her if she was okay. And she answered me, "No, I not okay. I Cora. You Gamma." And then she just kept on going. She makes me smile!
