Oh! the snow, the beautiful snow,
Filling the sky and earth below,
Over the housetops, over the street,
Over the heads of the people you meet.
– Thomas J. Watson*
I believe if you’re Minnesotan, you NEED snow during Christmas time. We’ve been a little restless with the wait this year…BUT NO LONGER!!
The FIRST SNOW – the one that sticks and covers the ground – takes my breathe away each year. Granted winters can get long and the cold overwhelming but that FIRST SNOW is so pretty, so exciting, so charming. It screams for snowballs and snowmen and sledding.
And so we did…
Almost as good as the FIRST SNOW? Coming in to hot cocoa (with marshmallows – of course), a lit Christmas tree, and Christmas carols.
Only 16 sleeps until Christmas!!!
SNOWY Skies & Blessings,
