Despite all of the adjustment that we've been going through over the past few months, we really are enjoying living in Virginia. We are especially enjoying the seasons. We've had a warm summer, beautiful fall. And today, it snowed.
This isn't the first time it's snowed, but it's the first time that it stuck to the ground.
It started when I was sitting in a meeting and when someone happened to mention that the flurries had begun, I became so distracted I nearly lost focus of what we were doing. All I could think is, "WHY ARE WE SITTING IN HERE WHEN WE COULD BE OUT THERE, RUNNING AROUND AND PLAYING?! IT'S SNOWING! SNOWING! SNOWING!"
For the rest of the day, I could not wipe the smile off my face, no matter how hard I tried.
By the time I arrived home, the kids were having the absolute time of their lives running around the yard and making snow angels. I popped an extra Naprosyn, threw on my fleece pants, and ran out to join them.
For as much fun as the kids were having, Charlie was having even more fun.
He was pelting our small heavily dressed and extremely slow moving children with snowballs while laughing, "This is AWESOME! It's like shooting fish in a bowl!"
If he gets a lump of coal in his stocking, it should really come as no surprise.
