We ran outside today at the first inkling of snow, and over the course of the next few minutes watched it come down steadily and begin to pile up. Elora threw her arms up with an enthusiastic, "Thank you, God!!!" as the girls have been praying for snow for about a week. Everyone did their best to catch snowflakes in their mouths as they ran around the yard, absolutely giddy. As none of the meteorologists saw this coming, Joel and the girls decided that it truly was an answer to prayer. We love it!!
