Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow…

For all my non-Southern readers:  Don’t laugh at us.  We get snow once a year(if that).  This is a big deal to us.

When we came out of church on Sunday, it was half raining-half snowing.  By the time we got home, it was pretty much all snow!  (It’s what the weather folks had predicted, but I don’t think any of us believed them.)

My parents came over…so we got to leave Asa in the house with my dad while the rest of us played.  (Thanks, Daddy!)

It was fun while it lasted, but it made me super-glad that I don’t live somewhere with snow all the time!

First Smiles


Dear Asa,

You’ve been smiling a lot the last few weeks.  My favorite is when I look down at you to discover that you’re already grinning at me.  There’s nothing in the world like the feeling of your child being completely enamored with you.  (I’m sure that sounds narcissistic, but it’s true!)

I love the way you start to smile with one side of your mouth (like Elvis) before the other side catches up.  Or when you’re only slightly amused and do the half-smile.  I love it.  And I love you.
