I can’t believe it’s the most wonderful time of the year again! It seems like we were just celebrating a white Christmas in Utah with a two-month-old baby last December. Now she’s walking all over the place and getting into everything. 🙂 The other kids have changed so much, too, since they last sat on Santa’s lap with their Christmas wish list. Time really does fly.
The other day we woke up to a very light dusting of powder on our patio pavement. The kids asked, “Is it Christmas today?” I probably don’t need to add that we rarely get snow here. The kids wanted to put on their warm gear and go play in it, but we assured them that a coat and gloves would suffice and reluctantly broke the news that there wasn’t enough white stuff to make a snowman.
The kids don’t know any better, but I’ve had to get used to getting into the Christmas spirit without snow since moving here. I thought in honor of the kids, and to add a little holiday magic to their rooms, we’d make this fun “snow-dusted” Pine Cone Christmas Tree Village together.
