The Snowman

What a crazy week of weather we've had here! Last week we had a snow storm that gave us about 7 inches of snow! The public schools were closed for 3 days.

The kids had a blast. By the weekend, all of the snow had melted and we were enjoying 75 degree weather two days in a row! Only in Virginia!

As a tribute to our fun, albeit brief, snow experience, I wanted to share this short clip from one of the best animated movies of all time called 'The Snowman". When my oldest son (now almost 14!) was a newborn, we got him a soft stuffed Snowman that attached to the side of the crib and played this song. I still have it hidden away in the attic. Hearing the song makes me cry! Snowmen don't last long and neither do newborn babies.

School being cancelled for seven inches of snow makes me smile. That's how it was when we were kids (heck, just a dusting was needed to cancel school!)

Up here, we had almost a foot the other day and the kids went to school. Ice is about the only thing that will cancel snow here. I think we have to make up two more days.

May I help you?
