It's finally here. The wait is over. The best part of living next to a mountain in Utah. Am I laying on the sarcasm thick enough? Right now it is snowing. I hate snow. The whole winter season is not much better. The seemingly endless gray skies. The bitter biting cold. Having to be inside with bickering kids and know that I am neglecting the cleaning that needs to be done. There are two things I am looking forward to. Sledding. We had so much fun last year with the kids. Even though Ty was only one he was a trooper, until Dave helped him face plant into the snow. The girls love racing and taking turns making new trails. And, the holidays. Starting with Halloween. I decorated a month ago. I love when each new holiday season starts, seeing the excitement on my kids faces. In the bleak winter months I have the shining faces of my beautiful children to light the way back into spring. I am only feeling this way because they are getting along and playing quietly in a different part of the house. I can't even hear them. Ahhhh, bliss.
