What's that white stuff?

It finally snowed here. I mean REALLY snowed. Julia didn't have school today -- her first snow day ever. I would post pictures, but the Law of the Nall DigiCam is in place. (When we don't need it, it's here. When a rare event occurs that we would really like to take pictures of, it's 15 miles away in Chad's office.)

So you'll just have to take our word for it that we did get out of bed and without eating breakfast or even getting properly dressed for the weather, ran out and played in the snow. We threw snow, ate snow and even made the girls' first snowman (which turned out to be just a snow head, which was later stolen by neighborhood boys. Julia reconstructed it to the best of her ability.)

It was fun but I kept thinking about our soon-to-be house, which is sitting a mile or so away vacant with a big backyard full of snow. Hopefully we'll get a good snow next year, too. We don't technically have a yard here.

Tonight is Julia's friend's birthday party and tomorrow is Julia's birthday party. Chad and I decided to make her a cake. I'll post pictures if the results aren't too horrifying.
