I must admit, I love the first snowfall of the year and this year's may be the best yet. We were awakened on Wednesday morning to 3 inches of fresh powder gently falling from the skies. You know the stuff that usually only appears on Christmas cards or sappy Christmas movies (both of which I love!) As K was working on a "craft", I was able to grab a minute to reflect out the window. I had just tried to explain to her that there wasn't snow in Bethlehem (we'd been playing with her navitity set). But as I gazed out the window, I realized how that white, perfectly white snow was a reminder of God's love... of that fact that in His eyes we have been washed cleaner that than perfect snow. And now, after another day of less than perfect moments with a 2 year old and another 3 inches of fresh snow, I am so grateful for His forgiveness and love. Without it, winter (and life!) just wouldn't be the same.
Blessings on all your snowfalls...

I'm back from a very quick trip to visit our new little bug. She is just cuter than cute and what a set of lungs! She's most definitely a Schnettler girl!!!
But I must say, as I often still refer to K as my little baby or my little girl, this little Bug makes K look like a little lady... what happened to my baby????

is all I can say about my new niece. Miss Avery Denise Harms arrived on Friday at 10:44 AM. She was 7lbs 9 oz and 18.8 inches long. I am actually in Virginia (thanks to really cheap airfare!) and got to see her last night, sound asleep. She is so beautiful. I'll post a few pictures when I get back home tomorrow morning. If you want to see some "fresh" photos of Avery, check out her mommy and daddy's blog. Happy Snow, folks!
