Snow, Snow, Snow . . .
















SNOWWW! It won't be long, la da la da la da la SNOWWW, Snowww la da la da la da la da la da la snowww. That song from White Christmas has been playing over and over in my head all day long. The girls and I were extra cheery all day with the change in weather. The last time I can remember snow in Vegas was back when I was in high school. This was a great test run for our upcoming trip to Utah for Christmas. We found out we are not really outfitted to play in the snow when we get there. An outing is due to buy the girls some snow gear that fits.















Look where the sleeves end on Nora's arms. I think the coat size is 18-24 months. We like to get our money's worth in this family . . . poor child.



Those are inches of snow that fell here. Pretty sweet for us Vegans.

I can't believe you got so much snow over there!!! We got nothing here and I was kinda hoping we would. That is so much fun! I am glad you got photos of it. Well maybe we will get some later. I hear there are still chances for snow between now and Christmas.

love,

Pretty exciting huh!!! I was waiting all day and it never really came down that hard. We got some here and there on this side of town but nothing like you. Way fun for the girls.

Your pictures make me what to turn the heat up. But, it looks like so much fun.

I understand about getting your moneys worth.

Snow in Vegas is such a rare thing, and I think it makes it that much cooler when youare a kid. I hope the girls liked it! Because I know you will have PLENTY up north.
I am so sad, none of ours stuck on our side of St. George. But it was plenty cold.

Wow, that is a lot of snow for Vegas! I am glad that your girls got to have some fun in the snow and get use to it before they hit Utah. We have quite a bit waiting for them.

Fun times. All you have to do is wait for 30 years and it will happen again. Yayy.

Ummmmm...I thought a Vegan was someone who didn't eat meat. Or is everyone who lives in las Vegas Vegan? Thanks for the Las Vegas Bowl Tickets!
