"And snow for the little boy who lived down the lane"

When Brian heard us talking about the weather and learned it was going to snow while we were gone on our trip, he nearly cried. He wanted to stay and play in it, since we don't get that much of the cold, white stuff at Boulderneigh.
So imagine his delight to wake up to the above yesterday morning! It wasn't much, but he whipped out his snow boots, mittens, and toboggan and got in some snow play before we left for church.

In anticipation of more, we decided to spend last night at a hotel near the airport. We woke up this morning to wet streets, so we probably would have made it just fine this morning. Oh well, better safe than sorry. As long as we get through Denver okay, we'll be with family this afternoon!

That's it from the Portland airport for . . .

Our long awaited rain storm finally arrived a few minutes ago. Hope you make it through Denver okay. That city and Chicago can be tough in the winter.

There is nothing better in the world than Christmas Eve snow and I feel the same way Brian does; last year we went to AZ for Christmas to spend it with the FIL. It hadnt snowed here on Christmas eve for years and of course, because I was in AZ, we had Christmas Eve snow here, at home. I almost cried to :)

Hope you are not flying through O'Hare to get to wherever you're going. It's ice-o-rama here today, with a snow storm expected tonight. Safe travels :-)
