When we moved from Montana to Vancouver, WA we warned the kids that we would not be having a “white” Christmas this year. After a very snowy winter in Montana last year we wanted to prepare them for a rainy winter in the Northwest. The kids just laughed and assured us that it would snow for Christmas. They were sure of it. So, early this morning when the snow started to fall it was no surprise for them. As the flakes continued to fall throughout the day they enjoyed their time out in the snow as well as the satisfaction of proving mom and dad wrong.
