Snow Day at Gramie's!

The weather that we experienced this last week here in Southern California was enjoyable, for some of us. We got a lot of much needed rain, and the local mountains got a lot of much needed snow! Just in time for Christmas vacation! Gramie's house even got snow! Enough snow that it's stuck around for a few days, which is very unusual for living in the high desert. In fact, Gramie hasn't left her house in three days and it wasn't until this morning that her neighbor so kindly shoveled half her driveway so she could get out!

The drive up Cajon Pass was beautiful! Snow atop the low laying mountains and then as we got into the higher elevations, snow covered everything! We stopped at our favorite Mexican restaurant for lunch with Gramie and Grandpa. The girls were chomping at the bit to get to Gramie's house to play.

Outside our favorite Mexican place.

We made our way back to Gramie's house and bundled up and gloved up and headed outside for fun in the great powdery substance that blanketed Gramie's entire yard. Hannah LOVED playing in the snow! Absolutely loved it! We made a big snowman and then started on a second and finished out time outside with a snowball fight, Hannah's idea of course. We must have spent over an hour outside playing in the snow, making sure there wasn't any smooth snow patches left. LOL. Eventually the fun came to an end and it was time to go inside and change into dry clothes and warm up by the fire. It was a fun way to spend the afternoon, especially so close to Christmas! That's about as "White Christmas" as we'll see!
