Dear Snow,

Thanks for finally showing up. I find you 11 times more pleasant than the ugly gray and bare trees we've been enduring for the past few weeks. Plus, it feels a lot more natural to listen to the all-day every-day Christmas radio stations Noah preset in the car with you around.

Fair warning: it probably won't be long before I'm cursing your very existence. Don't take it personally. It's not your fault we don't have a garage. You also didn't force us to purchase a vehicle with rear-wheel drive.

Welcome back! It's good to see you.

Best,
Allison

Of course Noah has all the Christmas music on the presents.

Don't get burned out on the Christmas music too fast. It ruins Christmas. I love your blog! Your Zoobie outfit and hair were classic!

Is Whiters using you AS a sleigh?

Could this post be more hilarious?! I love it, so funny. I think I will write snow my own letter of thanks, I will only see her for a few more weeks!

No - I'm pretty sure we had a little sled under us at some point. But the kids were all about riding on our backs, head-first down the hill. Whit was so tough.
