"Mommy, I've been praying for snow! And it is here!", Ivana was telling me today.
It was one glorious day! The weather was perfect to go outside sledding and playing snow ball fights. We couldn't make a snowman, though, it kept on falling apart. Ivana was the only one being pretty successful in keeping the snow more or less together, but Leona thought it was more fun to step on it.
What a difference an extra pair of hands mean! "Babicka" (grandma, in Czech) is visiting and staying with us till the beginning of December. So we were able to leave baby Milanka at home and go outside with the older sisters. It felt like I was missing something, I am not used to leaving her. But we had a great time and came back almost right after she woke up from her nap.
I just love to see girls' red cheeks and watch the snow flakes melt and turn turn into crystal drops of water. We found icicles and they couldn't resist the temptation ...they had to lick them.
"Oh, it's better than ice cream, Mommy!"
That just brought the special memories of my childhood. Those rare occasions when we had snow stay for a couple of days, and the chance to fool around in it.
