First Snow!

My daughter and I were walking home when we saw the Mennonites go by with the horse drawn buggy. Something such as that is so very comforting although I can't quite figure out why. Its heartwarming and just plain sweet. There are lots of sweet little things in this small town of ours. I shall devote a post to that very subject one day.

The weather is getting colder now. Not just chilly but that fresh cold that bites harshly. I really like the cold as odd as that may seem. It refreshes my mind, body and soul something that the extreme heat just can't do.

We had our first snow of the season today! A little earlier then usual and not just a dusting either so it officially counts as the "First Snow" on our calendar. Christmas is just around the corner.... Time to start thinking about Advent!

This morning as I was brushing C's hair I was astonished as to how long its grown! The curls usually hide the length but today they had formed into soft golden waves. She was preoccupied with a television show so I pulled out the comb and attempted to french braid her hair. I don't know what was more shocking, the fact that I did a decent job or the fact that she allowed me to do so and sat still?

This is the before and after. My sweet little brown haired Pippi.
