She has always wanted to see snow. But her ideas of fun to be had in snow came from stories she had heard and pictures she has seen. She was armed with a checklist as we headed north for the holidays. It went like this:
1. Throw snowballs.
2. Make a snow angel.
3. Catch snowflakes on your tongue.
4. Make a snowman.
5. Go sledding.
We managed to check it all off, and her appreciation of this fact was heard at least twice a day when she'd suddenly shout "I LOVE CONNECTICUT!!!" "I LOVE SNOWWWWW!!"
It made everyone so happy. I love her buoyant spirit!
