    We really enjoyed the little bit of snow we had. The kids had enough snow to have a snowball fight. I think Mackenzie and Tristan got the best of Ethan. It was fun to watch them all play. We are still hoping for a snowman kind of snowfall though. I know my cousin, Glen, would love to have some snow too.
