Look! We have snow! Now, while I do really understand that this paltry amount may be laughable to some of you....it is SNOW!!! I am reliably informed that the babes were out playing in the white stuff at 8am. I opened the window to take a photo.
Today is my daughter-in-law's birthday. And Simon's. And Martyn's. And this reminds me of a year when David's birthday fell on Easter Sunday. We were in Switzerland, and the poor little thing (I think he was about 4) had no idea what to do first...play in the snow, hunt Easter eggs or open birthday presents. He whizzed around trying to do it all at once, and had us in stitches. So much excitement and happiness all at the one moment.
The same child, might I add, is asleep in bed. I have hidden the Easter eggs. It doesn't matter how old they are, we still hunt Easter eggs on Easter Sunday. Picture fingers drumming the desk as I write...... I want him to wake up and hunt! Not to mention play in the snow.
Sigh. The child is 18. I might be pushing things just a little here..... Why do they all have to grow up??
Happy Easter to you all! And Happy Birthday to 3 special people!
