Small Miracles for Little Girls

Cory and I spent Christmas with my family in New Jersey. One of my favorite parts is hanging around with my awesome nieces and nephews. On December 23, Alison (my sister-in-law) turned to her little girl Lydia (3) and said, "Tomorrow's Christmas Eve...know what that means?" We were all expecting something about Santa but this cutie-pie caught us all off guard by saying, in a sweet little girl, excited whisper, "It's going to snow!"

White Christmases are a rarity in New Jersey, and there was absolutely no snow in the forecast. We were worried that she was going to be disappointed. But sure enough, the next night, right after dinner, the snow started to fall. It only lasted about an hour or two and didn't amount to anything, but I got to carry her outside (no shoes) so we could catch some snowflakes.

Lesson learned: Never doubt a little girls dream. :)
