We have had several snow falls this year in Northern Ireland already and I love it. It reminds me so much of Minnesota, where I spent the first 29 winters of my life buried in snow from November until March every year! Although, Minnesota is suffering under -25 F temps lately (that's minus -31 celsius!) and I have to say I don't really miss that too much.
Mariah was in awe of all the white stuff!
Here is our house, sitting cozy in the pretty snow!
"Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean;
wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow."
"For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven
and do not return there but water the earth,
making it bring forth and sprout,
giving seed to the sower and bread to the eater."

A little rugby baby!
The neighbor boys thought that Mariah should try on their rugby helmet. She looks like she could play the prop forward position for the team and take out the boys! Oh goodness, I hope she doesn't ever get that into her head as an idea.
We were HUGELY blessed by our friends with this early baby gift...a tandem stroller! Mariah and Christopher (his parents are the ones who gave us the gift) had to try it out one Sunday afternoon.
And here are a few pictures of Asher and Mariah, hamming it up!
Isn't he just the most precious thing?!We are so thankful for friends like Andy and Laura. They are such an encouragement to us in our Christian walk and in things like parenting too. I really appreciate watching Laura as a mommy because she is really good at it and I learn a lot! Our kiddos are only a few months apart, so I think they enjoy each other's company too...
