She was so snuggly!
But we had plans to go for an evening bike ride as a family (and she didn't want to miss it), so we bundled her up and gave her a very special treat.
Yes. I know. But they are her favorite!
We set her on the back of my bike with her warm, green treat, and headed out.
We also made some special cookie deliveries.
The evening was fun, and included Shane showing off
his MAD SKATING SKILLS.
On the way home, we noticed something
We had to get closer...
because it isn't every day in the desert that you can play
The snow even cheered my little sickling,
although she didn't feel well enough to play in it.
But that's okay.
We brought the snow to her.
And then she was worn out and wanted to lay down. Of course the big kids weren't ready to leave... so we made her a little bed
where she could get comfy.
Nevan and Mayzie wanted to stay
but it was late. I promised them they could come back first thing after breakfast the next morning.
And I always keep my promises.
Nevan thought it would be nice to wear his roller skates.
We had a great time. Just the three of us.
In fact, that's where the kids spent the next few days.
Lucky for us, the church that meets at the elementary school on the next road over trucked in 40 tons of snow for their congregation to play in. Lucky for us, it was an unusually cold few days of December in Phoenix, and so it took some time to melt. Lucky for us, we discovered it on our little bike ride. Lucky for us, it was like Christmas come early. Lucky for us, we have proper snow skates.
Yes, we are very lucky.
Very lucky, indeed.
