I had to smile at Hannah sitting reading in this box when we got home after lunch. It always amazes me how much fun a box can be.
The forecast for today. SNOW!!! Before we left for lunch the girls enjoyed watching a few snow flakes falling. There has been no rain - so that's been different. There is no question of rain / sleet / snow. It's very clearly snow - but not a lot. By the time we had left it had stopped but the girls keep checking and hoping.
Just before we left Bible study they got their wish. It had been snowing for a few minutes before we left and we could already see some snow collecting on the floor and the car. So the excitement levels were incredibly high.

They loved watching the snow as we drove home. It's incredible how excited they were about it.
It was nice that they got to watch it a bit more before going to bed. Now the hope of having a white garden in the morning is a very real possibility.
Just an hour and a half later the extra snow that had fallen was quite visible. When I was up at midnight though (a "normal" nightly trip to the bathroom for a pregnant lady) I had a look and the snow had stopped and there was not much more than at 8:30pm. So it does not look like it will be as much snow as we had 3 years ago. It also sounds like Christchurch has had loads more. I can see it's going to be a fun day for many people tomorrow.
