Is it Christmas?!

It has snowed 3 times this month. And every time, when Xander has woken up and seen the blanket of snow, he has asked me with excitement, "is it Christmas?!" I've had to explain to him that it sometimes snows in the fall here; that it's really almost Halloween; that Christmas is not for a long time; that it's only October and November still has to come and go before we get to December. I really thought he was catching on. But Tuesday morning, it was a REAL winter snowstorm, not just a soggy fall storm, and Xander was completely convinced that it must be Christmas. After I re-explained to him that it can snow on days other than Christmas, he was still doubtful. "I'm going to go downstairs and see if there are any presents." He checked; there weren't any presents; and THEN he believed me.

Oh my goodness! Look at that snow! If I looked out the window and saw that, I would probably think it was Christmas too! Certainly doesn't look like October!

Wow. I was fighting off mosquitoes at the park this week. Happy fall, y'all!

That is a LOT of snow! I had heard it was snowing in Utah too, but I had no idea it was that much! Merry Halloween! :)

Love that Xander. I hope you make a festive snow-pumpkin-man to remind you what holiday is really upon us.
