Weekend Snapshot - Powered by Basketball & Snow Angels

We woke up to a beautiful winter wonderland. This snowstorm was not like the other. Big, fluffy snowflakes drifted serenely to the ground, and instead of being violently forced to relinquish any brave snowflake who dared alight on its branches, the trees invited the white powder to rest gracefully on every twig, nook, and crook. It was and is lovely.

The kids were ready to don their snowsuits and dive into the snow first thing this morning, but first we had basketball games to win.

Alex and Michael both did great; I think summer basketball camp really paid off.

When we got home, it was time to embrace the beautiful world God painted for us to enjoy.
