OK, so it didn't snow much...but it counts....b/c my goodness, we're in the deep South here and this is the first time in my LIFE that it has snowed 3 times in one winter! I think I can actually say that we've HAD a winter this year! Amazing!
Here are a few from our snow day:

This weekend, in celebration of Eaglet 1 turning 13, we held a Rite of Passage Ceremony & Banquet. My entire family, and my husband's family were all in attendance. We also had a few significant friends and their families there.
It was a beautiful night. God did not skimp on the provisions....plenty of food, great location, slide show full of memories, and beautiful decorations. But the most beautiful part of the night was when her Daddy affirmed her, spoke blessings over her, and prayed for her in front of everyone. She is blessed. We are blessed. (One of my brothers was the official photographer that night, and he has all the pics....I'll post some as soon as I get them)
In preparation for the night, she had a manicure....
Though youths grow weary and tired, And vigorous young men stumble badly, Yet those who wait for the LORD Will gain new strength; They will mount up with wings like eagles, They will run and not get tired, They will walk and not become weary.
