But this time there was a "real" snow pile! Tonight was our city's Christmas festival. It's really amazing what they do...bring in snow, a train ride, tents with food, raffles, and the jolly man himself!
Mary Clare had a blast in the snow!
Ellie, not so much. She didn't like it at all...the cold on her hands, slipping, getting wet...she much preferred the indoor activities!
Now, they both liked the frozen custard!
You can kind of see my giant belly

Mary Clare, now the brave-almost-5-year-old, actually wanted to meet Santa! She told him she wanted a Barbie doll (oops, don't think that's on the agenda). Ellie was scared but also intrigued, and will pretty much do anything for a candy cane!
Their first Santa picture!
