On Christmas morning, it snowed. We had the most snow a Portland Christmas has seen for 70 years.

We couldn’t believe our eyes when we first saw the snow. The kids had prayed for snow, but I had very little faith. We gathered by the windows to watch it.

It snowed and snowed.

And, best of all, it actually stuck. Ilsa made 2 tiny snowmen; the boys had snowball throwing competitions.

By this point, they already thrown all the snow off the balcony, so you really can’t see how pretty it was.

So, who can guess what I got for Christmas?

Best of all, it actually works, focuses, can be downloaded onto my computer, and has a dearth of sand in its sensitive parts.
