Snow, Los Angeles style

Compared to what much of the country experienced this weekend, I know this is a rather pathetic accumulation of white stuff.  But we found this only 40 minutes from our house, and... what can I say?  Our Southern Californian cuties are rather easily pleased.  They had a great time pelting each other with snow, sledding down the banks and making one very sweet snow angel.  That is, until our version of cold-weather gear was soaked through and we headed home to the warm(ish), sunny weather we're more accustomed to.

Ten ++

Yes, she is beautiful.  And she's sweet enough to deserve a birthday post within 2 months of her actual birthday.  And old enough to know Mama should have posted about said birthday and didn't.  But it's better late than never, right?  Alyssa should be grateful however, for being late will actually improves the quality of the post.  The birthday girl herself has created a list which proves just what a treasure God gave us 10 years (and 63 days) ago.  She titled it "50 things I'm glad you taught me."  Danny and I both agree that if she still believes even most of these 50 things are true 20 years from now, we will know God, in His grace, has wonderfully blessed our woefully deficient parenting. 
See if you agree:
