First snowfall in Skopje
Last night, a day late, but still pretty, we received our first accumulation of snow here in Skopje. It has snowed earlier in the season, beautifully blanketing the mountains, but this was the first time we could get close to it. Chris, who I think is secretly still a kid, was out the door first thing this morning to start making his snowman. The girls were eager to help, but ended up mostly making lots of snow angels instead. Collier was not too interested in the snow, he particularly hated wearing mittens, but he enjoyed watching the girls pummel each other with snowballs! Yotee, ever the water dog, tried to eat as much snow as she could. Our first measurable snowfall here in Macedonia proved to be a fun event for almost the entire family--Christopher slept right through everything! I hope you all are enjoying a lovely Christmas too.
