White Christmas

I know it was a couple of weeks ago, but I wanted to mention that here in Portland we got a great Christmas gift - snow!  For those of you reading this from east of here that doesn't seem like a very big deal, but it only snows here once or twice a year - and usually just a tiny dusting.  Getting snow on Christmas was magical.

Here's a pic of our back yard:


And the front yard:

Of course, we had to get out there with some of the new gifts.  For Christmas Brianna got a scooter and Andrew got a ramp for his BMX bike so we headed out into the snow.

Also Andrew got some cool spikes to put in his helmet.

Of course, I'm no stranger to the scooter-jump myself.
