the numbers 1 and 10...

  We were inside... bundled up watching Christmas movies...
when Gretel (our dog) rang the bell to go outside...
she needed to go potty... 
Campbell turned on the patio light to let her out AND...
SNOW...
it was SNOWING! 

It was like candy... THE GOOD KIND... falling from the sky...
the girlies screamed so loudly i think the area wildlife CRINGED!
It was EXCITEMENT at it's PUREST form!
Nuts... cuckoo... crazy... wild... bonkers... they were BEAMING!
