Leave it up to her dad--who was home because school was canceled--to get her out in the snow.
My favorite moment of the day: coming home from class and having Sydney grab my hand, take me to the living room, and show me the lights on the tree (which Jason put up while I was gone). "See! See!" she exclaimed. "Lights on the tree! And lights over here," she pulled me over to the fireplace mantel where Jason had strung more lights. "See!" She pulled me to the tree again, and leaned in close. "Smell it!" We both inhaled and filled our lungs with more than the scent of evergreen.
Such rapture, such a little hand, such joy on her face and in my heart.
