This doesn't happen too often down here in the sunny South and especially NOT before most of the Northeast gets their first snow of the year...
But this past Saturday we got a nice little dusting that was perfect for a little Ukrainian girl to experience her 'first' snow.
Although I know that it snows TONS where Nadia is from, I also know that this girl has never once set foot out into the glorious white stuff from above!
She knew exactly what to do, though, and started reaching up to catch her first ever snowflake.
You got it sweetie!
And there are lots more where that one came from-whoopee!!
Trying out her 'snow legs'.
She had a ball and I couldn't help but experience a bittersweet moment that she got to enjoy something so child-like, simple, and fun...but knowing that many in her orphanage will never do things like this that we take for granted for our own children.
Nadia had so much fun that when I told her it was time to come in she started signing "more please".
This Northern transplant Momma will definitely be praying for MORE SNOW this year and more child-like memories for this little one.
