But this year the snow meant something else: Mr. Beacon Puppy's first snowfall!
He loved it.
Here he is trying to bite the snowflakes. It's like it was playing a game or something.
And here he is being the cutest puppy ever catching snowflakes on his tongue!
Rob and I are currently reading the book Cold Tangerines, by Shauna Niequist. It is an awesome book. If you've never read it, you should. The tag line for the book is: "Celebrating the extraordinary nature of everyday life." I feel like we did that today by celebrating Mr. B's first snow - celebrating the little things that would be overlooked by so many...but make us stop and smile and say: "Thanks, God, for this awesome life and all the good things you've given us."
