We were all overjoyed to see it. The Northcutt family also sent other surprises including “southern snow” for our Christmas tree. We don’t get any snow in the Deep South. Every year when the cotton fields are defoliated for harvest they appear white like snow. Thus these fields become the backdrop for many Christmas card pictures of “Southern Snow”.
Our friends found a Christmas ornament for our tree made from one of these cotton bolls. It is a sweet little cotton snow man.
As you can see by the year book photo above the kids have their sledges under the Christmas tree waiting for our first snowfall. The sledges are a bit of their Christmas presents a tad early. Today is very windy as we woke up to rain and 35 mph wind. Not cold enough for snow yet. We will continue home school work , making ornaments for the tree and look at our little southern snowman and smile.
