"Do not yield to discouragement in the face of difficulties and do not abandon yourselves to false solutions which often seem the easiest way to overcome problems. Do not be afraid to make a commitment, to face hard work and sacrifice, to choose the paths that demand fidelity and constancy, humility and dedication. Be confident in your youth and its profound desires for happiness, truth, beauty and genuine love! Live fully this time in your life so rich and so full of enthusiasm."
"Let us look with greater hope to the future; let us encourage one another on our journey."
~ Papa Benedict XVI

Merry Christmas!

And Snow! i mean....we got snow!
Pictures to come, but the kds were outside after breakfast with thier uncle and a friend.  They headed across the street to sled in the neighbors' yard and ended with a snowman - actually, they built two! 

We were sure to get a light snow but the predictions kept getting higher as the day went on yesterday.  For NC any snow is a big deal but we had about 3 inches this morning and it has continued to fall steadily since then.  Don't know what we are up to but its definintely enough to sled, make snow angels and snowmen!
