Never Doubt the Power of Prayer

About a week ago, Carli started talking about that time when Uncle Kevin hit her in the eye with a snowball.  We have a faint memory of two years ago when it snowed in Amarillo and Uncle Kevin might have accidentally hit Carli with a snowball.  We do remember making a big deal about her throwing a snowball at him.  Apparently Carli only remembers getting hit and not having her revenge.  So her prayers started including praying for snow in Amarillo so she could hit Uncle Kevin with a snow ball.

Honestly, the weather forecast for our time in Amarillo did not include snow and Keith and I were preparing to break the news to Carli that having snow was not meant to be.  But then, it snowed.  Carli and Ava were both so excited b/c they are convinced that God sent that snow just for them and who are we to argue?!


Kevin and Megan were driving into Amarillo on Saturday when it started snowing.  The girls were so excited to go practice making snowballs before they got there!






When we got word that Uncle Kevin and Aunt Megan were close, we got bundled up and ready for the ultimate toddler snowball fight.  Keith helped Carli peek over the fence and throw a snowball at their car in the alley.


And then she met him in the driveway with a snowball...


They were very pleased that Uncle Kevin played along and stood still enough to get hit multiple times with snowballs.  He was a great sport!


And just before it was time to go inside and warm up - they plopped down on the snow to make snow angels...and successfully covered themselves in wet snow.  :)


They were some happy little girls!
