In December, after over 7 years of living in California, I was finally able to visit Yosemite National Park.  It was just for a day, but it was snowy and beautiful, and I loved it.  Here are a few pictures.

The Snowman And The Snowdog

I love the original, but the new sequel to The Snowman is actually pretty good.  Though the flying song just doesn't compare.  But check out The Snowman And the Snowdog!  It's very sweet.
