What the kids *really* want

So as I've mentioned, it's been rainy-ish, and we're happy about it. But my kids are not quite satisfied. Each morning they wake and ask, "will it snow today?" Snow here in Israel is pretty rare - we usually get a snowy day or two only once a year, and last year we didn't get even one! So that's what they're hoping for (complete with a day off from school, of course).

I was looking through some old photos, and found this - a ruby in the snow, from two years ago:


I really think it's still a bit early for snow, but it can't hurt to hope :)

Do check out more Ruby Tuesday photos, here. Happy Tuesday, everyone!

Red on snow is always stunning. No snow here in france either but it is getting very cold!

Lovely photo. Red and snow white go so well together.

It NEVER snows here in the merkaz. My kids are already begging for a trip to the Hermon sometime this winter so that they can see snow.

It is stunning combination of this two colors. Kids do love snows so they might get it soon. Thanks for sharing!

Yes, it's so pretty to see the red carnation in the snow. We don't get much snow in New Jersey, but more than you do!

We have plenty here in Massachusetts, wish I could send your kids some!

Nice photo, and good luck with the White Christmas/Hanukkah/Holiday. :)

Getting snow only once or twice a year really must make it even more special!

Beautiful ruby in the snow. Maybe it will snow for the kids this year.

Thanks for coming, everyone - I'm glad you enjoyed!
And Robin - next time it snows here in Gush Etsion, you're invited to come - that might be a little closer than the Hermon :)
