But don't think for one second that it took away any of the excitement.
In Arizona, we rarely get snow.
I was excited when my friend, Casey, invited us to join her at an outside mall for some snow making fun. La Encantada immersed the main courtyard with fake snow.
There was free hot cocoa and some great Christmas tunes. We didn't stay long because in all honesty, the kids got bored rather quickly and it was a little cold.
Casey and I later decided it would have been a lot more fun if it was just the two of us. Next year.
