This was my second year coming to entertain at the First Christian Church. This year I brought my family and we had a wonderful time. Kezzie got to meet Elsa and Anna from Frozen. But her favorite part was just climbing the small snow hills formed from the plowing of snow. I guess this little Virginia girl doesn’t see enough snow in her life!

I got a little press coverage too from The Daily American news outlet. Here’s the link to the photo slideshow they posted on their site:
