We have been wishing for some playable snow around here. So far, the winter has been either freezing cold and dry, or slightly above freezing and rainy. Yesterday we were excited to see some snow actually falling and sticking! We were out at the mall, and when we emerged, there was a layer coating the street. Although it made for some tense moments driving, we made it home safely, and the kids immediately went outside.They were able to sled a little, and E even made a cute snowman.
K stayed inside, content to eat a cookie and watch her siblings play.
N quickly tired, and came inside to make sure I made good on the promise of hot chocolate.
This morning there was a 2 hour delay, so after breakfast they headed out again.
This time K insisted on joining them, although she wasn't quite ready to go sledding. After one run down, she preferred to stand at the top and watch.
Besides being fun, the snow completely transformed our barren backyard into a place of beauty.
