The next hour consisted of coffee and a mad rush to find the snow clothes that still fit their growing bodies. When you rarely have snow, it is a huge task to prepare those little bodies for playing in the white stuff. Talk about excitement.
It wasn't that much snow, but any amount for us is just magical. I'm really surprised it happened so early in the season and hope that we have at least one good snow this year. One where we can ride down the road on the slide and the whole town comes to a halt. But for now, this was a wonderful day.
One of the things I love about my neighborhood, the many tall trees that are all around me. I love my tall trees. This is the same view from my studio window that I love so much. I feel like I am in my own castle overlooking the road and the trees.
It wasn't a lot of snow and I was surprised with how much play time the kids got out of it. It was perfect for packing and we made lots of snowballs and snowmen. You could tell instantly as we walked upon it to hear the perfect crunching sound. We rode down the hill several times, warmed up in front of my neighbors fire pit and enjoyed some hot cocoa and Christmas music from the radio.
