The First Snow of 2011

It was a very rainy start to our week and cloudy and gray.  It just seemed the rain wouldn't move on until....

Tuesday on our way home from Kindergarten the rain drops went from splattering on our windshield to sloshing to sticking.  We watched as the drops turned from clear rain to white heavy flakes of snow by the time we got home.  The girls were ecstatic and had to try to catch some of the big flakes in their mouths before heading inside.

They stood at the window and watched it fall from the sky as I made lunch for them. You could just see it in their eyes...snow such a magical thing!

After lunch we bundled up and headed out to play in it. It was a very wet snow so it was hard to stay dry and they got cold fast but they didn't seem to mind. They made boot tracks all over the front of our building and tried their best to have a snowball fight. Even cleaning the snow off of our van was exciting!

The snow didn't last long and it melted by the next day but they are still talking about it and waiting for the next snow! It's winter, right...there should be snow!
