Snow Day

We woke up this morning to our first snow of the year. We measured a little less than an inch of powder, which I know is barely considered a dusting in some parts of the country, but it was enough to shut down the city and all surrounding school districts for the day. We bundled up and headed outside as soon as the sun came up, so that we could play before it all melted away.

This was the triplets' first experience with snow. Willa took it very seriously, and trudged around staring at her feet and feeling it crunch beneath her step. Kate ran and laughed and thoroughly enjoyed it until she reached down to grab some snow and, gloveless, realized just how cold it was. Then she cried and begged to go in. Oliver just stood in place and looked very concerned - he enjoyed the snow best from inside, staring out through the window.

Glad the kiddos got to play in some snow. We have had a few inches of ice since Tuesday and got 4-6 inches of snow today. I just don't have the energy to send the trio out I fell on the ice myself.

Snow isn't something we see in TX very often is it?

That is hilarious that you got snow there! We have had a very hard winter here, in Massachusetts, around 30'' of snow already!! There is 4' of snow in front of our house, with only a pathway for us to get to our cars. There are also icicles hanging off the house, up to 3' long!! My mom and brother-in-law have both already fallen on "black ice" can be dangerous.
