Sunrise this morning
Snow for Halloween, awesome! This is our first snowfall since moving to NEPA and while the locals were not welcoming of the snow, we were beside ourselves with excitement.
Yesterday after a few inches had fallen we bundled up the girls and headed out into the white powder. The flakes that fell where big and fluffy and poured down around us. C barely made it out the basement door before she threw herself to the ground and made her very first snow angel. Daddy quickly showed the girls how to make snowballs...and then proceeded to throw them at mommy..lol
We got the sled and set up at the top of one of our hills. The girls thought that was pretty cool especially when daddy gave them a big push. Even Sookie thought the snow was awesome. She was running, rolling and eating the snow. The neighbor girl came over and showed C how to roll snow balls for making a snowman. They decorated him and named him of course....Frosty.
I woke this morning to the most beautiful sight. It reminds me of when I used to spend a winter weekend in Lake Tahoe. Waking up and seeing the gorgeous winter wonderland landscape was always my most favorite part, and now I get to have it in my own backyard for the winter. Everyone tells me the novelty will wear off after a month, but I do not think it will. I have fresh eyes for this and am so excited for the next snow fall.
