First snow...

My poor rosemary plant was enjoying 70 degrees on Tuesday....(But I am not complaining!)

I've always loved the first snow of the season. And now I love it even more with the kids. I think it is one of my favorite days of the year. This morning was no different. It really was beautiful. Not just a few flurries and flakes, but a real snowfall.

As they woke up, the kids ran from window to window, checking out all the snowy angles. They were ready to head outside before it was even light.

Henry said "Mom, we'll make a snow family and snow angels and have a snow ball fight and shovel and go sledding." Anna adds "And we'll eat the snow." (her favorite.)

Being that it was so warm just a few days ago, we hadn't pulled out the hats and scarves and mittens and boots yet. So, we dug them out. Of course, Anna needed to try everything on, putting together just the right ensemble for the snowy occasion.

It took her a few tries to get it all just right....She kept missing one thing or another.

Finally, with a little help, we were all dressed and ready for the snow.

It was really coming down hard mid-morning.

As expected, snow was rolled and scooped and moved and pushed...

And eaten!

Henry proved that he had already knew the most important thing about eating snow: "Mom, don't eat it if it is yellow!" (giggle-giggle...)

After nearly an hour and a half, we headed back in, soaked and ready for hot chocolate. It was perfect!
