"I went to the woods because I wanted to live deliberately. I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life;
to put to rout all that was not life and not when I had come to die, discover that I had not lived." ~Henry David Thoreau

First Snow Fall

Last night as mom and I were winding down for bed, I noticed it was unusually windy and warm outside. That only means one thing. Snow is going to dump on us! Sure enough, we woke up to a winter wonderland this morning. Hailey came running into the room saying "Mom!! Winter came last night!"

Ethan had been running a fever last night so I opted to keep him home from school today. Even though he has a virus, I could not contain him inside the house. They BEGGED me all morning to let them go out and play. I caved and then spent 20 minutes getting everyone bundled up to go outside. The neighbor boy was out playing and they helped him build a tiny snowman. These kids are excited about the snow right now, but it will get old fast. Come March we will be wishing it away! We are in for a long season.

Oh wow! You guys got a lot more than we did. We only had a light dusting, and Cameron was sad that he couldn't build a snowman, LOL. Me, I am missing the warm sunshine. I.Hate.Cold. I like hot cocoa, though, so I guess I can live with the cold for little bit.
