After one good snowfall in Autumn, we've had three months of really mild winter so waking this morning to find a snowy paradise was a treat! We lazily got around to the day, checking the view from all the windows, calling friends to see how much snow had fallen in their towns, making pancakes. Eventually, everyone got bundled up and we headed out to shovel the path, uncover cars, and make some snow angels. It's light and fluffy powder, not good snowman or forts, so the kids spent the hour digging for treasure, "making it snow" (by hitting low tree branches), and playing with neighborhood friends. I hope we have enough cocoa to handle the masses if there's no school tomorrow!
