First Snow

It snowed last night!!! Gary is pretty disappointed. He doesn't like to have to work with it. It causes the carriers to to go slower and the probability of an accident is so much higher. I don't really like it because it is just that much more work to get the kids ready to go play outside and then to come back in 5 minutes later and take it all off. Everything is wet, cold, or muddy. I am not much for shoes. I am barefoot most of the time. But now I need to wear slippers or at least sox. But, all that aside, the kids love it. They were so excited to get to wear coats and hats and gloves to school today. Andrew got his snow pants out so he could go play in it. Desi has been wearing her gloves all morning. After I got Spencer and Benjamin to school Desirae and Andrew and I went out to play. It was so pretty too. It really was nice. Not too cold, no wind, and bright sunshine. There was just enough to cover the ground but not get in our shoes. After about 30 minutes their hands were cold and their sox were wet so we came in for the celebratory hot cocoa. Now it will all melt and leave a big messy mud hole. Maybe that will be my next post.

I am so JEALOUS! I love snow. I don't think we are going to see much of it down here though.

SO much fun! Snow is a pain in the neck but the kids love it so much. Today it was 75 degrees here and Saturday we are expecting snow (I'm not ready for that). Cazy weather!

I hate hate hate snow. I feel like it is going to snow so much and freeze us in for 6 months like last year. I am an anti coat and socks wearing person too. But I do like warming up!
