Three truck loads later we were ready for winter to come in a month...or not...how about today?
I got the older three kids up early from their rest time today to go play in this:
I love the absolute thrill on their faces with every first snow...
T even went and drew candy canes and made snow angels, but do you notice how everyone of them decided they needed a bit more clothing???
And the snow was so wet that Z had his very own snowman made in about ten minutes
And since it was blowing at least twenty degrees outside I was especially surprised that they all lasted about an hour.
But then what else was I to do except put them by our wonderful crackling fire (thanks to a local gentleman for the wood and my own hard-working guys) with some good hot chocolate.
