Snow Day!

Finally, it snowed! Charlotte got about two inches of the white stuff, starting last night, so the children woke up to a winter wonderland.

The morning view of the snowy back yard

Madly digging through the clothing, flinging things this way and that

After breakfast, the children dug through our bag of snow clothing to see what fit whom.

Properly outfitted, the outdoor fun began!

Margaret (2-3/4) is suddenly looking so much like a big girl. Where did my baby girl go?!

Despite how much I love going out into the wet snow when it's about 15 degrees, somebody had to volunteer to stay inside to prepare hot cocoa with homemade whipped cream. So, I let Chris take the children outdoors. I'm magnanimous that way.

Real whipped cream is so good.

We also made maple snow candy!
