The First Snow

There's just something so magical and exciting about the first snow of the season!

It rained-poured-for over 24 hours, and the weather was in the 50's yesterday. When I woke up at 1:30 this morning, it was still raining, and the creek down the road had flooded. I could see the roadblock from our bedroom window.

Imagine our surprise this morning, when we woke up to SNOW! The only thing in our forecast was flurries, so we were very surprised to see a dusting of snow!

Dylan and Lexie were so excited! Dylan enjoyed pitching snowballs at me, while we waited for his school bus. As soon as he got off the bus this afternoon, he was ready to play!

Dylan was ready to go back inside as soon as his hands got cold! He was frrreeeezing!

My baby girl was more than happy to play outside with her dog, until it got dark!
