We were greeted by snow this morning. Of course, it had been predicted, but we didn't really believe the weather forcast! What a surprise! I managed to get a little bit of food in the kids and out the door they went. They had a blast and I promised we could go out again after G's nap. We measured the snow at around 8:30 and it was 1.5inches. At 10:00 it measured almost 3 inches. The snow was very light and powdery. The hope is that as the temp rises, the snow will get "sticky" enough to make a snowman. We'll see how that pans out.

G shows his snowball-making talents. He caught onto this snow tradition very readily! A few of the neighbors were surprised to look down at the remains of a snowball on their lower legs!

M hitches a ride on a sled with the neighbor. The kids in the area had built a mogol halfway down the street. It quickly became the neighborhood gathering place.

Yes, this is one of the main streets through the neighborhood. But it is well known that during snowstorms and summer evenings, the street belongs to the kids. This is the hill M was sledding on.
