I woke up yesterday and peeked out the guest bedroom window to find blankets of white snuggling the trees and land. As I crept out into the dark living room I turned on the Christmas lights and peered out the front windows. The light on the lower garage revealed the falling snow that I couldn't spy from the bedroom window.
The long awaited SNOW Day was here!
|"Mom, let's have a snowball fight!"|
At one point inside the CO-OP while ordering lunch, I looked out the front of the store and paused to take in the beauty of our snow outside, creating a backdrop for the intricate paper snowflakes strung above the cash registers.
|No slope too small to try out the sled!|
Christmas Day is a post all its own so I will speed ahead. After Christmas we went to see Into the Woods and had fun in town at dinner. We visited family in town and then home to a raucous game of UNO and Ellie danced for us.

|"Ellie, don't make too many tracks this part is the smoothest of snow."|
|"Come into our shelter Mommy, it's time to sleep."|
|Time to wake up|
