First Snow!

Being home less than two days, we really weren't prepared for our first snow...let alone this much snow!  We got about 10 inches!  It's not going to last too long because it's going to warm up a bit next week and will all melt, but it does mean we had to dig out ten plus pairs of snow pants, boots, thicker gloves, etc.  I have to be honest- I'm not a huge winter fan. The snow looks pretty on the trees and I can live with it until about the end of the year and then I'm done with winter.  But winter always lasts until March or April, sometimes longer.  The winter gear really stresses me out- so much to keep track of, keep organized, find a place for, etc.  Everything gets wet and we have such a small entry way to begin's really a bit of a nightmare   I do wish I hadn't lost that child like wonder and sense of excitement every time it snows.  It is always a special moment when that first snow comes and the kids wake up and rush to the windows and are anxious to get outside and get in it.  It's almost like Christmas morning.  So while I can't stand winter and look forward to it being over, I'll try to just be in the moment and focus on the fact that our kids really enjoy every minute of it.  :)
Last night Rowan cracked me up. I had just emptied this suitcase and he got inside and put the lid down and then popped out. Too cute!

Waking up to check-out our first snow!  Yes, that looks like one loaded diaper, but I think it was just sitting funny. ;)

Getting loved on by their siblings!

WOW- look at all that snow!  Seeing snow for the first time is an extra special moment!

Loving the smiles from these two! :)  Maeleigh has a terrific evil eye so every time she smiles, it just makes our day!

There's that smile!

The vans...and this was before the snow was done.

The big kids spent some fun time outside today!  They really needed to burn off some energy

Looking forward to the start of the holiday season and trying not to get too overwhelmed. ;)

On a happy note, the girls had a great night of sleep last night. I hope I'm not jinxing it for tonight.   Rick and I got a good night of sleep too, though I am still feeling pretty tired in the afternoons and Rick is crashing very early.
