Snow!

Tuesday we had our first significant snowfall of the winter. The boys were pretty excited about the whole thing since this is their first chance to experience the wet and bitter cold that is snow. It was fun seeing them so excited but that fun wore off quickly as the cold penetrated my body. Luckily most of the snow has already melted away and the rest will soon follow after.


Evan's not too sure about the whole snow thing.

Harry jumps right in.


Harry's attempts to make a snowball. It was a rather dry snow, so it was not very good for making things like snowmen.

Evan throwing a snowball that daddy made.


Our back patio turned into a bit of an ice slick. I told my husband that we should make it into an ice rink, but he was not going for it. Harry had fun sliding on it and even laughed when he fell on his bum.

Funny, we had our first real snow today too! It was fine this morning and suddenly began at lunch time. I actually had to clear the steps at 4pm.

I am not sure that I like winter... it always makes me feel so trapped knowing it's just going to go on like this for the next four months.

I am so SCARED of falling on the ice. I grew up in San Diego and never learned to slide and fall as a kid, so now living in NY I am terrified of winter ice. Bummer huh?

The kids will have tons of fun especially when the snow is sticky and in great abundance.

We get our first major winter storm today, oh joy

We have a thick layer of snow on the ground that is here to stay. Darn it.

Hurray for snow and your boys are relishing in it! Just heard it will be -25 degrees when we go to Canada. I think I'll be enjoying that snow indoors!

Love the snow! My kids were so bummed--we got it last night, but it was too icy to construct anything out of. Our highs this week are going to be low 20s-high teens. Brrrr....
Word verification--shnscous--sounds Middle Eastern ;)

Fun!!!! We are getting our first snow right now...and yes, how they handle snow here is totally different than how it was handled in New England when I was growing up! My mom always tells me I am getting soft, but I keep telling her that they just don't know how to handle the snow here!
