snow!

Monday, December 31, 2012

saturday night after dark it began to snow.  the snowing-after-dark is always so exciting because you get to wake up to it.  how much will it be?!  how much will fall while we sleep??!  you can tell, before even getting out of bed... it's here!  the light coming in the windows gives it away immediately.  it's brighter.  we got a good couple inches.  so, after a breakfast of fried eggs and toast, out we went.  it took a good fifteen minutes to get parker ready as i prayed that he wouldn't poop in his diaper as soon as i got the last lace tied and last zipper zipped (would i even have been able to tell through those thirty-two layers?).  he didn't!  the little lad waited until the sledding was over--thanks parker!  lindsey made snow angels, we sledded down our little hill, steve snow-blowed the driveway, and we took a walk in our neighborhood.  you've got to get out right away.  that's when it's prettiest.  before the wind blows the inch of snow off the pines and before there are tracks of other snow-discoverers everywhere.   as you can imagine, our yard doesn't last long undisturbed.  footprints and sled prints happen fast, so you've got to catch it while you can.

  7. Yay! so glad you enjoyed it. I didn't even think about the potential for a poopy diaper when I was bundling Behr. That would have been terrible. Then again he HATED the snow...so we didn't last long anyway.

    I think there are some things in life that are more enjoyable with siblings, and snow seems to be squarely on that list.

  11. Yes! Snow light is one of my all-time favorite things. It's so exciting to wake up and know without looking that it snowed overnight. Brings on a sense of nostalgia for this girl.

    Looks like a snowy good time!
