Let it Snow . . .

Today was our first snowfall of the season. It has been an amazing day. The snow has been falling, swirling and dancing all afternoon.
(Andrew and Jacob)
This morning after breakfast we put all of our snow clothes on and headed out into the blistery cold weather.
Today is the Monday before Thanksgiving and this winter has come so early. Yeah! We love the snow.
(Jacob, Andrew and Kelly)
We headed up to our perfect sledding hills. We had the place to ourselves because the neighborhood kids were all in school. We heard that it was an hour late and parent teacher conference week, so the elementary kids went to school for a whopping hour and a half today.

Jacob wanted to go zooming down the hill by himself so badly. But he wasn't quite heavy enough to make the sled go fast. The snow was also so sticky. It is a Northwest thing! We will have to go out again tomorrow to see what the snow has to offer.

Here we are right before we headed home for some hot chocolate and cookies. We were all so frozen. We had a great morning playing in the snow. --emily

WONDERFUL pictures! Also love the one of you and the boys, and the one of your picturesque neighborhood. Good job taking advantage of the snow. I'll bet that the sledding was easier today with the temperature in the teens, burrrrrrr! I'm cold in the house.
