Our first snow this winter... This would have been nice last month... would have really put us all in the Christmas spirit. Christmas just doesn't seem like Christmas without that glistening white stuff. Despite how pretty that new fallen snow looks... I'm just not mentally prepared for snow anymore. This balmy winter weather we have had of late has gotten me thinking lots about Spring. The kids are off school today, so I know they will enjoy making snowmen and snow forts and... of course... the occasional snowball fight. And given the weather forecast for the next couple of days... there might be more opportunities for the kids to add to their snow fort.
