First Snow

Blustery Snowy Day, Crackling Fire, Christmas Carols, Hot Chocolate, Cider, A Baby's First Snow
              What a Glorious Day!
Isabella came squealing into our room this morning, "Mama, it is snowing!"   Sure enough, it fell in great wet clumps; our cars were covered.    Stephen went from being sleepy to whistling about the house with Christmas carols ringing from his robe pocket.   Caleb had his coat and boots on before I had my eyes all the way open.  He went up and down from our back deck loaded with wood. 

He is probably the most ready for roaring fires again.

Hadassah was a little confused by the snow at first.  It did win her heart over though.

THIS is why Caleb was ready for those fires.  All last winter this was his favorite place to be, reading, doing school, talking with friends . . . .

This afternoon we went to a friends house and had great fellowship and a lot more snow :)
Our family found out today that we are all so ready for winter!

You make it sound so fun! We went woodcutting today, which was fun, but I don't know if I'm ready for snow...
