First Snow

We had our first snowfall last night!  It's so fun to wake up to a winter wonderland!  And such a fun way to start the Christmas season!  We're hoping to go get our tree today before everything freezes over as it's supposed to the next couple of nights.

We had to go out to enjoy the snow and build a snowman.  The 15 minutes of play time hardly seems to justify the hour we (I) spend getting ready and cleaning up, but of course it does somehow, too.  Toby only lasted a few minutes this year because he took off his gloves and it all went downhill from there.  I ended up putting him in the living room with a bottle and Veggies Tales while I helped Ben and Jo finish up their snowman.  Then everyone was ready to head in for hot cocoa!

The aftermath!

The chickens were a little hesitant to come out of their coop, and when they did they preferred to avoid the snow.  We'll be bundling them up a bit more tonight to avoid some of the bitter cold!

I like the aftermath picture! It's very familiar.

Yes! We definitely did some extra laundry yesterday. I will say, though, that after talking with you about laundry, we've been better about re-wearing things, and I've noticed a difference! =)

Hey, that's great! We recently got laundry on site, and I'm so happy!

Yay! That's awesome! I'm sure that's especially helpful now that Jublilee is here!
