What is it about snow?
The allure that ensures that, even with a dusting, the kids have to stop and rub their hands in it on their way out the door to school.
That makes them actually stop for five minutes to watch it fall from the sky.
That makes them declare, just minutes after complaining that one's stomach hurts, that she is not that sick and trounces back out of her bedroom, snowpants on, talking about a snowball fight. Before 7 a.m.
Yes, this morning, we woke up with our first real snow of the season. At last check, we're expecting to get about 4 inches of the fluffy white stuff. So, barring any health disasters today, we'll be bundling up, dusting off some items to decorate our snowmen, and, if my daughter has her way, making snow candy a la Laura Ingalls Wilder.
Thankfully, we don't have much for holiday plans today, so we can keep things simple and enjoy the season!
