First Snow

The kids have sort of seen snow before but it’s never stuck on the ground so it’s a little hard for them to understand how it’s different than rain. This afternoon, though, it finally started to stick so we all bundled up to check it out.    

James was a little unsure of it but was excited to be outside in his rain boots. I decided to get a family photo before everyone got too cold and started crying. 
    

It was a little hard to get one with everyone looking at the camera, particularly Stella who was preoccupied with all the snow falling on her hair!
  

I tried to write our names in the snow but it didn’t show up and Stella immediately wanted to skate once she realized how slippery it was.   
    
    
 Tsunami ran around like a crazy dog and James just sort of stared in awe. We’ve got while until everyone here is acclimated to the cold weather but seeing them enjoy this new environment will hopefully make the transition a little easier.

    Their ‘first snow,’ how cute! James does love his boots! It snowed, here, for about 5 minutes. It’s, actually, kind of nice to have a change of seasons and you will get used to it.
