First SNOW of the season

Tonight the girls played in the snow on the deck. Melia was so excited to slip her little feet into her boots and make foot prints in the snow. Eva stood at the door protesting until she was ready to go out.

The snow was falling, resting upon their cheeks as they played.

Melia made her first snowball of the year, and then promptly "squished it".

Eva was tentative at first, not sure that all the fussing at the door was worth it. She fell just a seconds after heading out, her hands got cold and wet, which was followed by crying. After a few minuets, it was back out for more. This time a little more willing to explore the deck and feel the snow (without gloves, because she would not keep them on).

I am looking forward to many more days of being bundled up for a day in the snow.

It was so pretty today! I thought about taking some "first snow" pictures too...but had no one to take them of. Ben certainly wasn't going to go run outside for a shot! :)

Glad the girls had fun!

Madalyn is in LOVE with the snow; we'll have to plan some sledding dates this winter! BTW, I just realized that I never called you back this weekend :(....SOOOO sorry....Dan's grandpa is really sick and we've just been distracted. But, yes, that is my Mom's water bottle...she will be thrilled to hear you have it! Anytime you want to stop by would be great! Miss talking with you!

Running after the heart of the Father. Seeking His face in All things. Walking His will out in my life. These are the desires of my heart. Along the way I am a wife and mom who wants to capture memories that will last a life time.
