Let it…

Look what we woke up to today!


To be honest, we knew it was snowing last night. It got REALLY quiet at one point, and I said to John “Is it snowing outside?” He said “I don’t think so.” But when he opened the blinds to look, it was! It never gets that quiet unless there’s snow.

(I was RIGHT, suckah! I’m the snow sensing GODDESS!)

(What?)

Cole was VERY excited and kept hollering “It’s NO-wing!” He wanted to throw it instead of getting into the car to go to school. I had to promise there’s be snow at daycare before he’d budge.

I love living at this elevation. We occasionally get a couple of inches (and the last two years we’ve had a few freak dumps of a couple feet each), but it rarely impedes driving and it’s usually gone before too long. It’s so nice to have it but not have to live with it constantly, something we hated about winters in Pittsburgh. We can drive to nice, deep snow in less than an hour (and it’s a GORGEOUS drive) and we pretty much never need to shovel. Perfect!

Speaking of nice, deep snow, we went sledding last weekend. Despite how apprehensive he looks in that picture with my dad, Cole had a great time.


My sister was there, too.

What, can’t tell we’re sisters? Here, how’s this?:
(Okay, even I think that’s just weird. And creepy. But mostly weird. I mean, pictures with me without makeup? SCARY.)
