The snow started on Sunday (the 21st) while we were in church. We didn't think it was going to stick, but it kept coming down, and a few hours later we realized that the ground was turning white. I bundled the kids up as it was starting to get dark, and we went out to enjoy the snow.

Andy's not crazy about his hat, but he does okay once it's on!

The snow stopped overnight, but the next morning it started up again about an hour before Kate left for school. By 11:00 it looked like this. It was only a couple of inches, but a lot more than we got last year. When Kate got home from school she went out and played in the snow for a good long time with Glory and Sky.

The roads were icy, so school was canceled Tuesday and Wednesday. (Wednesday was supposed to be a half day, anyway.) Kate had a great time playing outside, all bundled up in her pink snowpants. She's pink all over. (She's been wearing my scarf, which is not pink, but I am crocheting a pink scarf for her.)

Last winter was so mild (and the summer was pretty mild too), but I have a feeling we'll be getting more snow this year. The schools have already scheduled makeup days for the two they missed, so I'm not sure how they'll handle that.
