Snow!

I love winter, I love bundling up in sweaters and scarves, I love cozy fires and hot drinks, and I especially love SNOW! We got about 4 inches at our house this weekend, which is a very big deal around here. Madeline was not a fan of the white stuff at first, but she warmed up to it after a while. Here are a few pictures of our winter fun this weekend:



It's never too early to start ski lessons!


We took Madeline on a tour of our whitewashed neighborhood via sled.


We stuck with it until she decided that she liked it.


Nothing like a little hot chocolate to help you warm up. :)


About to go for a hike down by the river


Building a snowman this afternoon. Seriously, it has been years since we've had enough snow to do this!




Madeline was pretty impressed with my snowman-making abilities.


Giving the snowman a hug


Happy girl




The view from my kitchen window


And, finally, here's some fun with snow balls captured on video. Madeline thought it was simply hilarious to see us throw snow at each other.

I'm glad someone likes this stuff. You make it look SO fun. And it's funny you mention ski lessons....we put the kids on skis for the first time today. They loved it!
