Let it Snow!

This morning I woke up to my husband saying the magic words: "Honey, it snowed!" I was immediately excited. It was a pretty good dusting for a first snow and it was still coming down.

I don't really like winter much. It's usually cold, dreary and dark and I wish I could just hibernate through it. But when it snows it makes it lighter and brighter out and everything seems so beautiful and pure. I love looking at it, playing in it and don't even mind driving in it.

I told Jared that it snowed because we used our fireplace for the first time this season last night, despite all his complaining about building it. The first fire of the season always brings the first snow of the season. Just like going to campus without my umbrella is the most effective rain dance that I have ever seen.

Jared went to play football in the "leftover bowl" and I almost bundled Aurora and myself up to go with him. I love playing football in the brings back lots of memories with my family. But Lil A was sleeping and so I curled up on the couch and enjoyed the snow.

My cats looking out at the snow too.

Sorry no pics of Aurora out in the first snow.
It was pretty much melted away by the time she was ready to go out.


  1. mmmmm...fireplaces and snow! Now, that is the Christmas spirit!

  2. Yay I found your blog! :) And I definitely love your analogy about the effective rain dance.

  3. Hey Mimi told me about your blog - I love the first snow of the season!
