More snow? More snow! I'm already regretting my birthday wish for a snowy winter. Yes, that was silly. I'm not the best snow driver and our house is perched atop a giant snowy hill that never gets plowed. So. I wait for my brave neighbors to go downhill, carefully retrace their tracks, stock up groceries and then return home, clenching the wheel and praying all the way uphill. Here's how we have filled our days.
Thanks to my neighbor, we found an awesome trail through the woods by our house. Loved seeing all the pups in the snow in their doggie vests and coats.
|Went to bed on Sunday with almost no snow and woke up to 8 inches.|
|Some of us braved the snow and went out into the city.|
|The rest of us stayed home, made snow angels, ate snow, went sledding in our garden, threw snowballs, contemplated building a snowman, changed our minds about a snowman, drank hot chocolate and enjoyed the snow.|
Paddy is amazed by the snow. Wants to touch it and eat it. He'll be throwing snowballs this time next year, for sure.
Sled tumping fiasco aside, he seems right at home in his sled. It's got extra room for sister, but it seems like he's more content when she's not in it. I suspect that is because she insists on leaning back on him.
The snow dragon! Good thing he is all black, it's pretty hard to lose him in the snow.
|Last night I discovered this silly man hammering our front windows with snowballs.|
|I say that I'm ready for the snow to go, but I really do marvel in it. Coming from Louisiana and then Texas, this is just something so new. Even if it is our third winter here, it still amazes me.|
|Feeding brother some snow.|
|And this is the daily scene inside the house. Big sister taunting little brother with his paci. We're trying to get him off the paci, but Claudia is enjoying this way too much. I admit it was a little entertaining and he was laughing, though, so I waited a bit to intervene. Sweet boy doesn't get upset for anything. Love him. Kind of love the snow. Very much love having both of these snow bunnies...makes me feel like a kid to see and experience the snow through their eyes.|
