What a treat after those days of so much weather. And the kids were so excited! We went outside and breathed in the crisp, still air, and the untouched blanket of white was soon full of footsteps and snow angels as made sure they touched, tasted, threw, swept, ran though, laid on as much snow as they could in the time we had to play.
We had to go to big sister's dance performance in the middle of the day, so we got about an hour of play before we had to put on our best and leave the snow to be. Sunday we woke up to rain, and before noon most of the white was gone. Saturday's hours of the beautiful white landscapes was like a gift in the darkest month of the year, the light was something special, and although the weather forecasters aren't seeing any snow at all on the radar in the weeks to come that doesn't stop us from dreaming of a white, does it?
