I just need to add how much I love the first real snow of the season...the first shovelling of the sidewalk and the pride of the job well done. The late night dog walk of pure silence...
My daughter, now three, was fully able to really enjoy the snow, make angels, the whole deal. Her excitement when she came down and saw the snow was really precious. She was somewhat disappointed that to discover it wasn't good snowman-snow (too cold), but we had a blast anyway. To actually have enough snow to go sledding and a four-day weekend to enjoy it, was great.
The snow was a real Christmas jumpstart, we were inspired to start the decorating early—wreaths and lights in effect! Bring on the tree!
