WE GOT OUR FIRST (real) SNOWFALL OF THE WINTER!!!! We are so excited; so excited that Julia, Ben, and Emma went outside to play in the 4 inches at 9:00 AM. And I joined them at 9:40, a few minutes after getting up.
The snow was great. It's light, puffy packing snow, so Julia and Ben were having a snowball fight. Emma did not join that one, needless to say.
I discovered that using an old plastic box (that once held chalk) is great for packing snow into, and then shaking out a brick! We made about 50 or so of them to build an igloo that only has 1 layer so far (we'll go back out after being warmed up again.)
So, here are some pictures to show you our snowfall!
