Snow Play


Starting on New Year’s Eve, we have had a steady snowfall, with an accumulation somewhere around 15-18 inches.  Yesterday, we decided to go out as a family and enjoy it.  As we were getting on our snow gear I realized that I do not have any snow clothes that fit me. They are all way too big, which I guess is a good thing, but it means I need to hit LL Bean this week before we go skiing or I may lose my pants going down the hill.

It was a light, fluffy snow, great for skiing, but not for snowman or snowball making.

Carter had so much fun playing in the snow.  Last year he hated being outside in it and we never really we able to enjoy it with him.  Yesterday, I asked him a couple times if he wanted to go inside, but he kept shaking his head no and saying “snow.”


  1. Great to hear that Carter likes the snow! Looks and sounds like you all had a great time!!!
