It’s always exciting to wake up to a fresh dusting of snow. It happens only a few times each winter where we live, which we are very grateful for. Every time we wake up to the yell of “SNOOOOW!” from one of the kids, we all pop out of bed, throw on our warmest clothes and boots and run outside to enjoy the blanket of white that covers the yard and forest behind our house, before it melts away. I’m sure this sounds silly for those of you who get several inches (or several feet), but our little inch creates some pretty big smiles around here. By the time we come inside and start to warm up, the snow is already beginning to fade and by noon it’s usually gone completely. Snow mornings are the best mornings!
