Snow cone

On Friday, I woke up early to a carpet of white and a whirl of snowflakes.

After a while, I could stand it no longer and roused the anklebiters so we could go outside and dance in the snow.

Just around lunchtime, the sun came out so Oscar and I went out in search of dazzle and diamonds and snow.

He caught some – right on the nose.

  5. Adorable photo. We’re just going into our fall season here. I’m not sure I want to even think of snow. I’m afraid it will be here before we know it.

  6. You win the early snow reward!! I think your snow free days were quite short this year..I think I would like a summer do over.
    I am sure Oscar loved the snow and I can just see you and your brood dancing in the snow:)

  8. Snow already??? We had our first frost yesterday, and I did not find that so lovely. I’ve been wondering if I would get outside more often if you were my neighbor. Hmmm.
