Last weekend we had our first snow of the year and it was BEAUTIFUL! It wasn't much, but covered everything and was enough for the kids to go out to play in it twice in one day! They had a ball (well, except when Marin did a faceplant in the snow and when she tipped out of the saucer sled...). We were lucky that Grandma Steckel was staying with us, so she helped me get the kids in and out of their snow clothes THREE times. In the evening we all bundled up and went to our town's Santa Parade. It was cold, but really it's an event you can't skip since it's the only evening parade in town and it's just so fun to see everything in lights.
