First Snow

Today was the first snow of the season, and it was actually a legit snow and not just some flurries in the air that didn’t stick to anything.

I’m really not a big fan of snow, because I hate being cold, I hate being wet, and I hate driving when it’s treacherous out. But even I will admit this sort of sticky snow (that doesn’t stick to the road) is kind of pretty.

And no, I am not wearing a coat.

I guess 37 and a half years of Michigan winters train your body to not really want a coat unless it’s sub-freezing. I mean, it was 32 degrees. I was fine.

I did bundle Alice up to the point of not being able to move her arms though. She looked adorably angry.

The boys even went out an played in the smattering of snow we got. We didn’t have winter boots for Bird yet, so he wore his rain boots. Not one complaint.

Well, that is not true.

He came in crying after Eddie shoved snow in his hat and down the back of his coat.

Big brothers are jerks sometimes.

But there were no complaints about cold feet.

I did serve hot chocolate with marshmallows when the came in. It’s a scientific fact that hot chocolate with marshmallows re-warms the body back to normal.

The news said we are in for a “warm up” this week…50’s! ¬†Shorts weather!

Just kidding.

Kind of.
