We woke up this morning to a dusting of snow and my daughter couldn't be happier. She promptly went outside to investigate the footprints in the snow, (probably just the neighbor's cat) make snow angels, and create some complicated game that required paths in the snow and an involved back story. I love that she is still young enough to be made happy by an inch of snow. Of course, my son is also happy, because it is only an inch of snow so he doesn't have to shovel.
Last night we went to my parent's house to celebrate my brother and sister-in-law's tenth wedding anniversary. We don't see a whole lot of them since they live in central Massachusetts and it is a two hour drive to their house which makes popping in for a quick visit impossible. It was nice to spend some time with them and with my little nephew. I made a cake. It was lemon with cream cheese frosting.
At least if we have to have winter we are doing it with gorgeous blue skies. Just look at this sunshine.
My daughter just came in the house, cold and insisting she is starving to death. She read over this post and wanted me to add one more picture of her. So here it is.
None of these pictures are particularly fantastic. I took them on my phone and the screen is impossible to see in bright sunshine like this. I just aimed it in the right general direction and hoped for the best. If you keep that in mind they are downright amazing photographs!
