We are home visiting family, hence the sad lack of posting.
Yesterday my dad drove us up to seek snow. Hannah has been pining for snow for a month. There isn't much hope of seeing any in coastal NC, so we wanted to make sure we got to some while we were here. She was disappointed that it wouldn't pack to make a snowman. It didn't keep the kids from having a snow (not ball) fight, though. They just picked up loose snow and heaved it at each other at close range.
It was Nora's first experience with snow, and she loved it! Kristen pulled her fast in the sled, and was rewarded with big smiles. What, can't you tell she's smiling under that coat? She was frustrated to find she couldn't really pick the snow up with her mittens on. I gave her a taste of it, and she liked it so much she flopped on her belly and stuck her face right in it to get more.
Ok, so there wasn't much snow, but isn't it pretty up in the hills?
