Holiday Postcards: Snow Day!

We usually only get one or two good snows a winter 'round these parts (if that many), so I hope my northern readers out there, who are probably already getting a little tired of the white stuff, won't mind too much if I post a-whole-season-in-a-day's worth of pictures from our Snow Day. I won't be offended if you'd like to skip this post if you do.:)

I think the dogs had just as much fun in the snow as we did.

...except maybe for Piper, whose shaggy fur collected snowballs. She got to come inside and get warmed up and de-balled (am I allowed to say that?)

a6
but everyone else headed outside to stay for a while.

Poor Butterfly was very sad that someone found her secret snowball stash and used them to ambush her while she was busy sledding. But she was able to restock again afterwards and all was well.

and snow cream (our first year making it - thanks to the cousins for the recipe (add milk, sugar, and vanilla to fresh snow - yum!!)

Now the snow is gone again and it's time to pack our Colorado Sorels back in the closet for a while. But it was really fun while it lasted! What a great Christmas gift!
