We love snow...

I didn't realize how much we loved it until it didn't snow for almost the entire autumn. As the dry, warm, days that were our autumn continued, I felt unsettled... as though something wasn't right somehow. We needed snow...

We got about 10" of snow with the storm, and it's been so bitter cold that it's all still around. I love looking outside and seeing the back pasture blanketed with white... with only the tips of the yucca plants and tall prairie grasses poking through the snow.

I love that the kids can grab their sleds and head out back and sled until they are covered with snow, hands and noses red with cold... and they come back in laughing and ready for hot chocolate.

It's been a good week so far... we're back on track in our school work, the insurance stuff from the accident is mostly done, and life seems to be getting back to normal.

R, taking advantage of the snow...

We're off to Denver today... The kids are going to a basketball clinic, through Special Olympics, with the Denver Nuggets. It should be fun...
