The kids were all born in Australia and there was no snow in the Outback. Today was their very first snow experience! What fun! We got about three inches; it snowed all day and we were in and out of the house until late this evening.
ED loved licking the snow while LD scared me with his daring dashes down our steep driveway on the sled! The woods sure look pretty!
We also took the opportunity inside to warm up with hot chocolate. We each made a pinecone bird feeder or two (you know, pinecones covered with peanut butter and bird seed. I made these as a girl scout years ago!) We hung them on the gate that leads out to the creek and woods beyond our house.
|I guess you can’t really see them, but our pinecone bird feeders are hanging off the gate.|
I was mentioning the steep driveway… well when I took the evening pictures above, we were out partly because the UPS truck was stuck in front of our house for nearly an hour. They kept slip-sliding around and couldn’t make it up the hill (which again is no where near as steep as our driveway!). Our house is tucked down in the hollow with hills more or less on all sides.
