Suzy Snowflake

The change of seasons is upon us. We had "quite a snow" this weekend. Which of course led to staying indoors, starting a fire, and listening to Christmas carols. I love Ken for putting up with all my silly inklings. The first snow of the season is always really exciting for me. I like being outside when it's that cold for the first time and sniffing in and having my nose burn. It's exhilarating. Think what you will. I would have to say my all-time favorite thing about the first snow is all the leafy snowmen that pop up around the neighborhood. I was walking Rusty and saw on the upwards of 6 or 7 of them! I like it because I remember being little and begging my mom to let us go outside and play in the snow. Even though there might have only been an inch of so. She would tell us there wasn't enough and we should just stay in and be warm. But would always cave- and we would PROVE to her that there was enough snow by building a snowman. That would inevitably be covered in leaves. And all the grass would be showing. But it's charming. It's childhood. And I am so happy to see it in my neighborhood.

How funny! I didn't realize that all the snowmen were leafy; that's what happens when you're too busy to even...go to the bathroom. :) Seriously.
