Snow Day!! 1-20-09
We woke up to a winter wonderland this morning. The forecast said that snow would start falling around midnight and by the time we woke up, everything was covered in a good two inches of white powder. It snowed pretty steadily until about 1PM today. It was so beautiful to watch the snow flakes swirl around before they found a place to land and even prettier to observe all of creation painted white! This is our first snow in our new home and our first decent snow in North Carolina. Last year's snow was pretty weak to say the least. By the end of the day today we had about 6 inches or so. Sweet! Our neighbors were kind enough to let us use the front of their pretty brick house to take a picture. We love our neighbors!
Dakota was very skeptical of the snow at first and getting her to go potty on the lawn was asking way too much. I was just thankful that she made it out the back door! lol. But, by the end of the day today, she must have convinced herself that she was a snow plow because she went flying through our backyard, flinging snow up in the air and biting at it and digging holes everywhere. It was hilarious! I'll try and attach a video that we got of her later. Wish you could all be here with us, enjoying a nice hot cup of cider or cocoa and watching a good flick:).
