We had our first real snow a few days before Thanksgiving. At first it was just a couple inches. Still, the kids made the most of it. (-:

Rolling snowballs in the field behind our house. Notice the snow angel in the lower left hand corner. (-:

The snow made the dogs a little crazy. They enjoyed running like crazy things, snapping at snowflakes, eating and rolling in snow and generally having a good time.

Then we got some more and the fun really started.

Uh-oh! Isaiah taking aim!

I got a picture of my honey! (-:

Daddy sending Miriam down the hill.

Celebrating a good run!

Just so we're clear this is the very small hill just behind our house. Still, the kids have managed to have a great time playing on it - in all weather. (-:

Some pics of the town and bay in the snow:

Isaiah and Samuel built this 'snow fort' in Samuel's front yard. They piled up a large mound of snow then tunneled into it and hollowed out the center.

Inside the fort.

Ambushed by unruly neighborhood kids, Isaiah and Samuel abandon their fort building for a few minutes in pursuit of the enemy.

Isaiah and Samuel slept in their snow fort the night after building it. This is it the next morning, they used the purple sled as a door and those are Isaiah's snow boots outside...frozen solid.

This is the closest I could get to a picture of the boy sleeping in their fort. They actually slept quite well and were happy to come inside and enjoy some hot cocoa the next morning.

Lastly, a couple pictures of 'my mountain'. There are pictures of this mountain, the one that I can see from my kitchen window, in earlier posts (June/July) all green. Now here are some snowy ones:

Halfway covered in snow.

And almost fully covered.

We love the snow! (-:
