This Is SNOW Fun!

Winter is finally here. I can't believe it didn't come until the middle of December. When in the past 30 years has winter not started until mid December - especially in Logan!!! Like I've thought many times this fall, if this is a result of global warming, I am a fan (but only here in Utah. I really don't want the rest of the world to have it due to the problems it would cause.) I loved this fall!!! It was so warm and mild!Saturday we woke up to snow. Cadence was so excited to make bootprints in it. She and Dad got dressed in snow clothes and boots and clomped outside to shovel snow. Dad had his big shovel and Cadence had her little garden shovel. After Dad pushed the snow OFF the sidewalk, Cadence would push it back ON the sidewalk. She had the time of her life shoveling snow onto the sidewalks at our house and those around the neighborhood. SUCH A CUTE HELPER!!! Cadence loves to put snow in her mouth and say, "Yum. Water." I encourage her not to, but she doesn't really listen to me. She does it anyway. She really loves to see her bootsprints. She walks around in fresh snow and powder and then turns back to see where she has been. Cooper and I have walked around in the snow too and he seems to enjoy the fresh, crisp air. I bundle him up very well when we explore outside. Going to and from the car the past couple of days has been interesting as Cadence makes her tracks around the yard to the car in just her shoes while eating snow!

Welcome winter. We are glad that we will get a white Christmas. It didn't quite seem like the Christmas season when the weather was so warm.

See, I wish I had that much fun in the snow. My feet got wet earlier, and they are still freezing!

UH! I hate snow! I can't wait to move to San Antonio where it's warm! Terry says it's always in the 70's or 80's! Oh to be out of the snow! Sorry, I just have to rub it in!
