With giddy delight, he watched the first fluffy snowflakes twirled down from the evening sky.
Soon he was gathering up snow gear. Within an hour, he was outside with his little sister teaching her the delights of fresh snow. I could only see the occasional twinkle of lights from their sleds as they zipped down the hills in the backyard. They paused for a few moments to create a friendly snowman outside our door. Red cheeks, big smiles, and twinkling eyes~it was infectious!
The next morning a couple more inches had accumulated and Mr. Snowman greeted me!
They were both up and outside by 7:30 AM playing in the snow. A couple hours later they reappeared for breakfast, and disappeared again with friends.
From snowball ambushes to sledding to snowboarding to cool snow forts...two very tired kids tumbled back into the house at dusk and gathered around the warm fire.
After four long years without snow, Kade was in his element!
