Imagine our surprise when, a few days before Thanksgiving, we woke up to 4 inches of snowfall on the ground. That’s the thing about Colorado weather–you never can tell what’s going to happen at any given moment. Just ask the Halloween pumpkins still on our porch!
“Dude, did you know this snow was coming?” “No, dude! Did you?” “Hey, Dude! You’ve got a little snow hat on your head!” “Dude! They need to bring us some scarves. I’m not used to working in these kind of conditions.”
It was a tough call for the kids…go immediately outside to play, or drink a little deluxe hot chocolate with breakfast and leave the snowball fight for later. They decided the snow was too good to pass up, so the snow clothes were brought out and snow boots were put on. The Sassy Princess was the first one out.
I could tell she only had limited memories of our snow from last year, so it was a new curious exploration for her. While the older two went to work making snowballs and creating little ice igloos, the Sassy Princess walked around investigating ‘cold’ and ‘ice’ and ‘snow’ and ‘really, really cold!’.
I spent my time investigating the rose bushes that were, until the snowfall, still producing flowers.
Once we had our fill of the outdoors, we came back indoors to enjoy a little treat in the form of our favorite drink.
Life is good!
“Dude! Can you see them inside, drinking all that hot and toasty chocolate?” “Yo, dude! That’s cold! Or, hot. It’s cold in it’s hotness!” “So, dudes, do you think they’ll offer any of that to us?!”
