Winter's First Snow

Last Friday we had our first snow here in PA. It turned out to be quite the cozy day. Jake's Mom, (Grammie) was here and we together, (well, mostly her just showing me) made homemade sticky buns. The house smelled amazing while the kids played outside and made the most of the falling snow. Tyler spent an hour here: he just laid in the snow with his two favorite trains and played and played. Only did he come in when I told him it's lunchtime. He was in his own little train land crashing, burying and sliding "James" across the snow. Good thing he has a warm snowsuit. I so enjoy watching him pretend, it's so fulfilling for me to see his imagination at work. Never a dull moment with him that's for sure! Here's Grammie and Tyler playing together later that day. Notice the shorts and short-sleeved shirt that he LOVES to wear, if it's not in the wash, it's on him and his legs are always cold to the touch. At least he has clothes ON, he's been into this being without a shirt thing lately, (*sorry to Tina for the influence on O*)!! I think I'll have to pack those summer things away so he's forced to dress warmly!!

Looks like such a cozy day! Isn't it wonderful when the kids find ways to occupy themselves with their imaginations?? :)
