We woke early to snow. Everyone was up and eating breakfast by 6:30 and out the door playing in the snow by 7:00.
They. Were. Excited.
It wasn't even light out yet!
I brought out the camera and was happy I did because I loved the effect of the blurry snow falling.
I have been praying for snow/rain for months because we desperately need the moisture out here. It snowed all morning and we made the most out of it.
The kids and I all bundled up right after breakfast and played for over an hour before we needed hot chocolate and popcorn to warm up. After a movie we bundled up again before lunch for more fun time.
I was so excited to see the snow this morning because it was sticking to the ground. We've had a few snow flurries during December but the horizontal winds blew all the snow, I desperately wanted to fall in my garden, straight to Oklahoma.
In fact the snow we had a couple weeks ago, weathermen were actually calling for blizzard conditions which made me think, being that I grew up in Indiana and all, that we'd be getting a foot of snow. In reality the snow we received barely covered the ground because the 50 mph winds blew it all away. So in Kansas wind determines blizzard conditions, not amount of snowfall.
The morning light cast a soft blue over everything. So pretty.
Being that we live in Kansas obviously we don't have hills. I had forgotten that we had sleds packed away in the garage from our trip to Colorado a couple years ago. Needless to say the kids were psyched to play with sleds.
Even if they had to pull each other around.
Okay Father Winter...anytime you want to dump another 2 inches, or 22 inches, of snow on us I promise I won't complain!
