so we had about 3 inches of snow early this morning. i love it. when i got up (shortly after 5) i came out and opened up all the blinds and turned on the outside lights so i could watch it. it reminds me of when i was a kid and my mom would come and wake me up in the middle of the night to show me when it was snowing. we all went out and played in it (minus dave who went to work). shane built a mini snowman on the front porch - we put a baby carrot on for a nose. then i helped him build a bigger one in the yard. it still wasn't very big- i don't think he had the patience to roll the snow around anymore to make it bigger. still, it's a nice snowman. we got some sticks for arms, a full-size carrot for a nose, some bark for eyes and fir tree branches for hair (that was my idea). then shane went to wyatt's to play, and layla, micah and i took a walk to the library where the employees were out building a HUGE snowman by the entrance. it's supposed to snow more tonight and then switch over to rain tomorrow. i love the snow! it struck me as odd, as i was out walking today, that when i'm outside in the snow, i'm rarely cold. but if i'm out in the same temperature weather, same coat, etc., but no snow, i'm freezing! why is that?
