First December Snow

Gabe had been yearning for snow to stick.  He got his desire this mid-December.  Snow was in the forecast, and he was out of bed in the morning to switch on the internet wi-fi for the latest update.  It began to snow just before school.  By the time they finished school at the Farmhouse, they got to go out and build a snowman.
I'm staying warm, holding baby Zeb, and looking out the window.

First Real Snow of the Year
Gabe put up the lights so pretty for our front door.
Suited up for chores in the gathering dusk.
Snow gear.  Gabe is sure to get some sledding and x-country skiing in about the place too.
Gorgeous morning after the snow.
Dad called just to share the beauty of the morning with us.

Coming home from "homeschool."  I get to teach five special pupils modern history and general science in the afternoons.
Eclectic get up for staying cozy- alpaca beret, wool buff, rabbit, and thermal fleece gloves!  Mom and Dad found me that jacket many years ago, second hand, and its luxurious warmth fits me like my own skin.  I really don't feel the 21º F temperature in it.
At home in a book.
Still snowing....  We are taking a Friday snow day with dry powder building up and Nutcracker rehearsals pending in the evening.  Three Nutcracker casts may take the stage on Saturday with one morning dress rehearsal!
