Leavenworth, WA

I'm giddy with the falling of the snow.
I laugh as it catches in my eyelashes and the fur of my coat.
It's such a white world of firsts!

First snowball fight.
First snow bunny.
First snow angel.
First below zero experience.
First time to wake to ice inside the windows.
First time sledding.
First time to eat snow.

Over Thanksgiving break, I went to stay with the Turnbulls, and experienced many of my firsts with them.  It was a splendid visit, and all of us were very sad when it came to an end.  While I was there, we played in the snow, played duets for hours, read books, watched Wives and Daughters, cooked, baked, ate, played in the snow some more, etc, etc. It was such fun!

Reading with Uncle Matt

Making a Thanksgiving poster

All us kids.  (Now picture all these people on that little yellow sled Bella was pulling. Yeah, we're awesome.)
