So it wasn't exactly the Nor'easter some were talking about coming in these parts, but we did wake up to snow. Not just any snow, but the First Snow! And because I'm the Mama, and Mama's get to do such things as this, I declared today an official Snow Day. Home from our regularly scheduled activities and plans, instead we'll celebrate the coming of winter, nurse a little bit of the sniffles upon us, and stitch, bake, read, and play. There were no objections from my babes, nor any surprise, really, when I made the announcement. They had already declared snow angels, snowpeople and sledding the work of the day.
