Thank You King Winter
...for visiting us for the very first time since we moved here four years ago!
We had SNOW yesterday in Virginia! Who knew it could happen? It was only about 2-3 inches which is nothing for me growing up in Syracuse,NY but for the people here that's a blizzard! Everything was shut down, Kevin didn't even have to go to work!! We had a fun family day. I can't wait until we move this summer to somewhere that has the four seasons so we get winter again every year. We love winter. I personally can't stand the heat at all so living in Virginia has been challenging for me (weather and season wise,only) to say the least.
Highlights from our day-
nah nah you can't catch me
There are mama made mittens under there somewhere
Trying some snow
As soon as I woke up and saw the snow falling I had to run outside in my PJ's and put food in the backyard bird feeder,squirrel feeder and front yard bird feeder. I was afraid the birds wouldn't find food since it never snows here.
Mrs. Thaw was sweeping away winter on our nature table but since King Winter made his appearance we decided to quickly re-do the table and add a new postcard and felted snowman made by Little Elf's Toyshop on Etsy.
We made a paper cardinal to celebrate too :)
Long live Winter!!!
