Snow, Yes, Snow

Yesterday we got a piddeling amount of snow in the afternoon. Zoe chose to stay inside with me but Tait took Kaiya about for just a few minutes. Then, later in the evening it really started coming down good and we woke up to a nice amount to play in. (The yard is so up and down, I won't give you a quote on the inches.)Now, I have been thinking all season that the girls really need some nice, new woolen mittens but, honestly, I didn't think we were going to be getting any real amount of snow at all this year. So, here is the snow and no mittens, because, of course, I want some nice woolen mittens, not icky acrylic, store-bought mittens. And this brings me to this morning, knitting two little pairs of mittens just as fast as my hands would go, as the little ladies were so eager to get outside. Whew! My hands are tired. But they are the proud owners of new woolen mittens, lovingly (and speedily) knit by their mother. Blue for Kaiya (her favorite color), and red for Zoe.
And off we went, sliding and stomping through the snow. And here in NC snow means no school and no work so it was so nice to have hubby home to play with us.

The girls are adorable. We had snow here but it was too cold to get the kids out in it today. Isn't family time so much fun?!

WOW! You're an awesome knitter. I stand in awe of you.

We got snow here too today, but it was too cold and way too windy for playing. Hoping the wind dies down by tomorrow.

BTW, I've given you an award on my blog! Check it out: www.huggermuggerblog.blogspot.com

I love snow days! I don't get them, I'm in health care but I love the thought! That little warm green hat with the star is so cute!

This comment is for your post below. I didn't realize that you were so passionate about natural child birth. I had Mia at a birthing center, and it was an AMAZING experience--one of the best days of my life. I tried to get my other friends to have their babies there, but our culture has most women thoroughly convinced that they can't handle the pain. :(
