Unenthusiastic but ready to sled.

Violet and her snowball.

Violet clutching her snowball safely wrapped in Mama's hat on the ride home.

On a sled ride around the neighborhood before bed.

Lulled by the sound and movement of the sled being pulled through the snow, and the warm safety of her big sister's arms, this little two year old fell asleep.

Heavy baby sister.

Feeding the birds.

Deer tracks and bird seed.

We have been loving the snow. We went sledding yesterday. Pen was a wild sledder and Violet pulled a snowball around in her sled forever. When it was time to go home the snowball naturally came with us. It is in the freezer now.

Last night we went for a freezing walk around the block with the girls in the sweet sled that was passed on to Pen from my cousin Melissa years ago. Now three darling little girls have enjoyed this sled.

And today we all went for a walk in the woods and fed the birds and forest animals, like we meant to a week ago for the Solstice. Snow is beautiful, especially the first snow, especially when seen through the fresh young eyes of happy children.
