Snowflakes that Stay on My Nose and Eyelashes!

Usually on snow days, I bake chocolate chip cookies and watch movies. But today, instead of movies, it the Inauguration. And sad to say that we're out of butter, so no cookies to be made. Popcorn will have to do.

We had fun this morning stomping around in the inch of snow that fell here, but alas as soon as it arrives, it's gone. I do wish that the snowflakes would stay on our noses and eyelashes a little bit longer. But what a great day for a snow day, the chance to watch history in the making as a family.

At least we had enough to make a bowl of snow cream!

And snow angels (kind of)

And snow balls!

Oh, I just love the snow. Of course, we've probably gotten a bit more than you. (~12 inches this past weekend) Aren't freshly-baked cookies the best. Sometimes, I try to bake them for my boys so that they arrive home from school just as they're coming out of the oven. I love the photos of your family trying to catch snowflakes on their tongues.
