Winter Wonderland

Ahh, winter! We had some fun outside in the yard in yesterday's little snowstorm. It wasn't as much snow as was predicted (we got 5 or 6 inches instead of 8-14), but it was a very pretty snowfall and it looks so picturesque on the trees right now. This is one of the few good things about winter!

The snow was the perfect texture and weight for great snowballs. We got Peter with a few good ones!
Christy the snow dog.
This is the first time John tried out his new snowsuit from LLBean, which seemed to keep him nice and toasty, except for his little nose and cheeks.
This tree in our front yard has branches that droop down to the ground under the weight of the snow. We might chop the whole tree down eventually, but for now it's kind of cool.
Industrious Peter. I don't know how we survived last winter without a snowblower.
Here's John underneath the low-hanging tree branches.
"Oops, what did I do? I didn't think I was that strong!"
The snowy woods around our house. So pretty!
