- Winter Wonderland

Today we had our first significant snow event in the Minnie.  It started right around midnight and it didn't stop until around 6pm.

Early this morning, when I woke up like a little kid on Christmas to see had happened while I was asleep...

Snowfall throughout the day.

Emma and I have gone out just once.  I think that this kind of weather is best experienced cuddled up on the couch watching seasonal movies in between watching the flakes fall.  Although, the way snow drifts on tree branches is one of the prettiest parts.

Emma is not a very big fan of this much snow, and I don't really blame her.  With her short little legs she basically has to swim to get anywhere.  She managed to find a line of uncovered ground under a row of bushes...but then there was an avalanche of sorts, and I took this as I was carrying her back inside.

Snow is one of the best backdrops for a black dog.

Coincidentally, as the snow was starting here, Jaclyn and Matt were headed to he hospital for the arrival of their new baby girl.  She is absolutely perfect and I can't wait to meet her and spend time with my favoritest family of four.  It's a day that would be filled with magic regardless, but coupled with the snow, it's been emotionally wondrous and festive.
