We woke up this morning to snow falling. Steady and fast. It seems to melt as fast as it hits the ground. The pine trees look like their 'frosted' with vanilla snow icing. The yard has a few snow flakes scattered. Enough to say we have snow on the ground.
I would rather not see snow (stay) in Oct. But we do live in WI. There are about 3 months we do NOT use our wood stove. June. July. August. I've lived most of my 29 years, with an exception of a spring/summer/fall in IA. I don't know better anything else. I could do without the frigid, freezing, below zero temps. I really don't mind the snow. (It does create extra work for our steep driveway).
But I can stand our WI winter's for 9 mos outta the year for one, simple, yet important reason! It makes our kids happy! I missed capturing their faces and excitement when they discovered (quite early) this morning that it was snowing. I could barely feed them fast enough. Nor could they pile on their snow pants, boots, hats and mittens quick enough. They come in just long enough to warm up by the fire, let their mittens dry off, eat a quick bite. Then they're off again. If only we could be a kid again!
***And speaking of kids... I'm changing the address for our kid's blog. I'll likely change it tomorrow (Tues). So check back to get the current address!


  1. I can't believe snow already. I hope that we can avoid it here in Michigan until after October.

  2. I heard there were parts getting snow. I don't mind the white stuff too much either...but could do without the biting cold.

  3. Can't wait to see all your snow pics. I do not like the cold weather. Although if it has to be cold, I would love to get some snow. Thanks for sharing.

  4. I love it:) As long as we get a few more days like today...high 46 and SUNNY!!! We shall be outside this afternoon thats for sure!:)
