Currier and Ives
Eight inches of heavy snow on the ground. It began snowing yesterday evening, and came down thick through the night. Hubby went outside this morning to shovel the walk and alleyway. Half an hour, it took him. Half an hour! Compared to four hours of shoveling to clear our driveway at our old house. He even helped the neighbor lady shovel out her place.
The boys went outside for a few hours to play with the neighbor kids. Graham came inside at one point asking for a carrot and buttons. The carrot was an easy find, but the buttons could have been anywhere amongst the thousands of boxes still stacked around our house. He settled for a scarf and a hat, and used rocks in leiu of buttons.
First snowman in our first snowfall in our first winter in our new house.
