Snow induced giddiness!

My son and I were listening to the radio and acting giddy while we were stuck in some traffic this afternoon. It was snowing and a few songs into our giddy spree "White Christmas" came one - one of my all time favorites - so the giddiness was taken up another notch (and the volume). In between verses I decided that even though it would be close to 5 o'clock by the time we got home we needed some snow play!

I like being the executive at my job so I can veto the semi intense dinner I had planned for one that came out of the freezer as soon as we walked in the door. Hurriedly and full of excitement we bundled up and got out he door. He even put on his hat all by his "delf"!

He's pointing saying "Dat way!!! Play! Kiks!" Boy was it fun and I had another opportunity to be grateful for the snowsuit I found on sale last year that was too big and only worn a few times. It now fits perfectly when it's really needed!!

After about an hour of playing with some friends down the street we headed home for some ovaltine, Christmas music, and to add the finishing touches to dinner.

I just LOVE this time of year, truly the most wonderful!!

I can't wait to be able to take my kids sledding!! We haven't had enough snow here to do that yet.

I love this time of year too! It finally got cold again today after a 60 degree warm up in the North East. Who would ever think it would be in the 60s on December 1st in NH. Oh well, tell N I would love to join him for some hot ovaltine!!

I, too am just giddy these days. We played out the snow today and I just can't get enough of this wonderful season!

Wow! He looks soo cute all bundled up!! Where we've moved, we haven't gotten any snow yet! It's cold, but no snow! And I don't miss it either! Ha!

Honestly, I really miss the snow. We had one year in MI before we moved here where it was 60 today! Just not right before Christmas! You look so warm and cozy. Enjoy!
