First Snow of the Season

We received our first snow of the season yesterday. We had an accumulation of about 5-6 inches in our yards. Evy enjoyed playing in the snow, even in the freezing weather of 30s'F. She played until her cheeks and nose were red and finally I had to call her in when I spotted she had the running nose. She was so happy when she woke up this morning and the snow was still here. She was shouting, "The snow is still here, the snow has not melt yet, can I go out and play?" Of course I let her played til her heart content this afternoon. She came in and said, "Look mommy, I built a mountain!" Luckily today was not as cold and the sun was shining, that's why I let her play on our deck so that I could see her. I took the picture above when the snow has melted about 50% away! Didn't think of taking a picture before but I want to show V how much snow we got.

Hi Lily,
Hahaha...yeah lucky for Evy because she lovessss to play in the snow. Not me though, snow day just make me lazy and want to cozy up in the house!

Yup Mandy! :)

V, I think all the kids love snow, but so cold leh.

Hi Christy,
Yes, snow is beautiful! :)

Hi Andaliman,
I can see that you love winter!

Hi beachlover,
Luckily I never have to shovel snow. My man job! Now, he has a snow blower to help him and it's more like playing with the big man toy than working up! How I wish I can still wear a short and t-shirt to run errand! Guess I really not a fan of cold winter days! :P

Peony ah,
After you live here for more than 10 years, you don't want to play with snow anymore. LOL! I don't decorate my house during Christmas leh, maybe will try one on my neighborhood.

Oh thanks Diane! :)

This will the 1st year I think my son would enjoy the snow and will be looking forward to building a snowman (or two).

Yesterday, our temp was around 21*C. Today's forecast would be around 15*C! I guess, winter would be too far away!!!

You and me same ... would rather walk around summer temps!! No fun running errands with a 3 yr tagging along!!

So much snow! What a different feeling it must have been all these winters. I need to go stay in the mountains in California to get this.

I prefer summer too. Anyway, we don't have snow in Sydney during winter. Would love to experience a snowy winter though.

In Sydney, the summer heat is
beginning to seep in.

I really like your blog and am starting my own blog ( too. Please do visit.
