We had our first snow, yesterday. It didn't last long, or stick to the ground.
But, the flakes fell all morning. Long enough for the girls to enjoy, with mugs of hot chocolate to keep them warm...
...while they waited for the gingerbread scones to come out of the oven (they were tastier than they looked).
When the children were younger, we always had a Gingerbread Man unit study on the first real snow of the year. They've grown past the study for the most part now, but still enjoy looking back through the picture books, and decorating gingerbread men - which we will probably do once we get a real, sticking snow. For now, it was scones, and whipped cream with hot chocolate, and a nice afternoon together in a warm kitchen, watching the last of the first snow melt away.
