Lucy's first snow

Lucy didn't get out into the snow last night because she refused, flat out, to wear a coat.

First Snow

I couldn't believe how big the snowflakes were. Too bad the camera didn't get any detail in the flakes.
Maya made her first snow angel. Leeloo walked through it, so I didn't document it. I will take some of the girls out in the giant snow field tomorrow.

Someone said we got 7 inches of snow, but I think it was more like 4 or 5.

Here is her second snow angel. She did not love getting snow all over her.
