these last few nights we have had our first real snowfalls of the season! snow is magical, truly magical. both me and my husband are from the west, so although the cold is so harsh and strange, we will gladly accept it along with lovely white fluff falling from the sky! we have a tiny little deck off of our apartment that usually looks out into a dirty parking lot (okay, and a pretty building across the way), but it's been beautiful lately! we just sit and look out at the winter wonderland we are in. eli hasn't quite figured out how all of this wet stuff ends up on him, and is puzzled. but he did enjoy making hand prints in the snow atop our barbeque tonight, so i think in time he'll learn to love it. i think our uncovered deck is just big enough for us to make a mini snowman on when we get a big haul of snow (which is supposed to be soon!) all in all, we love snow!
