The snow kept coming yesterday, off and on, and in the late afternoon it actually started to lay. (It's still snowing today, by the way.) The kids were very excited to take Maggie out in her first snow, and she was cute to watch. She sniffs it and then sort of does this snort/half sneeze to remove that which is now stuck to her snout. Pretty comical.
Til last night there was enough snow on the ground to crunch under my feet when I took Mags out for her final 'potty' of the night. I love being out in the still darkness of a snowy night. It also makes me REALLY excited for the holidays. This is one of my most favorite times of the year...maybe the most favorite, although it's a definitely a toss-up between the holidays and summer (summer's longer, warmer, no school, vacation - and of course, baseball - so I'd be really torn to have to choose one or the other). But there's just something so peaceful about the holidays and winter and snow. Just makes me want to be very still and quiet and savor every moment.
