But the fire is so delightful!
...and the kids are delighted.
After five winters in Oklahoma, this snow-in-the-mountains girl is ready for a true winter.
This week, we've gotten our first taste of snow for the winter. I know that before long we will be wishing it would all just melt away, but the novelty is still here for us now.
The kids are required to bundle up in hats, coats, gloves, snow pants, and boots for school each day. They are more the pleased about it too.
