First snow

We got our first significant snow of the winter today.  It really wasn't all that much at our house - maybe a few inches.  Nothing like the 28 inches we got in one storm several years ago.  When I got home from work, the girls were eating dinner, and I shoveled the driveway.  They wanted to come out and play, and squealed "Yyyaaaayyy!" when Beth told them to come put their boots on.

Anna had been talking all day about the snow and wanting to make footprints and snowballs, so she finally got to.  She walked all over the front yard making footprints, and the snow was perfect for snowballs.  Cara had a little bit of a hard time walking in the snow, which came up to her knees in parts.  They batted at the plants to make the snow fall off them.  Cara ate some snow - Anna didn't.  I think this might have been the first time Cara played in the snow.  They ended up playing outside for an hour, and there was a lot of crying when it was time to go inside, so they had fun.
