It is absolutely BEAUTIFUL outside right now! It's been snowing big fluffy snowflakes most of the day. Boise doesn't really get that much snow, and some winters we don't get any, but this year is shaping up to be an unusually snowy winter.
Because snow in Boise is so hit and miss, we take every opportunity we can to go play in it when it's around. I grew up in a different part of Idaho where the winters were a lot more severe. We had heavy snowfall there every winter and I can remember how much fun it was to go out and make snow forts and snowmen. It was always a really fun part of the year.
Our kids don't get that many opportunities to play in the snow, so we bundled them up and went out there a little while ago to build a snowman. Our snowman kind of failed, but we did have a good snowball fight!
We played until we got too cold (which didn't take very long!) and then we came in the house and had hot chocolate. It's supposed to snow all week here, so I'm looking forward to having a snowy Christmas. That's pretty rare around here! I love snow in December, but ask me again in January. Once Christmas is over I hate it and I start looking forward to spring!
Here are a few photos of our fun in the snow today:
