We got our first snow of the year this week. We got about an inch or so of heavy, wet snow – perfect for the first snow balls and snowman of the year! Then funny part is that it’s still Autumn here and I haven’t raked the yard yet so it was covered in leaves, making our snowman more of a snow-leafman. The girls ate their first snow of the year and remembered how cold it is to sit in snow without wearing snow pants. I, on the other hand, realized I better get some boots for Chloe quick. Winter doesn’t wait for anyone around here!

Why I do what I do ~ The same day it snowed, it melted. The next day Chloe was looking out the window and said, “Mom, look it’s melting!” I asked her what was melting. She said, “The grass! And then there will be snow.” To sum things up … The snow melts and there’s grass underneath. When the grass melts, there’s snow again.Have you liked Domestic Cents on Facebook yet?
