He suggested making snowballs. I insisted that there wasn't enough snow. He proved me wrong.

The pets also enjoyed a bit of a frolic.
I dug into my pockets to discover that I really need a new pair of "playing outside" gloves.
Yes, this was what I wore, because I was too
...this was the "mate". Um...opposites attract? o_O
But at least I have a pretty hat.
This was one of the small indulgences I knit for myself just prior to J's birth. Sadly, the gorgeous woolen socks got forgotten in the wash and now belong to T (the heartbreak of shrinking and unintended felting!). I'm going to be extra careful with this. It's better suited for physical activity than last year's Love Hat. The pattern is the Amanda Hat...although I think I may call this one Amandy, since the yarn is "Andy's Merino". ;p
Not pictured are T and I zooming down our awesome back hill. We have the best sledding around, right in our own yard. WHEE was that fun!
So, C...T...me...dog...ducks. Are we forgetting anyone? Anyone who might have featured nicely in a pictorial essay entitled "First Snow"?
Yeah, J had his own agenda for the afternoon.
