Just a week ago I was enjoying the balmy fall weather and taking photos like these:
Then, I woke up this morning to the wintry hush of quietly falling snow.
By the time the kids awoke it had accumulated a little more. So everyone decided to go out and play in it.
They jumped on the trampoline and even went sledding! Afterward, we fired up the wood stove for the first time this season and then spent the day inside making applesauce and baking bread. (Yes, and listening to Christmas songs :-) Aaaah.... we're ready for winter.
