first good snow

Last night we got our first "real" snow of the season. It was just a few inches of snowy goodness, but it's amazing what it does for the spirit...

These folks (over there in the picture) are the newest residents in our backyard, courtesy of Regina and Boomper, the Boy Wonder.

The stylish fellow on the left is sporting an ensemble called the "Build-Your-Own-Snowman" kit (just add snow) we received from Bob and Sheila (Boomper's godparents), and the lovely lady on the right is rather smart in Regina's hat and scarf. Very nice.

As I finished clearing the driveway, Regina and Boomper had a lot of fun playing in the snow and sledding down the big tree mound. It wasn't a big hill, but with some snow and a snow saucer, the laughter was fantastic.

And as classic as can be... he didn't want to go inside.

Now, along with learning all about the fun of playing in the snow, Boomper gets to learn the harsh reality of "snow-life".... because right now, it's 37 degrees... and raining.
