First Snow of the Season...

...and Lily's first snow, too. We got about 8 inches overnight here in Marysville, and the forecast is for 1 to 3 more today and tonight. The whole north Sound up to the border got dumped on. We assume this is the first snow that Lily has ever seen. I doubt if it snowed where she was born in southeast China...not that she would have remembered it anyway.

Here are a few shots of her experiences today. She sort of reacted like she did her first time standing on the sand at the beach. She didn't quite know what to make of it. And don't laugh at her makeshift gloves. We didn't have any waterproof gloves, so Julie improvised with some fleece mittens covered by a plastic sandwich bag and rubber bands.

The snow is awewome. I only wish I could have stayed home any enjoyed it more, but I have to work. I hope Lily enjoyed her first experience with snow. The gloves do make the outfit(hee, hee,). I always enjoy seeing the pictures on your blog. It gives me a little insight to how she is really growing.

See you later. Rose Jones
