The first snow is always exciting. I remember waking up as a kid every morning hoping for the first snow. And now with my own kids it’s fun all over again. Now personally I don’t want snow in October, especially since fall just started and I’d like to enjoy it, but we woke up to about an inch on the ground this morning. It wasn’t in the forecast I read so it was a complete surprise. I don’t think James remembers snow from last year because he thought it was pretty cool. Last year he pronounced snow with an S at the end, snows, but it sounded more like nowse. It was soooo cute and I’m going to miss him saying it that way. James had to go outside right away so he and I got our boots on. I couldn’t get him to wear a jacket and he looked terribly cold to me.

When he first saw the snow from the window he asked right away where all the dirt was. ha ha, I told him it was under the snow. So he had to go check out his dirt pile:
Then I showed him he could eat it. He thought that was pretty cool and tried snow at different points all over the back yard. So cute!
By that time Gideon woke up. We’ve had two really really hard nights with Gideon (lots of crying for hours during the night). He woke up with a horrible cold this morning. I’m starting to wonder if maybe he has an ear infection (or maybe two ear infections) and that’s why. It’s terribly unfair to be sick on the first day of snow.
An hour to two later Titus got up and said, “It snowed! We have to go play in it!” He was a bit behind, but we got everyone ready again (James still refusing to wear a jacket. What are we going to do this winter?? ha ha) The snow had already started to melt by then.
Titus and the boys made the cutest little snowman!
All the snow melted by the end of the day, except maybe stuff in really shady spots and the bottom part of the snowman. Maybe we will still get a fall after all. About three or four weeks ago someone told Titus when you can see snow on the foothills/mountains Denver gets snow 2 weeks later. And she was pretty close!
