First real snow...

December 1st and we had our first real snow of the season. I am sure the ski resorts were excited, Sam was excited and I was just like really couldn't it just know in the mountains? But I ended up having a great day mostly because Sam was so full of joy at playing in the snow I almost didn't mind that I was freezing cold ... almost. Sam loves his camouflage coat and snow pants. He thinks he is pretty cool so I do too. Hope you are having a wonderful winter season. Looks like we are getting more snow today. Sam will be happy. The ski resorts will be happy. So I will force myself to be happy about it too. :)

Loves to you all...
