First snowfall

We had our first significant snowfall yesterday. I think we got about 2-3 inches of the heavy, wet snow! The kids were really excited to go out into it and burn off some energy. I think Isabella sat in front of our window for about 30 minutes just staring at the snow asking when she could go outside. I told her when Dad got home from work she could go out. I didn't think I could handle 3 kids outside by myself. I eventually gave in. The kids really enjoyed playing on their sleds and using their shovels for the first time this year! We managed to survive about 30 minutes outside before Isabella wanted to come in. I think next time I will wait for Dad. It proved to be too much for me trying to manage Liam who doesn't have snow pants yet for the season! He did not want his mittens on and he didn't know what to do with himself once he got into the snow! It was hilarious! I'm glad I was able to capture these memories! Today the snow is melting, but I'm sure there will be tons of more snow fun in the coming months!
We are looking forward to Halloween this year. Ava will be a Queen, Isabella a Bride, and Liam will be a Lion. The kids have already broken in their costumes and have worn them several times around the house! I'm excited for them, hopefully the snow will have melted!
I have started my Christmas crafts. I have been working pretty steadily on them for the past 2 weeks. I like to get things started before the rush of the season begins.
I hope everyone is enjoying the last remaining days of fall!
Thanks for stopping by today!
