First Snow for Holmes December 23rd

December 23, 2009

It snowed last night — not like it did in D.C. or in upstate NY, but we had a couple inches of snow.  In Albuquerque, even that little bit counts.  The kids are bummed out because they have already been released for Christmas break — so, no snow day.  Holmes found the stuff fascinating.  His dad (who has seen snow only a couple of times in his life), was there to show the puppy the ropes.

So Dad What Do We Do 12-23-09So, Dad, what do we do with this stuff?

Is It Edible 12-23-09Should I eat it?

The stuff is everywhere 12-23-09It looks like it’s everywhere

Chase Loves SnowThis is great stuff, son.  Let’s frap!

. . . and so they began moving too quickly for me to catch with the little digital Olympus.  The sun is out, the snow will be mud by this afternoon.  No more is predicted, so, as usual, we will not have a white Christmas in the valley.  The ski areas — that’s a different situation!

    Isn’t a puppy’s first snow so fun and special? I love seeing their reactions.

    Getting snow just a couple days before Christmas is still very festive!

    Whoopee! Creel enjoyed his first snow a week ago and was so, so glad we had bought him a custom made snuggle fleece coat in a Greyhound size. Ahhhh…

  3. “I’m dreaming of a mud Christmas …” Yeah, not the same.
