An Early Winter

There is just something Cooper loves about the first snowfall of the year.

He gasps. He points. He giggles while dad shovels. He watches intently.

He even seems to count the flakes as they fall.

When we go outside, he laughs when the flakes hit his head and hands.

I promise you before the day is over we will dance in the snow at least once to the songs in his head.

I’d tell you he loves sneaking a taste but one of you will tell me about the tragic effects of eating snow. Which I will respond with I’ve probably eaten a whole snowman at this point in my life and I’m still alive. And then I’ll get annoyed so let’s pretend no snow is eaten here.

Nearly six inches and counting in Minnesota. And in October no less.

We can’t find the hats or the mittens and last years snow pants don’t fit any of the kids. I’ve already yelled about the melted snow on my floor. This is winter.

His dad and I are trying to be as excited as Cooper about our early snowfall. It’s not working though.

It’s going to be a long winter.

66 days until Santa comes. Cooper wanted me to share that with you all.
