It's finally snowing!!!

Marissa and I have been wondering if we would get as much snow as we did last year. I don't know the answer to that but I am grateful I put up the last of my Christmas lights outside on Saturday. This is what we woke up to this morning. I figure if it's going to be cold outside we should at least have snow to play in!

When I went out to shovel the snow off of our very large driveway ( you can put like 20 cars in it) I'm sure with all the snow and my little red shovel it appears even larger, it usually takes me 3 hours to do most of it. Anyway, Harley our dog just loves snow and was outside helping me this morning. But this year we have kittens who haven't seen snow before. These kittens have funny personalities...Dixie for instance is the whinier, she is always crying about something and she has the most pathetic meow. So this morning when she saw the snow she sat inside the garage and just looked confused and refused to come out except once and she ran under the car where there was no snow. On the other hand we have this cat named Ginger. Ginger thinks she is a dog, anyway that's who she hangs out with the most. At first she was very cautious, then she was attacking it, batting at it and running around and sliding in it. It was pretty funny. I just feel sorry for Marissa the first real snow day and she comes home from school sick.
