Falling snow

People were all a flutter with the news of impending snow last week, so it was very exciting when it started to snow on Sunday morning. The huge backyard trees look spectacular with a few inches of snow.

And the ones in the distance look even prettier.

Naptime was especially peaceful today – there’s something about falling snow that just hushes out all the noise (the real kind and the busy kind).

PS. With potentially great timing, I finished a new hat for Kevin. He’s still wearing the one I knit for him in 2004, even though it’s shrunk and has seen better days. The yarn is a repeat – the same I used for the bottom of the acorn hat for the kiddo. I liked the color too much not to reuse.
