After the Winter that wasn't, I was pretty discouraged about ever running thru the snow again. We got about an inch last week so I pretended it was deep and fluffy, but, alas, it really wasn't the same.
Well, Thursday I woke up, headed outside and stepped right off the porch into about 12 inches of fresh snow. Worried, I glanced up at the big thermometer Mom has out there and, fortunately, it was only 24 degrees so I knew it wasn't gonna melt away like last year.
Because it was Mom's work days we didn't get to play down in the field until today, but today we DID PLAY!!! I was nervous cuz it is only 22 degrees today, and it's snowing lots again so I was afraid Mom might decide on a Saturday afternoon nap instead.
But, as soon as she got home she dug out jackets for all us little ones, grabbed her cameras and a big blanket to put on her chair and away we went. I was soooooo happppppy, I ran and ran and ran, then I burst out of the snow banks, then I ran some more. Because we were all so excited to be in real snow we didn't even chase each other, we just ran and ran and ran.
Because Mom was in a hurry she forgot to shut the chickies in and I discovered their pen was open so I raced in. I was checking them all out and picking which one I was gonna eat when Momsie called me. She called me several times, and she had that tone of voice, you know, THAT tone, so I decided I'd best head back to her quickly. Good move, she praised me up and down, BOL!!!

We had about 3-4 inches on Christmas which was really rare for here! And a lotta fun!
