First Snow 2008

It's official. On Friday, November 7, 2008, we had our first snow of the season.

The kids were understandably less than thrilled when they got outside and found very little snow on the ground. Still, they were motivated to get their coats and hats on. lol

Mom discovered she'd forgotten a very important key in getting ready for the year. In my haste to "organize" the clothes earlier this year, I forgot to fix the boys' coat zippers. Thank goodness they also have velcro. Add "replacing zippers" to this list of things I have to figure out how to do this year. Also add "Break down and buy a sewing machine." I find myself sewing more and doing some things by hand seems like a recipe for disaster. (Besides, I think Strata, who is already making clothes, would really benefit. I know Lian would get a kick out of it as well.)
