Winter Wonderland!

Yesterday it snowed at my house! That's right, real snow. And I'm not talking one of those brief snow falls we get once in a while in Southern California that lasts 20 minutes. This was some serious snow, people!

If you look really close in this photo, you can see it starting to fall. Mommy was upstairs taking a shower and she saw the snow start out of the corner of her eye. She rushed down to tell Daddy and me.
Here's a little video right after it started. We were all stunned!
OK, now that looks like snow on our storage box, right?
And that sure looks like snow accumulating on the window sill.
Daddy and I were brave enough to venture outside to check things out. He brought me a little snowball to touch. Cool!
I got to touch the ice on the table, too. I loved it!
Here are Mommy's silly snow boys.
A few hours later, it was STILL snowing when Tutu, Sir and Aunt Darlene had arrived for a visit. Tutu took this photo of our street from the car.A lot of snow was on the ground by that time so we all ventured out to play in the white stuff. Now that is some snow!
Here's a video of some of the fun. I had to check on my toadstools, as you can see.
I had to reach down and touch it.
Wow, when you stomp around, you leave footprints. Awesome!
Check out those prints.
Sir even made me this snowball.
Here I am checking it out. Cold!
Aunt Darlene had just arrived here from Miami the day before. She is doing her clinic work right here in Los Angeles for two whole months. Yeah!
If you remember, Aunt Darlene is a former New Yorker. Only a New Yorker would wear high heels with no toes in the snow. Silly!
Those snowballs Sir was making soon turned into a little snowman. There wasn't quite enough snow for a big snowman so the little one was just right. Tutu was impressed for sure!
It was getting super cold by that point so we headed inside and warmed our fingers in front of the fire. Much better.
The snow continued to fall well into the night and was still coming down quite steadily when we all went to bed. Mommy guesses we got about 12 hours of snow all together. Here are some outside shots once it got dark. You can really see the snow falling in these pictures.

Soon it was time to say goodbye to my snow visitors. I am so glad Aunt Darlene is here! We are going to have so much fun!
Thanks for sharing in my snow adventure, Tutu, Sir and Aunt Darlene! It was a blast!
This is what it looked like when everyone left. Be careful out there!
So there you have first snow experience! Pretty cool! Too bad it was gone by the time I got home tonight. I hope it snows tomorrow, too!

The snow looks so pretty all laid out nicely on your front lawn! Beautiful!
