We got our first big snow yesterday, and this is what my friend told me when I asked why people were shoveling their sidewalks while it was still snowing.
Newbie snow person that I am, I figured it would be more productive to wait until the snow stopped before you started to shovel. Not so, apparently; she went on to explain that the snow can get very heavy, and it's easier to go out and shovel the snow in two rounds rather that one.
As we were walking back from meeting Andy at the bus stop, the boys helped a neighbor clear their sidewalk - on their hands and knees.
Back at the house a couple snow angels appeared.
After I cleared our sidewalk and driveway (not on my hands and knees, but with a boring old shovel), we headed in to decorate some gingerbread cookies that Sam and I baked the day before.
Look at all the beautiful cookies we made!
Decisions, decisions! Which one should I eat??
