First Snow

A couple of weeks ago we had our first flurries:

We were excited, but today we woke up to this:

Nice, huh?

Except that it was a really heavy, wet snow that brought down a lot of branches. My parents had some serious tree fatalities. :(

This afternoon we made this:

Margarita wanted a "traditional" winter snowman-but I finally convinced her that a Halloween snowman would be so much funnier given the date. Poor Pedro's worried his costume's going to be stolen tonight. It's so cold out though, I really doubt it (and if it is, I really hope there's another one at Target).

Here's Juan Carlos "holding" our little Snow Vader.

The funny thing about Colorado is-the snow will all be gone by tomorrow afternoon and the sun will be out. I love it!

Great snowman. I am jealous. We haven't had a decent snow yet.

Awesome Halloween snowman, Gabriela! That is great. Our storm brought the tree casualties, mostly down on power lines so there were tons of people without electricity. We only lost power for one day. I do also love the sun in Colorado!!!!!!
