It was a thick, fluffy blanket. METRES of snow. It looked like Mother Nature realized that Christmas this year was bleak and snow-less, and remembered that she had sacks of white frozen stuff that she forgot in the back shed. Ok, so lets just dump it on them now - better late than never, right??
So we had our first-ever snowy Easter egg hunt. Oh, Lordy, was it cold. By the time the boys got out there, the snowstorm had even covered some of the "bunny's" tracks - and eggs. But mostly the colourful papers looked awesome against the fluffy white backdrop.
I've gotta say there were moments of beauty in the snow, though. In the afternoon the grey cleared, and we had perfect sticky snowball snow with bright blue skies, a roaring fire indoors, Easter egg chocolate handed around... a hybrid Christmas/Easter feeling was good enough for us.
So happy Easter everyone - hope yours was good, no matter what the weather!
