Yesterday was the first day of fall, and apparently today was the first day of winter! We woke up to snow, coming down in big wet flakes blanketing the trees with their poor leaves still on and causing the branches to sag with the weight.
My first thought when I saw the snow was excitement over seeing how Riggs would react to it. As soon as I heard little sounds coming from his room, I burst in (probably way too happy and excited for that early in the morning, poor boy) and nabbed him from his crib, hurriedly stuffing him into his vest, hat, mittens and boots and carrying him outside with me to see the snow.
He was baffled at first and looked around him with a very skeptical look on his face. But he quickly warmed up to it and was smiling and reaching for the flakes in no time at all. Luckily I was able to catch it all on video, and I've watched it a few times because it's just too cute.
I hope all you non-Alaskan's are enjoying your first week of fall, with it's beautiful colors, crisp air and that lovely fall smell that seems to seep from the trees and the ground this time of year. The snow is just starting to taper off here, and thought there's about an inch accumulated in some areas around the yard, I'm sure it will melt by this evening and we'll be back to fall by tomorrow. Happy Monday!
