Guess what we had in our backyard this morning...

SNOW!!! How exciting! It snowed for nearly an hour! Oh boy were we excited! It's only the second time it's snowed here since Tassy was born. The first time she was two or three and it only snowed VERY briefly and I didn't get any photos (not that you could have seen anything anyway!). Tassy gathered snow from the outdoor table and brick wall to make snowballs. She went thru three pairs of gloves! The snowflakes were really big and fluffy. She's still wearing her jarmies cos we'd only just got up! It wasn't even that cold outside. It was perfectly still so it was beautiful. But our hands got cold so we came inside for one of these. :)

Sensational Yvette so glad you got some too.

I could believe how heavy it was or how big the flakes were!!!

The only time I have seen 'real' snow was in England so I was out in it too.
I have never seen it snow like that here in Canberra before.

Damn it was cold though.

How exciting to have snow falling in your own backyard! Must've been chilly though... but fun all the same!

Have a lovely week Yvette!
