The First Snow

I'd like to say I'm surprised that we received our first snow of the year last night, but I know better. Nevermind that it was 80 degrees this past weekend, we live in the upper, upper midwest where Mother Nature loves change. And while I certainly don't welcome the white stuff in early October, it was fun to hear my 3-year-old daughter this morning exclaim "Mum! It snowed! Now we get presents!" I wish that was the way it worked, kiddo.
