We were afraid that Jacqui would plop down in the snow and make the same "Take me inside NOW" face that she made a year ago ... but that's because we forgot who she was a year ago. A year ago, she wasn't walking and she certainly wasn't curious about anything that might potentially cause discomfort.

This morning she played in the 6+ inches of snow with her daddy. They made snowballs and snowfolks, and stomped through the powder and touched the trees and got matching pink cheeks and hands.

She's napping now, with a bellyful of lunch and a head full of stories and ears full of promises of more snow-play this afternoon, while snowflakes dance to a windchime accompanyment and the sun plays peek-a-boo through the clouds.

Jacqui recommends ...

Jacqui's favorite book for the past few weeks has been Kitten's First Full Moon.

(Note that I don't get an subsidy. They're just convenient.)
