The boys got their own snow shovels for Christmas and boy, did Joseph get right to work. He was puffing and grunting away and he really kept at it.
Even when he fell on the ice he did not lose his grip on his precious shovel.
Dominic liked his shovel too, but was not as gung-ho as Joseph. It was a strange snowscape, to be sure. Some places were swept almost bare and then in places there were large drifts.
It was a little difficult to sled, as the snow had been largely blown off the hill. The kids enjoyed it anyway. Although Joseph would only get on the sled if Mommy held his shovel for him.
"Mommy, this snow is really cold!"
