Hmmm...It's still fall, right??

Hmm... It's Saturday October 29, 2011 - Halloween is on Monday and it's still fall! I'm not crazy right?
Quick note about those purple jeans that i'm wearing in the above picture! They didn't fit me before but with all the light jogging that I've been doing, they finally fit! Yay! Woooohooo! Just one of my many milestones to come :)
So...What is that white slushy stuff under our feet?? Snow.. snow.. it's snow I tell you!
Yesterdays forecast for today was snow but we just couldn't believe it! How many times have we been tricked by the weather forecast - Ha! But guess what, the trick was on us and it wasn't candy.
It was about 11:00am this morning when we took a peak out the window and "whoa" to our surprise all we could see were big fluffy snowflakes coming down. And thus began Miguelito's mission to try and convince mami to take him out and play in the snow, you must keep in mind that I've been running around like a loony all week and I just wanted to lazy around all day today and sleep in late, which I couldn't because out of all the days in the week Miguelito decided to get up at 7:00am today - why the nerve of my little boy :P 

All it took Miguleito to convince me and my handy dandy camera to go and let him play in the snow was an hour, an hour in which he stayed glued to the window with Manhattan watching the snow fall to the ground  and screaming "Mami look, look, at the snow, Mami run the snowflakes are bigger, mami *sigh* i want to touch the snow". I remembered how much I loved (I still do) snow and so we started to dress quickly just in case it stopped snowing! As we stepped out our building all i could do was gasp and laugh, the sight of New York in October covered with snow was just AMAZING! And it's one of the most beautiful sights ever, not to mention Central park covered in snow is just Beautiful!!

Miguelito in front of our building excited to be outside
Leaving his hand print on someones car.
One of Central Park many entrances.

Excited with his first snowball of this season.
Ha! The wind was throwing the snow to his face.
We had fun and froze a little as we walked down the street and s little bit into Central Park, it wasn't safe for us to go all the way into the park. Due to the fact that the trees are still so green and full of leaves and with the weight of the snow there were a lot of tree branches falling, making it very not safe to walk inside. It was lots of fun nonetheless! Now I can't stop thinking of how our Winter will be when it actually gets here - brrrrrrrr!!!! This is only the beginning!
Cheers to many nights of drinking hot chocolate or coffee and watching movies while I cuddle up with my boys :)

Now I will leave you with some of my pictures for my usual Sunday Snapshot post!
