A Romp in the Snow



On Wednesday it snowed quite a bit. Well actually, it started on Tuesday and continued through Wednesday, but that's beside the point. The point is it snowed, and it was my day off so I was lucky enough to be home during the first snow! The kids couldn't wait to go outside and play so after about 45 minutes of tracking down mittens and gloves, taking a picture of "Tough Guy Everett" finding snow pants and getting them all bundled up, and trying to get them to hold still for a picture on the couch, we made it outside! We had a blast and the boys ganged up on dad in a snowball fight. Also Everett decided to take his gloves off and play in the sand while I was taking the Gargoyles from Halloween off the roof. Then he was crying because his hands were cold, but I couldn't just put the mittens back on because he now had sand stuck to his cold, wet hands. So I cleaned them off and put them back on, and he still was cold, so he sat under the carport on the steps for a minute until he was warmed up.

These are the cutest pictures babe! I hadn't seen them. Maybe if I hadn't been such a poor sport about the cold I could have enjoyed it too.

I love the excitement that the first snow brings...too bad we don't carry those fun feelings through the whole winter!
