Snow Day

Oh, the snow! I do remember loving the snow and being out of school when I was a kid, but as an adult snow days are so different. My kiddos woke up the first morning to ice and no snow and there were lots of tears. However, tears soon turned to squeals of excitement when it finally started snowing and snowing and snowing and snowing. They were so excited that we managed to keep them inside until later in the afternoon when there was actually enough snow to play in. Of course it was still snowing and it was blowing and it felt like little daggers of ice on your face....brrrrrr. Thankfully the next day it was perfect snow play weather. The only problem we had was that the snow drifts were so high the girls were worn out from just walking in the yard. I guess that is what happens when you have short legs :)

Molly is standing on the tallest snow drift we had. She was so excited that she was taller than than the Jeep.

It took us 45 minutes to get bundled up and out the door for play time. Thankfully we took a potty break BEFORE we put our gear on.

The only picture I got the first day because it was too cold to take my gloves off to take pictures. Brrrrrrr

The front of the house and the solid sheet of ice that was our driveway. It was bad!!

Poor Molly got stuck to the slide

This may not look exciting to anyone else, but this piece of ice had my kids litterally shreaking they were so thrilled with it. Attention grandparents: save your money on presents, just freeze water for us next year.

Our very first experience with snow ice cream. Sarah said, "yummy, this is good, tastes like snow". Please also notice that it was 22 degrees outside and felt like 8 degrees and we came inside and the girls wanted to put on short sleeve dresses....what?!?!?!?
