Winter Wonderland!! March 1, 2009 SNOW!!!

We woke up this morning to
When we got up there was a little over an inch on the ground, but by the time it was all said and done, we probably had b/t 3 and 4 inches. Obviously, it was Nathan's first snow and the first one that Jacob remembered. He was two last January when it snowed just a little bit. Anyway, the kids had a blast and it reaffirmed for me that I am SO glad it's just a once a year thing here. It's beautiful to look at, but such a mess and takes so long to get bundled up to go out and 7 minutes later they are freezing and back inside!! We played outside twice and warmed up in b/t with hot chocolate.

The snow-covered trees were beautiful!

the snowman!!

he lasted about 3 minutes before he was "all done!"

the largest snowball of the day!

One day, I will get a picture of all 3 looking, smiling, cooperating;
for now, this will have to do!

this was our second time out to play.
Sweet little child...

she thought about trying for snowman number 2, but her gloves were still wet and it took about 2 1/2 minutes until her hands were hurting and we ran back inside!!

Glad to see your little snow bunnies out in the snow:) Doesn't it just frustrate the poo out of you when you work really hard to get a picture of everyone looking? That's a struggle for me and just two kiddos.
