Snow Day!

The new year started of frigid!  I'm not talking about a nice crispness in the air or good weather for a cute scarf and hat.  I'm talking about sub freezing temperatures for days straight.  The kind of weather that makes you dread walking from your car to the indoors and definitely the kind of weather made for keeping itty bitties inside.  The stage was perfectly set for snow.  This past Wednesday, bread and milk were scarce in our town in anticipation for the snow that was to come.  On Thursday, school was dismissed early.  We got home just in time for the flakes to start falling.  It was thrilling to see how excited Grace and Emma Kate were.  Grace was jumping up and down wanting to go out and build a snowman right away.  She taught Emma Kate to say "snow" so Emma Kate kept repeating "No! NO!"

We bundled up to see if we could catch some snowflakes on our tongues.

And, when Daddy got home, snow playing commensed in full force!

By the way, getting 4 people bundled up in multiple layers, snow suits, coats, hats, mittens, and boots takes about the same time that it takes Congress to pass bills.  But, it was so worth it!

  1. Love all the snow pictures! I can only imagine how much time it took to get everyone dressed to go outside. Probably longer than you actually stayed outside. :)
