First Snow Day

It is January 10 and we finally got snow for the first time this season (it actually started falling yesterday). The kids were so excited! I wish I had gotten a picture of Lauren this morning when she woke up and scooted up a chair to look out the huge front window in the school room and marvel at the snow. After we did school this morning and ate lunch, we went outside for about an hour. Evan shoveled a little then left me to finish up while he and Lauren played. Lauren enjoyed making snow angels; Evan liked throwing snowballs (which I tried to get a picture of, but the batteries in my camera died); and I tried pulling them around in the sled, but it wasn't working out so well. I love the first snowfall of winter!

Lauren had to upgrade to a pair of Evan's old snow pants, and we got a good laugh out of it because she was puffy around the waist. See the look on her face? It's kind of a half smile, half upset look, but she was joking around because it didn't really bother her. Not sure where she got this analogy, but she said she looked like an old lady with puffy legs.

Lauren created a snowball and pretended it was a frog. She called it froggy and asked if he could live in our freezer. I would have said yes except our two freezers are very full of food right now. She asked if he could live on the front porch chair and I said yes, so that is where froggy is sitting right now. She keeps checking on him to see if he has melted yet.

  1. How fun! My Kansas kids still get a kick out of all the snow up here and play in the snow everyday after school! And of course go sledding at recess...
