I love the snow! We finally got some snow Friday, but I had to go to school, so I couldn’t play in it with my boys. It was still mostly here on Saturday so after a yummy breakfast of pancakes (made by my amazing hubby) we went outside to play.
There was just enough for it to be pretty and for us to make snowballs to play catch with. We had fun even though there wasn’t enough to make snow angels. I even made a tiny snowman (we named him Olaf–just like everyone else that made a snowman) 😉 I used a little piece of orange peel for his nose. LOL The boys were so bundled that TJ said he didn’t like being “puffy” and wanted to go out with no big coat or gloves. Daddy was kind enough to come out and take some pictures (despite his dislike of cold temperatures).
After that we had hot cocoa and watched a movie before naps and heading to church. When we got out of church we were surprised (and a little excited) to see a snowstorm! Although I was not as excited as usual about driving in it. The trip from Seattle to Bonney Lake was a little nerve racking for me but we made it save and sound. 🙂
I was able to make a full sized snow man (with a little –tiny–help from the boys) He still needs eyes and a mouth, but we’re working on it. 🙂 I’ve never been able to build a snowman before, this snow must be different from what we usually get.
We got to sled down our driveway (I was so amazed I found our sled without any help from Tony (he had to work today). I shoveled a pile of snow at the bottom to keep us from going into the street. Our little Olaf was beheaded by TJ after he was buried in the snowstorm.
TJ made a snow angel But Gabriel wasn’t interested in laying down in the snow. And then Dex alerted! Snow apparently brings BGs down! 😉 I’ve read about this happening to other people, but this is our first experience in the snow with T1. We stopped playing and had a jelly bean break. We all enjoyed some yummy sugar before heading back out into the cold. Can I just say one more time, I LOVE the snow! 🙂 and I’m hoping we can head back out one more time today, before it melts away. :0)
