Lovely Snow Day!

Overall its been a VERY mild winter, which I am really ok with!  We just chuckle when they forecast snow, however this time it really came!  Over 4inches of white winter fun!  All the fun memories of childhood snow fun come rushing back.... but how do you share with children the joys you can have in the snow except to join them? :)  To be outside with big flakes falling on your and the fresh snow crunching under your boots, ah it was REFRESHING!  (I know all of you from up north think I am silly!  I hadn't realized how cooped up I've been!)  

  Well thought we'd share a few photo highlights for you and wish you a Happy Valentine's Day! 
sledding, snowballs and catching snowflakes!

of course they build a jump guess they do remember a few things

someones not to sure if this is safe!

family snow fun (all this before school :) yep they have a mean teacher!)

at 2 and a half she is sharing her wonderful personality!   

The whole snow family with lots of great builders!
Mom helped make the snow child and she got to wear someones gloves and hat (which someone  was pretty sure at nap time we should go back out and save!)

Not sure if those are curls or rollers on the head but creative for sure!

Maggie and her snow lady

Gabe complete with silver buttons and a heart scarf for valentines day!

Camo man did a great job on his snow guy!

Very creative, from a mohawk to getting the gloves to form the peace sign

The happy Mr and Mrs Snowman..... as of this afternoon thanks to the temps rising to 43 and Mr sun shining, these are the only 2 left standing!  The warm weather has already toppled all of the "children" which was tragic for a few!  What a fun day enjoying the wonderful blanket of SNOW!  Thank God for the little joys in life.

Happy Valentine's Day ~ hope its WARM and LOVELY!
