We finally got some more snow! We had a little snow before Christmas and zero in January. So we were really hopeful that we'd get some snow this month. I just wanted enough for Olive to build a snowman and it happened last week! We got several inches in the late afternoon and it hung around for a couple of days. It was beautiful, the roads weren't bad and we got to play in it. I guess that means it was the perfect kind of snow day :)
We had snowmen for breakfast :)
I had a stash of tiny pancakes in my freezer so this meal came together really quickly!
Spent a lot of time just watching it snow.
Fletcher just kept banging on the windows and smiling.
I think he likes winter as much as we do.
Kevin hurried home to play in the snow with us. A perk of living in an area on Eastern Time is that it doesn't get dark until so late. So right now it's about 6:30 when it gets really dark.
This was Fletcher's first time playing in the snow. He LOVED it and would shriek with delight while we were outside. He hates wearing shoes, but didn't mind wearing his snow bear suit. I held him most of the time we were outside, but it was fun to let him sit in the snow for a couple of pictures.
Olive finally agreed to wear snow gear from head to toe this year and stayed so warm! Her overalls were great, loved her gloves and her coat fits for the third winter. Target has great snow gear!!
Olive requested a carrot nose and button eyes. We had carrots, but no giant buttons. She was displeased and had to be convinced that circle carrots were appropriate substitutes.
Olive's first snowman! It lasted a couple of days and she was sad to see him melt.
Tiny snowman or Giant baby??
Have you gotten much snow this year??
I know the ground hog said six more weeks of winter,
but it's definitely starting to feel like SPRING here.
