Snow Day #4

We are onto snow day #4 around here. This is unheard of. It snowed all day yesterday. We got almost as much as we did last week. Everything is just beautiful. Snow is everywhere! We were enjoying another day playing in it. 

they were apparently playing king of the mountain. silly kids.

can you spot the cardinal?

Bella thought she needed to sniff out the situation!

Whoa, Bella, get out of the way!

Kade thought it was so funny that he almost ran into Bella

Snow Day #2

Since this is the midwest, they don't really know how to clean snow from the roads...hence we had another snow day! It was a beautiful, sunny day. We woke up to shimmery snow and sunny, clear skies. A perfect day to play outside. The kids went to find some neighbor friends to play in the snow with. It was nearing lunch-time, so I thought I would go find them. I was delighted to see they had found themselves a little hill to sled on. They were having so much fun.

When dad came home, I coerced him to come sled before supper. A little family sledding! We had so much fun. My kind of sledding, no injuries possible!
