Our Little Snow Day

After a pretty dry and cold January, we finally saw a little of the white stuff covering the ground.  Brody had pretty strong opinions about the white stuff when he got out and felt how cold it was:  "It's told.  It's yuck."  Haha!  He really enjoyed it though but didn't like when his hands started getting cold.  He loved wrestling with his big brother in the snow, making a snow angel, and just walking around and making tracks in the snow.  I loved hearing his opinion about the snow now that he is verbally communicating more.  We only got a couple of inches this time because we have had such dry air over our area that has limited the amount of moisture that gets through the atmosphere and falls to the ground.  The snow that finally got through was very dry and powdery so it was not good for making snowballs or snowmen.  It made very good snow cream though.  Yum!

We didn't get enough snow for sledding so we just did sliding instead.

And he cleared off the slide.

Snow "ice cream"

And now we may be due for some more of this winter weather this week.  Our neighbor that lives behind us is a local meteorologist, and he is predicting that Tuesday and Wednesday could bring us between 4 and 8 inches of snow and maybe some ice on top.  The snow sounds fun, but I could do without the ice!

  1. Fun day! I'm glad you got a snow day, if only so you could take such awesome pictures. Ha ha ha!

    I was thinking the exact same thing when I saw Evan's coat.......what? Green? Everyone else is in red.

    There is just something about a snow covered tree. They are just gorgeous. Not like I see that in my day to day life, ever, but I totally agree.

  2. Fun, fun, fun! I love how your family always has such a good time together. I'm also super jealous that you got not one, but two great family pictures! =) Ya'll need to come teach us a lesson on family pics.

  3. Mmmm... snow cream. I have to remember to make some this year!

    And tell Brody that his twin Rachel never keeps her mittens on either and then gets very grumpy when her hands get cold.

    I hope you enjoy your snow days and that the ice continues to stay away.
