Snow! At Last!

You may or may not remember Avery’s bitter disappointment when she woke up on Christmas morning and discovered that there was NO SNOW!!! She has been complaining about the lack of snow since then. How can there be winter with no snow??? So today, at last, her wish came true! We finally had some real snow!! Thankfully the painful earache Avery woke up with during the night last night had already healed enough that she felt up to wrapping up and going out in the snow this afternoon! I doubt there would have been anything that could have kept her from it! The boys were so excited too. It had just started snowing as the boys and I were driving to church, and by the time we came out, the grass was coated in snow and big, fluffy flakes were falling down thick and fast! Oliver laughed and laughed about it! Brogan exclaimed, “It’s Christmas!!!!!!” We rushed home to play in it. Although poor Ollie boy missed out on the fun because he went down for his nap. But hopefully he’ll get a chance to play in it a little bit before it disappears tomorrow. I was glad for the chance to use all the snow gear we had for the kiddos! It took forever to put it all on, but it was totally worth it because they were able to run, crawl, and roll around in it without getting cold or wet. Hip hip hooray!

Daddy starting on the snowman! Brogan getting ready to tackle him. Then, “Daddy pushed me down!” Ha!

Trudging up the hill, where they happily sat and threw snow for quite some time! Avery making a snow angel. Mommy was too chicken to actually go out into the snow to get a picture of it! (I had a headache! And I was on the phone!)

I was confused as I sat watching out the window when I saw Gabe walk past with his bike. He hooked up the sled to his bike and pulled both the kids through the snow around the house! I love him! (I got some video, I will post it. Gabe is in charge of our videos these days, because he’s so good at it!)

Brogan was the first to get cold and come inside for hot chocolate. Avery stayed out to help Daddy build a snowman!

Daddy and Avery’s snowman! Hehehe! It has been snowing non-stop since then, so this is what the snowman looked like 5 minutes ago!

I love the snowman, and what fun for the children. I don't think we are going to see snow this winter, shame.
