The next morning I felt like a kid all over again when I awoke and couldn't wait to peer out the windows hoping to see a blanket of white on the ground. And when I did, I had to wake the girls to see it too. You don't wake sleeping children unless there's a good reason and, for me, snow qualifies as one of those reasons!
Snow is not something our children know what to do with...or how to dress for. After a bit of protesting by the little people against ski bibs, boots and gloves, we accomplished bundling them up and heading outside.
|Bundled and loving it|
Next up, sledding. There wasn't exactly a ton of snow, but when you live in the desert any bit of snow is enough for sledding!
And, of course, you can't be in the snow and not make a snowman...or at least a giant snowball.
|Proud of the snowball she rolled all by herself|
Andee was less into rolling snowballs and more into just straight up eating the snow.
|Can't get enough of this stuff|
And the adults got time to spend together without the demand of schedules and to-do lists. So thankful for good friends.
