A Winter Wonderland

We have about six inches of snow. It is absolutely beautiful! Brian finally got home this morning so we can enjoy it now. Snow Princess
Snow Prince (with a chapped lip)
This is the most snow they've ever seen. When I was a little girl, we always had BIG snows! We would play, build snowmen, and sled for hours! I also have this memory of my dad rolling the snow into these HUGE hay bale looking things. It took those Snow-bales forever to melt! Another obsession I had when I was younger (ahem) was not wanting anyone to walk in the front yard because it messed it all up and didn't look as pretty with footprints. I've had to get over that (at least outwardly) for the kids sake. I just love the look of a freshly fallen blanket of snow!


Building a snowman
I had a loud cracking sound about 10:30 last night. Look what it was! Our neighbors tree split right in half!
Snow angels
Parker eating a "piece" of snow.
Claire found a better snack and started eating the cookie crumbs that fell off of the snowman.

When Parker sings Frosty the Snowman, he always sings "corndog pipe" instead of corncob pipe. It seemed very appropriate for our snowman to have a corndog pipe!
Here's Frosty....or as Parker called him "Jack Silver Whipped Cream Head"
Check out our neighbor's snowman. This picture doesn't even show his grandiosity! He's truly about 8 feet tall. He's huge!
After our fun in the snow, we had to have hot chocolate of course!

I'm planning to stay warm and cozy in the house for the rest of the day!
