Snow Day






Thought I would share some pictures from our BIG snow storm we got. :) Ok, so it wasn't a storm and it was just barely snow, but still Isabella and Daddy had lots of fun this morning. Those of you from places where you normally get snow won't understand this, but when we get any kind of "snow", it normally turns to slush and ice rather quick (actually, we normally just skip over the snow and get ice storms) because of that and the fact that we southerners don't have any way to take care of the roads, things kind of shut down around here. Which is why Daddy got to stay home from work for a few hours and spend some time playing with Isabella in the snow. The lack of snowy weather is also the reason why Isabella is wearing a snow jacket that is closer to Amelia's size than hers. :) When Isabella got up this morning, we showed her the snow outside and she was so excited. She didn't even want to eat breakfast, I had to make her go potty and get dressed because she was ready to just go outside -- in her PJs. The first thing she said to me was "I need a carrot for his nose", she was already thinking up the great plan to make a snowman -- whom Daddy named "Melty" since that is probably what he is doing right now. Then Daddy got the sled out and they were able to sled down our little hill. She had so much fun (and Daddy did too!) Amelia and I didn't get in on any of the action. I would have bundled her up and taken her outside, but it was actually raining a little while they were out there playing and I didn't think she needed to be getting wet, especially with her little cold. I think she would have enjoyed it though. She and I stood at the door and watched as they were sliding down the hill and Amelia just squealed. Maybe later I'll sit her on the porch in the "snow" and get a picture of her first snowfall. :) After they were all done playing, they came back inside and I made them some hot chocolate and they sat by the fire -- what a fun wintery day. We don't get many of these types of days so we enjoy what we can!!

WOW! What a fun morning! Isabella's face is priceless in that sledding picture. You really captured a great moment there! You got more snow than we've had all winter. Daddy and Isabella look like they are sledding down the side of a mountain. You could have really us fooled if Kenny had put on a helmet, ski goggles and laid on his back with his arms criss-crossed :o) (but I guess Tucker's head would have ruined your sledding secret)

What a terrific little snowman. Looks like a lot of fun!

BTW. I finally posted about our adoption process. (It's taken me forever to write something.)

Hey! Thanks for your kind comments on my scrapbook pages. Did you have to make photo albums too? I'd love to hear more of your adoption story sometime.

Your snow pics are so adorable! Looks like fun.
