This is almost a week late but oh well. Last Saturday night and Sunday morning a winter storm blew through and left several inches of snow. It wasn't really that bad but we got a call that church was canceled. The kids were happy and I was happy that I hadn't put on my pantyhose or makeup yet. The kids really wanted to go outside and play in the snow. Mickey, being the great dad that he is, took them out. I took pictures from the step and watched from the couch as I knitted. (I never said I was a great mom.) They had so much fun. They started with building a fort. It didn't get very big since the snow wasn't really the packing kind.
Then Mickey blew up the snow tube/sled thing. He loaded all three kids on it and pulled them around. After the second turn he was already running out of steam.
The kids played outside for maybe an hour or more. They came in with red faces and cold hands. Time for hot chocolate. Somehow we kept busy the rest of the day, I can't remember right now. Here are a few more pictures from that snowy Sunday.
