Snow Day! (Number One)

Our first snow of this winter was this past Tuesday!

The boys were ecstatic to get to stay home from school and play in the snow. With only an inch or two on the warm ground, the roads were not a concern at all. I think sometimes they close schools just to celebrate rather than because of logistics! Yeehaw!

DC made us chocolate chip waffles for breakfast, then we all headed out for some serious fun.

Hummer said, "It's Christmas!" and could not be convinced otherwise.

Here's our new friend. Hummer requested that we find him a MAGIC hat.

Here's my effort to get a little artsy. Our new friend is sagging in the background. Exacto was holding him up, yelling, "Mom, come help me!" I answered, "Just a couple more! I'll be right there!" I'm so sympathetic.

Frosty was not long for this world. This shot was taken at about 2pm.

And now as I'm writing this, it's starting up again, with 10 inches forecasted for Little Rock! CRAZY. It's looking like tomorrow will be our 2nd snow day of the winter. Then of course by next week it's supposed to be back up in the 70s. :)

yeah if I know photoshop by then I could try to help you out:) I will e-mail you that recipe sometime, or perhaps i will just do a post on it:)! I can't believe that was the first snow! I lost track of the snowstorm we had here and are still having! But, I am glad you kids got to play in it how fun...I miss snow days they were the best, and sadly you don't get them at college!

How fun! We had a little snow last week but it melted before we had a chance to play in it. =(

I can't wait to see you guys! Maybe it will snow while I'm there so I can make my own snowman!
