First Snow of the Season!
Wow, wow, wow! We had our first snow of the season!! It didn't measure up to the foot we got last year, but it was enough to cover the ground and build a snowman!
The boys could NOT wait to get outside! Oh my gosh, you would have thought we were keeping them in jail the way they were protesting! After Noah woke up from his nap though, we bundled them up as warmly as we could and out the door they went!
Both boys had fun making snowballs and throwing them at each other. It was so funny when Noah came inside because he had a hood full of snow in the hat attached to his coat that had fallen off his head. Thankfully, he had a stocking cap on as well.
At one point Luke actually came in crying because his hands were so cold. We washed them in cool water and warmed them up with a mug of hot chocolate.
I'm certain they hadn't been in for more than 10 minutes and they were ready to go back at it again. We had to wait for daddy to warm up though before making one more trip outside.
The next two days were below freezing so the snow actually lasted a few days. Today though the last of it is melting, leaving us still with enough time in the season to hope for another snow day!!
