Snowy Saturday

We got blasted!!! About 14 inches of snow fell down on us Friday night into Saturday, and the kids could not have been happier! We decided that this would be a great time to build a snow fort with the kids, and that is exactly what we set out to do!
Reid was so excited to put on his snow gear....oh, and also the snow gear that was to go on the snowman we were to make. But...the kids got too distracted in playing in the snow, and the snowman never got built. It was such a fine, flaky snow, it wasn't great for packing anyway.You can see how fast the flakes were falling. It was hard for Ellie to even look at the camera. It was really coming down fast.

Reid helping build the fort. Our recycle bin makes GREAT cubes for forts!

Love those red cheekers!

He loved the snow. But he hated his gloves. His time outside was limited because of this.

Ellie and Sophie having fun. We are holding on to our hats, because supposedly the next storm is coming in a couple more days. Aughhhhh.....I think Spring is sounding better each day!

WOW, that is a lot of snow and looks so beautiful from this side of the computer. I am such a wimp when it comes to cold weather. Enjoy those forts and snowmen!
