Snow shots

Last week we got between 2-3 inches of snow. Because that's the most we've had all winter AND quite possibly the most we'll get, we all bundled up and had some fun.

Here are a few pictures from our time in the snow.

Ella all bundled up in her snow gear. We never can seem to find the right type of gloves for snow play and that usually limits how long they last. Those purple gloves did surprisingly well for basically being a piece of fleece.

Here's the cute snowman that Ella and Matt made. He is sportin' blue eyes just like the rest of us. It was a great way to use up some old blueberries.
Ella and her friend Evan, along with Matt's help, made another snowman, named leafy. Goldie does her business in the backyard and I was kind of freaking out that the snowman had more than leaves in it. But Matt assured me it didn't. Not sure how he knows, but I trusted him.

After her nap Catherine decided to join us. It was pretty obvious that our kids have not had alot of exposure to snow play because Catherine was really confused about putting on snow pants. She stripped down to her diaper and really was not sure why she should wear two pairs of pants. But once I explained that it was like a coat for your legs, she was good to go. I amaze myself daily with the wisdom that I am imparting to my children.

The snow was super sticky - perfect for snowmen and snowballs. Catherine was so funny because she would try and throw a snowman and it would stick to her hand almost everytime.
I just love pictures of kids all bundled up. Makes me want to squeeze them!

And finally, what snow experience would be complete without a few snow angels!

I'm hoping we have a real snowstorm and get to go sled riding. One of my other hopes for this winter is to go snowboarding again. It's been four years (hmmm, wonder why??) since I've last been and I would really to get back into this winter. Even if it's just once or twice so I know I can still do it - that would be great, and a reason not to put all our gear up on ebay.

I agree, they look adorable all bundled up! You cracked me up with your concerns about leafy--how gross would that be? I totally understand your crush on Nathan Fillion. Have you seen anything else he's been in? I've looked at his IMDB page and I don't recognize much.
