We were all ready for relaxing down day after the business of the previous day. So in an effort to keep the adorables as content as possible for as long as possible, I kept tucking them in my bed when they awoke, whispering it wasn't quite morning. Well the king size bed only accomodates so many wiggly babes. Eventually I relented and answered their wonderings about the morning with an affirmative. At once, bear sat straight up and said "theres snow mommy! ".
Well that's all it took to get children of all ages to quit the coziness and run to the window. Sure enough, snow covered the ground and was still falling from the sky. The boys had off for conferences so we quick ate breakfast and began the quest for snow gear.
There has been lots of growing since the last time it snowed. We were able to scrounge together tops and bottoms and hats and mittens for all the darlings.
They were so cute.
Maxer immediately got to work shoveling the haf inch of wet snow from the ground.
In other ayla news, somehow she has contracted hand, foot and mouth disease. Of course this required another drs visit and lots of concern. im thinking brother bear brought this home from preschool. Either that or crazy bounce is the culprit. either way, we are never leaving the house again.
The snow was wet and heavy.
bear enthusiastically joined forces.
What a blessing this snow day was! Entertaining and then melting right away. The adorables went through every piece of winter gear we owned . Each time they would venture outside, they would come back inside dripping wet. The corn stove worked hard to dry out the assortment of warmth before the next adventure. Happy to see thesnow come, and happy to see the snow go!
