The kids were SOOOOO excited that we had snow in the forecast (although a little bummed since it was a Friday night storm and probably wouldn't give them any snow days). They kept a close watch on the weather all week and were squealing with joy when the snow started falling!
Ellie wanted to go outside and check it out.
She was just a little excited!!
When we woke up in the morning, the ground was covered.
The kids got bundled up in their snow gear and headed out to play.
Fun in the snow.
Making snow angels.
Playing in the snow.
Such a sweetheart!
Trying to sled down the street-- there wasn't quite enough snow, nor was it icy enough to sled well, but they kept on trying!
Our house covered in snow.
He's such a good big brother and let Ellie try and bury him in the snow.
Ellie REALLY wanted to ride her trike in the snow and got frustrated when she couldn't get it to go.
One of the perks of having a teenager! After he did our driveway, he went around the neighborhood shoveling driveways with a friend.
Lexie and her baby snowman.
Fun in the backyard!
We wrapped up our chilly snow day playing boardgames and everyone was ready for an early bedtime-- playing in the snow for a few hours (or shoveling driveways for six!) really wears you out!!
