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!

trying to ride her trike
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.

snow day
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!!
