Snow much fun...twice!

Two great snows so close together. The White Christmas was the first one in like 47 years and it was glorious... So dreamy. Here's our first snow in pictures:

He's a hugger, what can I say? Poor Hannah.

Ow ow!! That's sayx-eey!

End of snow one...beginning of snow number two. Lots and lots of snow. It was beautiful. Until the next day when the thick sheet of ice settled over the top of the powder. Zeke loved throwing the sheets of glass, I mean ice, and hearing them shatter.

It was so fun that Chris got to stay home with us. Thanks Wells Fargo. We spent the day with good friends, our snow tradition. Hannah missed out on much of the snow due to naptime, deep snow that was hard for short legs to plow through thus lots of faceplants, and meltdowns due to the aforementioned. Chris and Zeke went to Holly Tree golfcourse and sledded for hours with the big kids.

Zeke and JoAnna, she 's the one with the neon orange man hand mittens.

Karen, me, Lindsey, and JoAnna

The mamas got some sled time in the backyard after the dads got home from the golf course. It wasn't quite the golf course, but we had fun while the dads were stuck with hungry cranky kids. Nothing says snow day like hot chocolate, sledding in freezing rain, kids crying because of "frostbitten" hands, Wii Just Dance, chili, and staying in your pj's all day.

  1. awwwww! love the pictures and oh my goodness, look at all the snow that fell last week!! So excited everyone had a chance to play in it!! Your family is SO cute and it actually reminds me of being Hannah's age -- I experienced the major snow storm of the 1980s right around the same age! Have a great week :)
