This week, it snowed! It started on Wednesday afternoon, holding off until the boys were home from school, but falling well into the night, giving us a snow covered Thanksgiving.
And, what do you do when it starts to snow and the whole family are actually at home? You go for a walk of course, cementing (again) our reputation for being a little odd…
I have to admit, it was pretty cold and wet, and the snow fell quite heavily on us… But, the squeals of delight at being out in the snow (even better as it was actually snowing) made it worthwhile.
Thursday, we awoke to a good covering of snow, but with the morning spent with friends and the afternoon spent cooking and chatting and eating, we didn’t make it outside to play for any length of time.
But, it snowed again over night and this morning there were a good few inches on the ground, perfect for jumping and building and sliding; and snowballs!
Sadly the snow was a little too dry for good snowman building, but it was fun to scoop and pile.
It did make for good snowballs though and the boys (all three of them…) had a great time!
Of course the sledge had to come out… And of course this was combined with a bit of snow throwing :)
The slide was also covered in snow, and that was far too much of a temptation, the 5yo winning the toss at being the one to slide down through the snow. Thank goodness for snow gear!
Shouts of I love snow! from the wee girl and squeals of delight from the boys as snowballs went flying, made for perfect family time. I may yet learn to love, rather than tolerate, the snow :)
