It snowed all day yesterday, until the night, when it started to ice, and then it snowed all morning today. Yesterday morning I took kiddos out to play in the snow. Here they are all ready to go out!(this picture is a side note....yesterday and today I shoveled our driveway and sidewalk...I am calling it my work out for those days...Anyhow, today I got all the snow off, but you can see from this one place that I kicked at for a bit that I left a huge sheet of ice over an inch thick on the whole driveway.)
Here is Claire yesterday enjoying her time outside...I love how her hair looks in the sun!
Jacob had a good time in the snow too.
The snow wasn't very sticky, so the snowman that we set out to build became a snow toddler...Jacob and Claire were very good helpers and continually reminded me that we needed a carrot for his nose. I had to keep telling Jacob that we could not give him a nose until we gave him a head. Anyhow, I only had baby carrots, so it was a good thing that he was so small. His eyes are blueberries...and as you can see he has an A's ice cream sundae hat atop his head.
We also made snow angels, if you look really close you can see from left to right: Claire angel, Jacob angel, Mommy angel.
This is what the snow toddler looks like today...he got a nice ice coating and a little extra snow.
Maybe we will get out this afternoon, but I am afraid that the layer of ice that you step on first, then sink into later might be too frustrating for Jacob and Claire to walk around in.
