Let it snow!

We had a snow-filled MLK holiday on Monday. We awoke to more than a foot of snow in the valley and in our yard. Unfortunately, I haven't done much playing in the snow with the kids this winter season and Griffin and Morgan hadn't played in the snow at all before yesterday. All the kids got on all their winter gear and ran outside to play. Griffin was left behind and watched from the window.
He finally escaped, unprepared for the winter conditions, bare feet and all. He was determined to try out this new concept so I found him some girl snow boots that were a little too big for him, mittens, coat and hat. He had the time of his life playing in the snow. I finally had to force him back into the house (kicking and screaming) for a bath when his hands and face were turning purple.

Everyone had a great time playing in the freshly fallen snow

I love that sweet little face looking out of the window. I see that little face watching me every time I drive out of your drive way. Good for Griffin that he was able to have such fun in the fluffy new snow! Great fun for everyone!

Looks like you got a great picture for January's page for the 2009 calendar! We had a snow day too last week - I need to send you a picture of our "snow" that closed all the schools! It was just a white dusting and everything closes down! The kids sure enjoyed it and it gave me a chance to get a picture of the kids with white grass in the background for mom's calendar
