Honestly, I was ready for spring! Really I was...even though I've been telling you all I wanted snow! I had convinced myself that we weren't going to get anymore...just the one "little snow" we had back in January, so I had the mindset for spring to arrive! However, we got a little surprise....a late snow (for us) this past Saturday. The morning started off warmer with rain, followed by the temperature drastically dropping throughout the day. I believe it dropped about 30 degrees in a short time, so the rain turned to sleet which turned to big snowflakes. We enjoyed watching the snow at the kitchen table in the breakfast nook while we worked on Joy's geography project for our homeschool Geography Fair. When there was enough on the ground, we had to stop and go out and play.
You can never play in the snow with Joy without a snowball fight and she made a HUGE one!
This was a good sticky snow and we had about 3 inches on the ground by the time it was done because it continued all night off and on...and we went back out on Sunday (church was cancelled) and played again...this time building a miniature snowman....named Perry (by Joy). Okay you northerners....don't laugh...
My mom and dad were watching out the window and thought he needed more. We just gave him whatever we could find nearby...rock eyes and nose and a twig smile. Thanks to my mom and dad, he got this red cap!
Isn't Perry the cutest thing?
We also went 4-wheeler riding in the fields behind the house....Jason, Joy and me. We saw deer tracks back there. It was SO cold, but lots of fun! I don't have pictures from that ride because we were making a silly video instead.
This is a picture of the bushes at my mom and dad's house next door. It was such a pretty snow.
We even had some drift piles like these which were fun for Joy to jump and play in too!
And of course, doesn't every kid have to make a snow angel?
And then her jeans were soppy wet because remember there was rain under that snow! But it was fun while she was doing it anyway!
After this we were getting pretty cold, with numb fingers and toes, so we returned indoors and enjoyed being cozy viewing the snow from our toasty home....and watched the very last DVD of the Anne of Green Gables Series.
NOW it can officially be spring! :)
