That's the third time this year....that's really something! If we get one snow a year, maybe two, it's a big deal.....but this is three! This one took us totally by surprise! (You can tell global warming is in full swing here.....)! ;)

We woke up this morning to a Winter Wonderland out our window (to us anyway). We already have about 4-5", and there's supposed to be another front moving through this evening, so maybe more! Bambi was admiring it from her perch....I wonder what she was thinking? :)

Joy didn't have a clue. Jason woke her up this morning and told her to come on in the kitchen and get breakfast "so we could get started on our schoolwork". She dragged out of bed and was very tickled to see the snowy white blanket over our backyard and the trees! Her normally mean ole homeschool teacher even let her off for the day, so we could go play. Although now that I think about it, there's still plenty of time....maybe some Math is in order yet....

And play we did. Actually, Jason and Joy played more than I did. I was official photographer.

There were snowball fights.

More snowball fights.

Daddy and daughter....

And it was a really good wet sticky snow....good for rolling into balls, and perfect for constructing a little snowman friend.

So she and Jason created our snow Boo Boo.

Doesn't he look like a jolly fella?

Joy,'re losing your pants.....(pants on the ground)! (She was wearing some of my old sweats) :)

That's my feet....had to show you the 4-5"! I love the crunchy sound of the snow under my boots!

It's hard to wear this girl down....tire her make her want to go inside and get warm! Oh to have that energy again! Glad I'll have her around to help with Luke! :)

And of course, I had to capture some snow scenery photos for our picture album.

My mama and daddy's place next door...they have all the trees!

Oh, and the not-so-fun part about playing in the snow.....the mound of laundry!

It's snowing lots more as I type this so we'll see what happens after this front moves through. I can honestly say we've had our snow(s), and spring would be really nice! I can see why all of you folks in the north talk so much about spring and are so eager to send me some of your snow :)

Thank you for stopping by! :)

Wow, sounds like daddy and daughter had a great day in the snow. We had 23 inches at our place. No one really got to play much because there was too much plowing that needed to get done. Took my hubby over 8 hours to find our drive.
Enjoy the next front.

Great Snow Pics of your family having such fun! Your house looks so warm and cozy nestled in the snow! We also just had our 3rd snow, leaving us a whopping 18 inches, on top of what we already had ~ more on it's way late tomorrow night! We have not had snow like this in years!

Here in NE Ohio we had 18 inches in our yard. And 2 foot in our driveway. Another snow storm comming
tomorrow. Yuck. It is such an
inconvience and a pain.

They look like they had so much fun, and you got some fantastic photos! I LOVE your first shot. You should frame it! Here in upstate NY we have barely gotten any snow this year - so weird!
