Another snowy morning

The temperature around here has been in the teens. Far too cold for my liking. It snowed last week and since then it's just been this solid mass of ice. So this morning when it warmed up enough to snow, I was thrilled. And of course all morning chores were laid aside so that we could go out and play. Usually I drag my feet a bit on going outside in the snow. It generally takes me about 30 minutes to bundle everyone up for all of about five minutes-- when they insist on going back inside because they're too cold. But we've been so cooped up and the snow looked so appealing. And they seemed pretty earnest about going out. So... out we went. And they lasted an hour and a half! :)

Here's the snow mama and baby we made...

And this is what my youngest did for 90% of his time outdoors. I am not even exaggerating.

And no, he did not fall down.

He's just eating snow.

On another note, I won't be posting for the rest of the week because my dear friend Michelle and her youngest son Micah are coming (from Indiana!!!) to visit! WOO HOO!!! We can't wait. I met Michelle during our adoption process, and am so grateful that God saw fit to bring this sweet friend into my life! :)

    Looks like they loved it. Alethea didn't know what to think of it; she kept saying "messy, messy".
    Thanks so much for your prayers.

    Those kids are gorgeous!
    My daughter always spends her time eating snow too - and she is 5.
    Glad you had a fun time outside. We have not been outside much, it is freezing here.
    Have a great week.

    Yes! It's so much effort to get all the gloves, boots, socks, coats, mittens and hats on. Then, they want to come in. I can relate. An hour and a half?!? Remarkable!

    PS Sending some good Indiana vibes your way to you and Michelle! =)

    with Michelle. Micah is such a sweetie. My dh and I got to play with him when we were meeting our Harrison at Hannah's Hope. Tim was smitten and wanted to adopt Micah too!
