Snow day

It has been snowing and snowing!! I think that it might have finally stopped, but we already have a good 8-10 inches! Maddie woke me up this morning at 6:45 telling me that there was snow outside and that she wanted to go play in it. I told her that she was going to have to wait at least until I had consumed a couple cups of coffee. :o) We did end up going out around 10:00 when the temp warmed up to the mid 20's. I feel so bad for my kids because I was totally unprepared for this snow storm! We didn't have snow suits that fit and Maddie didn't have any boots....but I stuffed Charlotte into an 18 month suit and put rain boots on her, really stuffed Maddie into a 2T suit with double socks and her sneakers. Maddie's snow suit was about 5 inches too short, but she didn't seem to mind! We ended up playing for about 40 minutes and then our fun dissolved into freezing tears so we headed inside to snuggle in blankets and drink hot cocoa. Both girls had a lot of fun although this was Charlotte's first real experience with snow (last year she was only 8 mo. old) and she didn't really know what to make of it! She kept telling me, "I like snow Mama," but she also wanted to be held a lot.....maybe it was because she couldn't move in her snow suit!?! Henry and Tyson also got to play in the snow and it always amazes me how much they love it! They seriously act like they are puppies again, running around and wrestling in the snow. I don't think we'll be going back outside today because it's actually getting colder instead of warmer....22 degrees right now, but we'll have more snow fun tomorrow. And maybe I'll find a winning combination of clothing to keep both kids warm and dry! I think the winter landscape is so much more beautiful with snow covering everything!

The pics are lovely! Gosh, Charlotte and Maddie look like they're having so much fun. I've only played in the snow twice like in ever and it was so awesome. My kids will go crazy in the snow.
