Snow Day!

We don't get snow too often in our area.  In fact last year we didn't get any at all.  We have been teased by the weather reports a few time already this season.  Finally, yesterday afternoon around 4:30 we looked out our window to see beautiful huge snowflakes falling from the sky.  The kids quickly ran upstairs for their gear and we headed out to play.
They LOVED it.  They first thing they both did was make snow angels.  Then we walked up the street and ran into some friends outside playing.  They rolled up and down the hill and got as wet as possible.   We had to drag them in after about an hour because poor Olivia had had enough.  Smart girl stayed bundled in a blanket in her momma's arms and didn't get down to play much at all.

I think this is one of the prettiest pictures I have of my big girl.  (Thanks Mindy)

This is the "I'm emotional about becoming a big brother and cry about everything" face.  We would appreciate prayers for his little heart.

The next morning Brad took the kids out sledding while I fed Olivia breakfast.  Brooks came in after just a few minutes because he was melting down.  His sleep has been very poor since we got home and he needed to go back to bed.  I took the girls out (isn't it fun that I can say "the girls")?  Ky loved pulling Olivia in the sled and Olivia giggled and giggled.  She did not want her feet to touch the snow though.


 Less than 24 hours later and most of the snow is melted.  We sure did have fun while it lasted.
