We had a beautiful snowfall Thursday night-Friday. Lots of the powdery white stuff, probably 6-8 inches in some places. So Saturday morning what do you do but play in the snow!
Rich was pulling out of the driveway when he called me to say "Grab the camera, the girls are out playing and look really cute!" So I put on my warm play clothes and we had such fun.
Three against one - Moira, Audrey, Isabel - all lined up to attack Grandma!
Audrey - licking the snow. It was so soft! Too soft to go sledding down "Dewey Hill", the little knoll between our houses, but we had a blast tromping around, throwing snow balls and simply laughing a lot!
A stationary Grandma makes a REALLY good target!
Isabel climbing what they called "the Rocky Mountains!". Actually it was the PILE of snow that a neighbor plowed off our driveway at 9 pm on Friday night - all a very big surprise. He said he was just "out playing"!
Maeve raking the snow. She had such fun and loved it all.
Our greatest fun was what the girls called "avalanche". I decided to shovel off the snow on our deck because it was drifted up a foot or so next to the house. The girls stood under the deck and as I'd push the snow off the sides, they'd run into it - without their hats. Their heads were covered in snow. No tears, lots of laughing, and a clean deck! We all agreed that it was a blast!
It's supposed to be in the 40s this week, so it will melt soon, but what a great way to spend time on a Saturday morning!
