About around the month of October we began anticipating the excitement of a snow day. We just knew we'd have days of snow-man building, hot cocoa drinking, and sledding. And then, nothing. Just a few days with a dash of snow here and there.
Until today. We got our snow day on the farm!
I got a chance to do a little wandering with my camera. It was such a treat to have my hands free to click and capture away while the girls were tucked in warm with Nana. Each snowflake is a miracle. The hush over the farm when it snows is magic.
Of COURSE we wouldn't only enjoy the snow for ourselves!
We bundled the girls and then bundled them some more.
Out we headed, snow-bound. Anna Ruth was practically floating on air she was so excited!
Sometimes Betsy Grace is slower to warm up to new things, especially big things like snow! But she loved it! She walked all around the yard and tried to make snowballs. I was so proud of her!
Anna Ruth, sticking out her tongue to catch a snowflake.
The girls LOVED the snow. They made snowballs and snow angels. Anna Ruth also liked trying to run in her Daddy's boot tracks and play "snow chase". Her idea entirely, of course.
Of course then we were spoiled silly by coming in to the most delicious and warm stew my mom-in-law made.
I also bought a magazine about porches today so that will tell you how many snow days I think are in our future. Not very many, if any at all. But I'm so thankful for this grand goodbye to winter.
we heart you.
Thank-you for sprinkling our last few days of winter with love and joy.
