Snow day on the farm

 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. 

Dear snow,
we heart you. 
Thank-you for sprinkling our last few days of winter with love and joy.

  1. Beautiful pictures! The ones with the cows and kids are so sweet! Personally, I'm getting a little sick of the snow, praying there will be no snow days and the kids will go back to school! ;)

    1. Thank-you Angela! I bet it is a whole different ball game when kiddos are home from school for days! I don't know any different with having toddlers and none in school yet. So right now I'm just thankful for something new for us to learn about at home-snow! :)

    1. Hi Simone and hello all the way from Arkansas! :) Isn't that crazy that you live in Australia, and I'm here and we can still connect? I love it. What fun! :) How many cows do you all have? We love cows!

      Is your heat humid or just hot? Well, not "just hot"…but I'm sure you know what I mean. We have such a humid heat here it can feel really miserable sometimes. But I still love the outdoors!

  3. WOW!! How gorgeous your farm is in winter, totally loved this and could feel the beauty in your pictures. Thank you so much for taking them and sharing them here for us, so fun to see the weather around the world. Your girls are adorable too!
    We've had too much snow and ready to say good-bye to it and hello to green grass again. It's been over a month since I've seen grass and our poor dog too.
    Happy you got to go out and enjoy it too!!

    1. Thank-you so much for your kind words Dawn! We are truly some of the lucky ones in the U.S. because we've hardly had any snow and just got to enjoy it as a treat because we know it must be on its way out for good….

      I hope the same for you! Green grass is coming soon! :)
