Snow Much Fun

Michigan has been hit with snow lately, not a ton but it's been cold enough that it's stayed around on the ground. ER couldn't be happier about it. If given the chance, like most kids, she'll try to run out and dive in the snow the second the garage door opens. After the first few times, we've learned to put the child in the car BEFORE opening the door if we want to avoid a fight to get into the car. She has quite a talent for sticking a leg or hand in random piles of snow or slush, no matter how small, when walking to and from stores and other places. It's like there is some kind of magnetic attraction.
She finally got to build a snowman with Daddy, but he needs to stick with building lasers. Let's just say his design wasn't very good. Our poor guy fell apart almost immediately. I hate to say it Brad but the kids next door totally beat you on that one☺
While she's been begging to build a snowman, I think this is definitely her favorite snowy activity! I am so glad we thought to grab a little sled when they appeared in the stores back at the end of fall. Cause judging by what we've been seeing getting stocked they all think it's almost summer.
She also loves making snow angels, I think because it gives her a reason to get covered in snow from head to toe. It's always hard to get her to come back in to warm up.

She's adorable! We have too much snow right now - the kids go out in it, sink to their knees/hips, and cry for help.

Her little cheeks are so red! She's having so much fun and probably doesn't even realize how cold it is! I would like just 5" one time this winter. Just 5".....

Your daughter is adorable. I miss my kids being that little, but I don't miss the running off when trying to round them up and get them in the car. My girls used to hide from me when it was time to go bye-bye. Grrrrr.

Hey! This was the day I was in bed most of the day!! I laugh now, but then I was not so happy:p

I was hoping for a snow day for the following morning but it wasn't enough.

Hey Brad! Don't feel bad. For some reason I can't build snowmen either. Guess I don't have the knack.

ER looks like she is having so much fun! The last picture tells it all! What a cutie!
