Old Man Winter 2010

Two years ago, the NW was hit with a snowstorm that kept us inside for days. We had an almost two year old who only wanted to watch Cars. Needless to say, having an almost 4 year old, who wants to play in the snow is WAY better!

Yesterday, we spent the day, watching the snow fall through the evening hours. This morning the sun was shining, the temps were in the mid 20's, and we bundled up to build a snowman. Mommy is so glad she bought Alexander's snow pants on Ebay and snow shoes at Tar-jay last week!
First thing we had to do was determine how deep the snow was...we think 6-8 inches sound about right.

We had to do a snow dance.

Sing and dance.

Shovel snow off the front steps.

Pose with Mommy.

And work with Daddy, once Mommy decided she was too dang cold.

The snow is too dry for making snowmen or making snowballs. Nothing is melting with the cold temps so maybe tomorrow will be a better day.
I'm sure this won't be the last of a snow day with Mommy or the last of playing outside in snow this winter.
