Snow much fun!

My favorite picture -- George peeking out from our fort. I love his freckles!

We have had a lot of snow this week and it has been so much fun to play in! We had been waiting for some "packy-snow" to create a snowman and build a snow fort. Sunday church was canceled due to the snow storm and the boys had a grand time having snowball fights with Daddy and rolling around in the snow. Monday after the winds had died down I was excited to get out there myself. The boys and I made a snow Mommy with a child on it's back (a Family Fun idea) and it turned out really cute!

We took a break for our traditional snow treat of snow cones with flavored soda and then got busy building a snow fort.

The fun continued that evening and even Missy Blue was bundled up but didn't enjoy herself near as much as the rest of us. Today it is snowing again and the boys are excited that Grandpa and Grandma are coming over to go sledding! Are they here yet?

With all of the fun and playing that I have done with my children this week I have found how much better the day and especially school goes. There are so many times where a child will ask me to play and I always have something else that I "need to do". I  was reminded this week that playing is learning. I love to play but need to take the time for it!

Can't resist the taste of fresh snow!
