Snow Day #2

The next day, after a slight melt, Jared informed me the snow was perfect for snowman building. So, once again, we bundled up and headed outside for another fun afternoon in the snow. (Two days in a row of snow play! This might seem like small beans for some but this is monumental for me. Really it is. It was also somewhat therapeutic. You know, sort of coming to terms with it all.) Here is our finished product:

I think this is the only time I have ever
been able to get Mitchell to voluntarily smile
for a picture. He was really excited:

Although I did have fun playing in the snow,
I couldn't help but express my true feelings
about the situation:

All of this snow actually melted a couple of days after our fun. But don't you worry, the ground is covered with about 3 inches again, schools are canceled today and the snow continues to fall. I've attempted to make peace with winter. Now I'm really ready for spring.

(22 days!)

Go you. We still haven't made a snowman. :( Ellie has asked a few times but she always seems to ask at nap time...and I always seem to forget. I'd rather be sun bathing too. I like your take. Cute pix of the boys.
