On Friday, we got SEVEN inches of snow.  Jonah even went out with a ruler and measured.

After breakfast, we bundled up and went for a walk in the snow, right down the middle of the street and through the park.
Nora was excited to catch “TEN snowflakes” on her tongue, and was a fan of licking handfuls off her gloves.
She was even tough enough to try a snow angel while it was still snowing heavily down onto her face.
Jonah enjoyed the scene, too, as we headed off to the hill where we could hear faraway sledders already having fun.
We watched people go down for a little bit and then a family who wasn’t using their plastic saucers kindly let us borrow theirs for some trips down the hill.
Nora was eager to give it a try right away.  We had a few fast rides, and ended up backwards a few times.  After watching us go down, Jonah decided to take two trips with me, too.  (He also took this picture.)
Unfortunately, it was a very dry snow and wasn’t good for building things or packing snowballs, but Jonah did his best to pitch a few anyway.  :)

Sean was sent home from work early, so he went out with the kids for some afternoon playtime – showed them how to make snow angels.

And headed off to explore the snowy meadow.

Then…  No school on Monday.  Or Tuesday.  And already called off for Wednesday…  Not sure if they’ll make it back this week.  But by Tuesday, it seemed like it might be a good idea to at least get the car cleared off.
The snow has been fun overall, but the painfully cold temperatures have not.  We’ll all be glad when things get back to the usual gray and rainy winter.

    What fun…. AND what memories!!! So glad the kids had enough snow to really enjoy, since it’s not a regular occurrence in your neck of the woods. Remember when cleaning off the car was fun??? (haha)
