On Saturday morning (early) we awoke to this!! Yep, snow!! It is the kind of snow that is extremely heavy and wet. The flakes were huge and it was really coming down. Very pretty. Evan was so excited and he thought Santa was coming. Too cute.
Here is another shot looking from the house to the lake.
Sorry to bore you with tree pictures but it was so pretty hanging from the trees.
Another landscape picture.
After lunch ( and before naps) we decided to bundle the kids up and head outside. They loved it for a while. Emma kept eating the snow. It brought back memories of me doing that when I was a kid. Then she proceeded to take her hat and mittens off, so in we went.
Evan thought it was fun but he didn't like the snow hitting his face. Just imagine those big flakes hitting your face. He kept saying my eyes hurt. The snow was melting in his eyes. Do you notice the hat Laura? The funny thing is, he has both hats you crocheted on. He thinks it's fun to wear them at the same time.
This is our pathetic attempt at a snow man. Jim went a little crazy dressing it up, but Evan really enjoyed it. ( Remember I had to bring Emma in by this point.) The snowman is quickly melting away. A lot of the snow is melting although the ground is still white. Hopefully we will get some warmer weather to melt more of it. We have an outside project that needs to get done.
Well all this snow put me in the mood for Christmas. So on Sunday I put my very small tree up in my family room. It houses all the ornaments I have received or collected over the years ( and ones we have purchased). I still need to add a little more to the top but I am liking the way it turned out. I still have to add the tree skirt but I have not gotten any of my bins out yet.
Happy decorating!! Once Emma's party is done I will be in full Christmas mode. Can't wait for both!!
