We woke up Wednesday morning to THIS blessing! I wasn't expecting it in March. Actually I wasn't expecting it at all. We didn't have hardly any snow last year, a couple of dustings, and this year, while we have had some snow, I didn't think that we'd get this much GOOD snow!!! It was absolutely beautiful. And as I type it is in the 40's outside and quickly disappearing.
I hadn't planned on taking Sweet Pea's 15 month pictures outside, but that's what I did! She loved it! Her snowsuit is quite a bit too big, but she didn't mind.
The cold didn't seem to bother her anyway-not that it really was that cold, it was in the 30's so nothing terrible.
Little Monkey Man doesn't remember seeing snow on the trees like this. We had two other decent snows this year (even got to go sledding!) but it didn't stay on the trees like frosting.
Snug had the day off of school and we enjoyed every minute of him being home with us. We found a snowball maker earlier this winter (it laid beside the road for 2 weeks in a house that no one lives in and we finally brought it home) and he and I had a great snowball fight.
Rosebud loved the snow too. To keep her from getting cold we put the "booties" on her snowsuit so she didn't have very much use of her hands. Her snowsuit is made for a much younger person.
If it wasn't March and if we weren't putting all of our winter things away, I'd be tempted to frame this one!
The snow stayed on the trees thick like this all day. It was simply beautiful.
We put Sweet Pea into our frame backpack so she wouldn't be down on the ground and so she could see what we were doing. Her snowsuit and boots made it impossible for her to walk around. The boys made her snow balls and said she was part of an ice cream sundae!
Here are two of the snowmen we made. They also made snowmen for our neighbor to enjoy in her yard. It was PERFECT snowman snow in the afternoon. Poor LMM is very sad that they are melting away today.
We also made a snow monkey in honor of Little Monkey Man :o)
Although I know he's made a snowman with us before, he doesn't remember it. He seriously was in LOVE with his snowman. He did lots of the work himself, I helped with the lifting.
And here's a picture to make you cold after all of those winter pics! Little Miss weighs 16 lbs 14 oz (a whopping 2 oz gain) and I didn't get her length...too squirmy. No new milestones this month, but she continues to repeat many words and she has quite the personality! She'll be very grateful for summer as she'd rather not wear any clothes thankyouverymuch!
Snug loves life. At eight years old, he is a big brother four times over, a role he takes very seriously. He loves to read, swim, run, play Legos, and hear stories. He is sensitive to the needs of others and has a very kind heart.
Little Monkey Man
Watch out world! This middle child is not about to be left out of anything! Formally known on this blog as "Baby J" he is a baby no longer. His sense of adventure is downright dangerous and he will push your buttons all day long. This six year old is very generous and has a sweet smile that will light up a room. Don't let him use his "eyes" on you or you may fall under his spell!
Four years old and quite the little lady. Not sure what we'll do with all of her emotions, but loving watching her grow. She loves ballet, preschool, and church and all of her friends-both real and stuffed variety.
She's three! Hard to believe how fast time goes by. She's my girl and she's demands lots of my love. Growing, changing, and making us all laugh (and scream...not gonna lie), this little one is so precious.
Oh this baby. Easiest one, cheeriest one. Laid back, happy, sweet.
