Our First "Snow"...

Thursday, December 20, 2012
As I type this we are under a blizzard warning so these pictures make me laugh because we got a "dusting" of snow but enough to have fun in.  Poor Solon has never really played in snow because the only snow storm we got last winter was the day we left for Australia #whataretheodds.  So he has been SO pumped for snow this year.  I was not prepared and had to dig out of all the snow equipment and his boots are a little on the snug side but he is finally old enough to carry the weight on his feet ;).  Vera was napping that morning after church, otherwise she would have been sqwuaking to get out there too...
 
Ready to hit up the snow...

First up a snow man - we have been reading lots of books about snowmen so Solon knew just what he wanted to use for each part (unfortunately we didn't have any coal so he opted for rocks :)  He got sticks from the side yard for arms, a carrot nose and a stick mouth...
Ta do - a nice snowman (perfect snow packing kind of snow)
Next up snow angels...
...and a trip down the snowy slide - woah that was fast...see how far he was going in the grass from momentum...
 
Solon can't wait to help shovel (I am wondering if the enthusiasm will carry into his teenage years) and of course go sledding - although we live in Iowa so we will have to look long and hard for a sloped hill...:)
 
Snow is more fun through the eyes of a child!
