The Big Snow

When it looks like this outside...

what else is there to do, but go out and play in it? Err... stand in it.

But, first, you must endure the worst part of playing in the snow... getting ready.
It can at least be made entertaining, when your crazy kid decides to raid your winter box, and try on every single thing in it.

Your kid will most likely have a moment of panic, and freak out, when he steps into the snow... and sinks. But, he will come around quickly and see that if he just stays in one place everything will be fine.

His daddy, who is coincidentally enough, also crazy, will decide that doing a snow angel in almost 2 feet of snow is a fabulous idea.

His lovely, and not at all crazy wife, will of course, laugh and snap pictures. She will then pose for a few pictures, doing her best to look pretty, ignoring the fact that her snow pants had to be held shut at the waist with a safety pin.

(My poor Dad's birthday is today. They lost power at their house last night at 9pm. They were stranded at their place all day, cold, grumpy from getting no sleep, and hungry. They are on there way here (at 8:30pm) to camp out on our couches. But, we love you, Dad!! Happy Birthday! At least, it is one you'll remember. : ) )

At least you are getting some fun from it all! We've got snow, no nothing. Poor little Jonathan would probably like to have some and do what Dylan is doing! Love the photos and you do look pretty!

What fun! I am jealous of all the snow - we are only expected to get a few inches. And I LOVE the picture of the 3 of you - definitely frame worthy.

I hope your parents have a warm, enjoyable evening with you and Happy Birthday to your Dad!

Those three in a row of him in the snow are SO great! Especially the middle one where he's tossing the snow!!
