Snow fun

A couple days before Christmas we got dumped on... seriously... so much snow. Of course the kids were loving it and thrilled to be having a white Christmas. Me... not so much. But, I tried to be a good sport and we all bundled up and went out to play (while Chris did the back breaking work of shoveling at least a foot and a half off our very large driveway).

Max ran out and jumped right in the snow... 
literally dove in to it!
We have a pretty steep driveway the kids like to sled down.

Abby seriously loves to play in the snow... 
she is always the first one ready and out the door!
Making snow angels.
Poor Chris... he's my hero fro doing all the hard work... I hate shoveling snow. (so does he... he actually spent the entire morning trying to buy a snow blower but there were none to be found so he finally gave in and started shoveling!)
I'm pretty sure this was Afton's first time playing in the snow and she LOVED it! She was adorable... she ran around, fell in it, ate it, loved sledding with the big kids... 
She was so sad when we made her come inside... 
but she was freezing cold and I was worried about her little fingers. 
Even Roxy joined in and loved running through the snow!
It was the perfect way to begin our winter break and we had so much fun being outside and enjoying the snow together... except Chris... I don't think he enjoyed it as much =)

We also got to enjoy the snow...we were visiting Utah for Christmas and the kids loved playing in the snow for the first time. So glad to have your blog. I have one but it's by invite. I need your email address.
