A Winter Spring

Carrie Chapman2 Comments

Everyone's "prayers for moisture" are screwing up the seasons. We had Spring in January and now we are having winter in March. I'm glad we had at least ONE good snow storm, and it really is pretty. I'm just trying not to let my mind get too hopeless. If I still see snow on Mother's Day SO HELP ME. 

The girls were excited to get outside. It only took me about 76 hours to get them dressed. And once we got out there, Ruthie was like "NOPE NOPE NOPE"

Instead of playing outside, we left the door open for her so she could venture in and out but she mostly ventured in and kept her distance when she was out. 

Georgia was all about that snow life

For some reason, Georgia went inside, found this too-small-for-her leopard hat and proudly proclaimed that she had TWO hats.

Everyone was thrilled for the snowfall, and a bunch of neighbors had come outside to enjoy it. I've never seen someone as happy to shovel a driveway as Emily.

Georgia and I decided to build a snowman. Well, mostly I built it. Georgia doesn't have the attention span for that sort of thing. 

She did place the nose and the buttons. She also stuck the arms in. My sister-in-law made us this adorable snowman kit for Christmas but we didn't have any snow to use it! I kept it in my closet because I knew as soon as I put it in storage we would have a snow storm.

After the snowman was built, Ruth decided she could summon the courage to check it out. Georgia licked it and named him Mr. Grape. 

What's snow and snowman building without a little hot chocolate in a snowman mug? 

Welcome, Winter. Please only stay for like 2 days kthanksbye.
