I didn't really tell the kids snow was coming...just in case it didn't... but it came and they were very excited and curious when they woke up. I just love this picture of them "discussing" the snow. They're so funny together.
When you wake up to snow in the south and everything is cancelled...what else can you do but eat snow cream for breakfast? and lunch. and dinner..... haha.
Davis' snow cream reactions
1. it's cold! 2. mom maybe you should eat it.
3. okay, maybe i'll try it. 4. mmm...maybe this snow stuff is alright...
fast forward the 2 hrs it took to get dressed and out the door....exaggerating...slightly :/
D wasn't too sure about this cold white stuff...but he tried to play for a few minutes until his hands got cold and wet, then he was a
hot cold mess.
our backyard has the perfect hill for sledding toddlers--long and not to steep. the twins were hesitant at first, but learned to love it the more they did it.
The Sweatland Team came to play with us and Uncle Jake was a great play mate :)
oh i love this silly girl
i got to take D for his first ride. he actually really enjoyed sledding.

Nora wanted a snowman so bad. It was NOT snowman building snow, but we had to do something...
too bad the kids were crying because they were cold and then crying again because the snowman...
can't win for losing sometimes. so uncle jake and i threw this little snowman together and then we called it a day!
get a good look at those miserable faces. i'm certainly gonna rub this in when they are older....oh emotional 4 year olds.
this little one cried his self to sleep on my chest because he was so upset about being outside. I'm not gonna lie though, the snuggle was sweet.
After naptime, i took the twins out one more time because i was determined to have some better snow memories that didn't involve so many tears. The second snow-go was a much better experience.
