Arkansas gets maybe one good snow a year.
If we are lucky. And when the snow does show up, you can hear the school children singing the Hallelujah chorus from miles around, because the arrival of snow shuts everything down around here. I can't say I mind.
I love a snow day or 2 myself. I did grow up in Alaska after all.
Yesterday was the first full snow day and the boys took advantage of it.
I would have been irritated at the number of times I had to help them get in and out of their wet clothes, hats, scarves and gloves (as we don't ski and therefore have no appropriate cold weather gear,) but each time they went out, they stayed a little longer and played a little harder.
They built tiny snowmen (this is Wylie's)
With chocolate chips for eyes and bits of Clementine peel for the nose
(this is Miles')
He was so proud of his snowman and even more excited to see that it was still standing this morning.
Oh we will mourn the day they melt...
This is Wylie doing his "Narnia" pose with our Lamp Post.
After that the snowball fight begin and continued intermittently all day.
See that gleem in his eye? Yep, I got pellted myself after taking this picture.
And now you have seen the truth.
My Christmas decorations are not down yet. Not outside, not inside.
Maybe they will come down today...Maybe this weekend.
But in the meantime, the porch sure does look pretty covered in a big white fluffy blanket of snow don't you think?
