Snow Day

The kids had a blast playing outside in the snow today. . .We haven't had very many snows in my children's lifetime, so they thouroughly enjoyed playing outside. It was actually pretty warm, so I let them play outside about 3 hours. We didn't get outside til around 11, because I worked last night and was trying to get a little sleep. Needless to say, with all of the excitement in the house, I didn't get much of it. . . I took a TON of pictures, but thought I wouldn't bore you with too many of them. . So here are a few of my favorites. . . Everyone wanted to sleigh ride first and foremost. . . We have this little yellow and purple sled that actually flies. . . .Here is Cade, laughing all the way down the hill. . . .Here is Ian, trying to attempt some "cool" sledding feat. . .. And last but not least, Macey. . .She screams all the way down the hill, each and every time that she goes down. . .It was so funny. . .Love this pic. . .
Then they were off to build a snowman. . .They wanted to do it completely by themselves. . .which was fine with me. . just gave me more photo opportunities. . . .
They decided to name their snowman, Cade. ..because he was just about as tall as Cade. . .and I think he actually favors him a little bit ;)
Here is a picture of "Cade" the snowman. . . I love the details of his spiky hair. . . We didn't have a cool snowman kit like the Mumpowers. . . (which I loved by the way), but I think they were pretty creative. . . . They are showing me the "World's only PERFECT snowball". . .everyone was amazed at how perfectly round it was. . . . Macey wanted to take a picture of me. . .so here I am. . .tobaggan and scarf. . .I don't usually wear toboggans, due to my extremely large head. . .but here I am . . .I am wearing one of the tobaggans that my friend Emily's aunt made. I had posted about these hats earlier. . .We all have one of them. . .
Can you feel the love???? It's amazing how everyone gets along so well when we are playing outside in the snow . . . They had a blast. .and they played together so well. . . It was good while it lasted because as I am posting this blog. . there is lots of whining, yelling, and arguing going on in the living room. . . I am just ignoring all of the commotion for now. . .Hopefully they will work it out themselves. . . .
I changed the settings around on my camera a little. . .and got this shot. . I LOVE it. . .I think Macey looks like a Snow Angel. . . .Beautiful little girl. . . love you Mace. . .
I love this shot. . I am gonna post it on my Still Moments site. . .This is Ian showing me "The World's Only Perfect Snowball" I changed the aperture on this shot. . .and love how it turned out. . . Definately going to print this one. . .
Here is a close up shot of "booger" boy. . .Hee hee. . The entire time he was outside, he was wiping his nose. . .Poor little Cade has pretty severe asthma, so cold temperatures tend to cause flare ups. . .He actually did pretty well overall. He had a few little coughing spells, but nothing to write home about. . . Heather? Do you recognize the hat??? I thought it was too cute. . . After a long day of playing out in the snow, everyone came in and got baths. . .they put on warm pajamas, and drunk big cups of hot chocolate. . . Cade had to have some of his hot chocolate before he put his pj's on. . .: ) This has been a great "Snow Day". . . Just getting us ready for our fun expedition next week as we go Tubing in North Carolina. . .We can't wait!!!! Hope everyone had a great day. . . .

Just a little fan mail. Love the picture of Macey where you "changed the settings around.... a little." She definitely looks ethereal.
