This time there was actual snow... not much... just enough to close the schools again.
You can see that it ranged from 0-1.5"... so a dusting really. It is however legitimately COLD today. It's noon and the thermometer just hit 12 degrees.
So a full bundling up was necessary to take advantage of the first *real* snowfall we've had here.
Man, I do not miss the 1 hour of tugging and pulling on of 3 layers of snow clothes! Poor Baby was ready first and had to wait broiling in her snowsuit.
The kids were really into making snow angels.
I don't even know how Baby knew what they were but as soon as she got out there she got down and made one.
She even had her little friend make one.
Here's Kid adding hair and eyes to hers.
Hell, even I couldn't resist making one... despite the inherent risks involved in getting down and up in the snow.
It was fun for the 20 minutes we lasted before our nose drips turned into icicles on our faces.
We have a pretty big city yard with a slight slope. I looked everywhere for our sledding sleds to no avail... but Baby did get a couple go 'rounds in our cool old fashioned pulling sled. Kid and I took turns trudging her about.
God, I love that Kid... she really is one hell of a big sister.
It's kind of nice when it is SO cold... you get not complaints when you suggests it's time to head back in and warm up.
I told them we'd come back out later on...
but... I might have been lying.
