Snow Day!

We woke this morning to snow flurries! The kids were very excited and couldn't wait to get out and play in it. It was sticking to the ground a little but not much, but I couldn't tell them no! By the time we got everyone bundled up it had started to rain and Corey didn't want to go outside anymore. The other three headed straight for the back yard to play in what little snow there was, while racing against the rain that was melting it. They still managed to have a snowball fight(video below), and Caitlyn managed to make a snowman (picture above). The snowman was a tad bit sad looking, but she was excited none the less. It is only about eight inches tall, and it is now sitting in our freezer, because she couldn't bear to see it melt! :) Even though the snow didn't last long, I feel confident there is more to come. This is the third time we've had significant flurries and the best of winter is right around the corner. Caitlyn talked me into taking a snow day off from school. I can't say that I was fighting her too hard! :) The kids are now all warming up with hot chocolate and watching cartoons. Enjoy the picture and the video. Love you all, and thank you to God Almighty who has for now blessed us with one more!
