Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow!

Ok,so I know it has been a long time since I last posted and now I am having a hard time. I uploaded all my pictures and while they are posting fine on my blog, I can't see them to write about them. So, I will give a quick overview and you can enjoy the pics.
Last Thursday Taylor and I woke up early for Seminary and when he left it was really cold and by the time he got back, we had snow everywhere. It snowed all day on Thursday. Grace loved the snow and she mostly loved eating it. It was so cute when she first stepped on the snow. She quickly looked at me and said that the snow was LOUD. The kids got home from school on Thursday and played in the snow all afternoon thinking it would be gone by Friday, like normal. To our surprise, we woke up on Friday morning to about 12 inches of snow outside. School was cancelled and the party and laundry began. The Dallas area has not received this much snow since the 1970s. What an awesome gift for us!!! The kids were already playing with neighbors by 8:00am. My front yard was perfect for sledding. We started out with cardboard then swimming tubes and then got smart and pulled out boogie boards. Unfortunately my front yard was not very pretty to look at by the time they were done but they had a blast. Dave talked all the kids into making an igloo and they all worked really hard on it. I think it turned out pretty good and we had lots of neighbors stopping by to look at it and take pictures, so funny.
Anyway, on Saturday the kids finally built a snowman. I had been asking them to build one since Thursday. Here it is Monday and the snowman and the igloo are still standing amongst all of the brown grass. Most of the snow has melted and life is getting back to normal but it sure was fun while it lasted.

I forgot you guys have a great sledding hill in the front! Looks like fun. And why does it not surprise me that Abby is out there in capris and short sleeves! :)

Love the igloo. Wish we felt like getting out and playing in the snow. It is just to darn cold.
