As I stumble out of the door I look out and see the most beautiful snow storm. It was snowing....hard...as in like, sideways! David called up Matt to see if they were still going to brave the weather & decided not to. So, it became official...SNOW DAY! We hurried to eat some form of breakfast while we listened to the constant pleading, "Can we go outside, I want to go outside, Can we go play, Is it time to ski?????" You get my point...
|That boy has got some blue eyes|
|Ready to go!|
Finally, as we finished choking down a pop tart off we go to get bundled up. The boys were giddy. Well, maybe David & I were too. It's fun to play in the snow! We all got ready and headed outside to play. I'm not joking when I say it was snowing sideways. The snow was coming down so hard it was hurting our faces. But, we prevailed and continued to throw snowballs at one another and attempt to build a snowman. The snow was pretty dry so the snowman wasn't that great, but much to the boys excitement he was upright with a bottom, middle & head. He was even complete with sticks for arms & rocks for eyes and nose. I know...I know...I wasn't prepared for the snowstorm, so I didn't have any carrots or coal. I promise I won't be caught off guard next time! As we finished the snowman and we realized how red our cheeks were we headed inside for the best part of a snow day....HOT CHOCOLATE! Thank goodness I was prepared with that!
|Heading out for the first time this year|
|Snow ball fight!|
|Those are happy boys|

|Coming together nicely|

The good thing about Colorado snow...it doesn't stay around. Come 2:00 (while we were watching the LSU game) the snow was pretty much gone. The only thing left in our yard was our poor, pitiful snowman. By 6:00 he was gone too. Now we are back to 70's and on this Saturday it's supposed to be almost 80. Love Colorado!! Can I get an AMEN?!?!
