Here they are! The lovely pictures of our sweet girls playing in the snow.
Sophia ran around like a crazy person doing everything you could imagine and more to play in the snow. Hope loved it and was quite a sport as well. They actually made lists that morning of all the things they wanted to do in the snow. = ) Gracie enjoyed it for about ten minutes; and Mckayla enjoyed it for about ten seconds. And those were the ten seconds it took for me to carry her down the stairs and set her down in the snow.
All in all, these are fantastic memories for us. When we came inside we gave the girls “coffee” which consisted of about one-tenth coffee, two-tenths sugar, and seven-tenths milk. They huddled around and drank it feeling very important. Paul’s great-grandmother used to make him coffee like that when he was little so it was a little sentimental for us as well.
A few days after that initial play, we went out again. Some very sweet neighbor boys gave the girls rides in their tub and snowboard down the hill. How fun! And we built the smallest snowman known to mankind.
Love to all,
One thought on “For family and friends: Snow!”
Love it! 24 degrees isn’t really that cold. 🙂 But it would seem very cold to me now after years in Africa!
