Let it snow!

Before and during the holidays we had a few (super-awesome-fun) snow days.
Snow Day???
Some days had more snow than others :)
December 16th we woke up to a snow day.  Clark's school was canceled, and Jason had a day off of work.  So imagine my surprise when I opened the blinds to find not a speck of snow on the ground, no ice, no rain, nothing.  I never laughed so hard in my life.  I remember growing up in Utah and still having to got to school when we got a couple feet of snow,
 in fact I don't remember getting any snow days during high school.
The snow did come later that same day, but I don't think we got more than an inch, and the road were still pretty clear.  Clark and Harry decided to follow me out in the snow for pictures, can you believe they didn't have any shoes on! Clark loves the snow, as long as he is looking at it from inside the house, he still isn't too sure of playing in it.
Harry, on the other hand, hates everything about it...and really who can blame him.
The day after Christmas is snowed all day, it was amazing.  I forgot how much I loved to watch the snow fall.  I really think it is so beautiful, and as long as I don't have to drive in it, I am happy.  They canceled church for the day, and most places were closed the next day as well.  I think our grand total at the end of the day was somewhere between 10-12 inches. 
 I love how you can see the buried lights under the snow, and how the curb completely disappears.
See, it's so pretty. 
I love how bright the sky looks when it is snowing, it lights everything up.  I took this pictures close to 11:00 pm, 
it should've been pitch black outside, but the sky was so bright.
I wonder when the winter wonder-lust will wear off...
Everyone pretty much thinks I am crazy, but I am finding all this snow, magical.
After the snow stopped we tried to take the boys out to play.  Clark got off a few snowballs, but he wasn't into it nearly as much as I thought he would be.  Harry was fine as long as no snow touched him, but his poor little hands did get cold after awhile.  We need to get some mittens before the next storm :)

I love Harry's look here, like he is trying to be happy and enjoy it, but he is still kinda confused and cold.

Can you believe this is what we were doing this time last year???
Making sand-men, half naked, at the beach.
The boys grew so much this last year.
(And yes, that is snot dripping down Harry's face, ew.)
Making Snow Angels
Clark and I had a lot fun making a snow angels!
Our First Family Snowman
Here is our first family SNOWMAN!  Or more like a snow-ballerina.
We are definitely going to have to work on our snowman making skills.

Snow is poopy. And in Reese's words "Snow has a big poop."
