The kids have been waiting very impatiently for it to finally snow, and last night it did! It's the first time we've been in snow in two years.
See how much there is? A whole 2 inches! There was so much snow that they called us this morning to say they'd canceled church!
These sort of blizzard white-out conditions certainly warrant the cancellation of church. We wouldn't want to be out wandering and get lost.
Anton claims it's because they have no snow removal equipment here and the roads are all ice. But, oh well. Either way, I didn't have to go to church, and that's fine with me.
And I knew that since the kids have been waiting so long to play in the snow, it would happen to be on a Sunday so they couldn't go play in it. However, we had a package to pick up in the office, so we bundled the kids up for a long, short walk over there.
The first thing both the kids figured out was throwing snowballs.
And yes, Ella is in a dress in the snow. She refused to put pants on.
Alex is chasing me with a snowball in his hand. He thinks it's super fun to throw them at mommy and daddy. While Alex was having all sorts of fun,
Ella was busy freezing.
We grabbed our package (it was the Playfoam finally, Harmony!!!) and went back to our apartment. Ella and I made hot chocolate for everyone while daddy helped Alex build his first snowman. It was little and cute and I didn't get a picture.
So hooray for snow and canceled church and kids who love to play in the snow!!
