Today I was totally surprised by a snow day! I'm usually pretty on top of the weather forecast, but I wasn't today! I saw on an early morning Facebook check a friend posting about snow, and sure enough, there was snow coming down outside my window too! I could hardly wait for the boys to get up and finish breakfast so I could bundle them up and play outside for a bit! We don't get consistent snow here in Texas, and now this is our second snowstorm in 3 weeks! The boys didn't get to enjoy our Christmas snow day since they were sick, so I was determined to not miss this one!
And they LOVED it!!
|Our backyard with a pretty covering of snow!|
|The pic we sent to Daddy who was out of town on a business trip. The boys wished he was here to play too--they were saying, "Snow Daddy!"|
|Will in brown bear hat, Jack in green frog hat|
|At first they weren't quite sure if they wanted to go out onto the snow|
|And a little closer...|
|And Will was the first to head out into the snow!|
|Betsy was loving it too, and ran around the whole time we were out there! (This is a dog that sleeps on a pillow 95% of the time!) It was like she was a puppy again!|
|And Jack had fun chasing her around the yard!|
|At first, neither were too fond of there being snow on their gloves--they kept asking met to "wash, wash, wash"!|
|Then they learned how to "clap" the snow off their hands|
|And they thought it was pretty fun!|
|While Jack was chasing Betsy, Will was working on wiping the snow off the top of our retaining wall =)|
|Will tried to suck his thumb, but it didn't quite work the same with the mittens!|
We came inside after about 15 minutes because we were all really cold! But the didn't want to come and kept asking to go back out to the snow! But I think they had fun...don't these cheese faces say it all?!
|Jack's silly face|
|Will's big smile|
And if that wasn't enough, I had quick meeting later in the morning, so I dropped the boys off at my parents house for a bit. And they went out for walk to the playground, made snow angels, and built a snowman with Gigi and Boppa! Fun!
|The "Snowman" =)|
|They were very proud!!|

|On a mission!|
What a fabulous day playing with my big boys in the snow!! They will sleep well tonight!! =)
And because I didn't get these pictures sent to Mammaw and Pappaw like I promised I would earlier today... Sorry Kathy! Here are pics of the boys' haircuts--they sure look so much more grown up whenever Gigi cuts their hair!
