Snow Day! (#2)

Today has been a storybook version of a perfect February day! First, we had a Valentine's Day party with our homeschool group. It started snowing about an hour before we left for the party and the car already had a layer of snow. I have never really driven in snow. It made me a little nervous. We had a fantastic time indulging on sweet treats made by all the moms and the kids played on bounce house stuff (we had the party at an inflatables place). All the kids brought Valentines for each other, and it was a lot of fun visiting with the other moms. By the time we got home we had a really thick covering of snow over the entire yard! I am SO HAPPY that Corey got to come home and play in the snow with us!!!! (He missed it last time because he was gone on his 2 week road trip)

We had even more snow this time! Enough to totally cover the yard and enough to sled! If only we had a steep enough hill!!! It didn't work great, but it was fun to try!

Corey even made a snow angel!

Corey and Noah finally got to have a snowball fight!!!

Bonus of having a husband who is super tall and has long arms: great self portrait! ha!

Katie was able to go a little longer distance since she's heavier than Noah.

Valentine's party, and Snow!!!
Now a blazing fire.....a nice cozy February day!
I measured right before we came in and we had 1 3/4". But, it has been showing heavily ever since, so I think we are probably up to 2" by now!

Very good pics! I really enjoyed them and it looks like you all had a blast! It doesn't happen often enough around here!

Oh my goodness - those are some absolutely fabulous pictures. I love the "self portrait" shot, and Corey and Noah walking away, and Katie's face looking up at your from the "sled".
Not only is the snow beautiful, but the people playing in it too.
Thanks for sharing, especially since all we got was about 30 minutes of flurries, which melted on contact.
