Snow Day

We got several inches of snow a week or two ago, but it's been too cold out to actually enjoy it.  Yesterday, with the temperatures close to 40 degrees with no wind, the girls and I decided it would be the perfect time to enjoy some snowy fun before these warm temperatures melt it all away.  (Wishful thinking.)  Although the snow didn't pack well enough for snowman building, the girls enjoyed making footprints in the snow, throwing 'snowballs' (handfuls of snow), and sledding in the backyard.  This was Adelie's first time playing in the snow.  She liked the sledding and the playing, but was less than enthused about getting 'stuck' in the deep snow, falling into the snow repeatedly, and getting snow in her mittens.

Sledding was the highlight for the girls.  Not so much for Mommy who had to hike up and down the backyard hill, lugging a sled and helping a toddler who kept falling over and crying.
