Snow Day!!

Well we have finally been blessed with some SNOW around here! Everyone might not agree with me, but I don't care, I LOVE snow! And we haven't hardly had any this year, so it was high time we got some weather this year! I am glad we haven't lost power though, that would be miserable! Maddie Kate and Johnny have gotten the past 2 days off from school, and they are out tomorrow, too! There has been a lot of playing out in the snow around here, and I bundled Cohen up (like the boy's mom does in "A Christmas Story") so that he could hardly move! I took a few pictures, but I didn't really get shots of everything we did. It was so cold I hated to have my camera out too long, so I missed the kids getting pulled around behind the 4-wheeler, and the finished product of Maddie Kate's snowman's circle. I'll have to get some shots of those tomorrow.
Here's Ava all bundled up ready to go out!

Here's Cohen on his first snow playing day...I know I'm his mommy...but those baby blues are to die for! :)

Maddie with her snowman! The snow was pretty soft, so we had to pack it in buckets to get it to stick together good enough to build with, but it turned out cute!

Yup, he made this super serious face the whole time we were outside! This is the same face he made at Halloween when he had to wear his very constricting caterpillar costume! I think he just resigns himself to not being able to move when he is wearing a ton of clothes, ( "Could I BE wearin' any more clothes?!") and this is the face we get...

MOM! Take me inside! What is this stuff anyway!?

Well, the fundraiser I'm doing for DuQuoin's Youth and Government is canceled for tomorrow, because school is canceled. The coordinator is still planning for us doing pictures Friday and Saturday, so if you want to get in on this sweet deal for photos, please call Sarah (number on the flyer I posted a few post ago!)

  2. Aawww, looks like your kids had a lot of fun in the snow. (Well, Cohen just looks concerned! But I'd look at those concerned baby blues any day!) Maddie Kate's snowman is so cute! We've had about a foot of snow on the ground for weeks now, but it's so cold and it doesn't stick, so no snowmen for us. :(

  3. Such adorable pictures of Maddie Kate, Ava, and Cohen!!! Very cute snowman - so creative. Cohen and those big blue eyes...makes me want to hold him and give him lots of hugs and kisses. Glad everyone is enjoying the snow!

  4. And again I will tell you that you have the cutest children ever.. haha : ] Looks like you guys had lots of fun! We have had zero snow here, so its sad but I really enjoyed these pictures! Cohen's eyes make my heart melt! So Beautiful!
