Isn't the snow lovely? Isn't it great when the kids and the dog can all run around outside in this Winter wonderland?
There's hot chocolate to be had and a warm fire to cuddle near...love it. Except when I'm completely over Winter and its bitter cold. Winter - you've worn out your welcome. The reality this year was that it was too cold to enjoy the snow. Izzy was outside for exactly 2 minutes when I took this photo. We didn't build forts or snowmen or go sledding.
Charlie did enjoy playing in the snow - and by playing I mean shoveling. He saw our elderly neighbor out shoveling and ran over to help her. She only let him help for a few minutes and paid him $5 for his effort. She should have let him continue, he would have cleared her whole drive. The kid likes a task.
Roxie likes the snow and runs through the yard at top speed. Ryan always tries to dump snow on her as she races past.
This is how Izzy enjoyed the snow - from the warmth of inside. That's my girl.
We're all ready to ditch this snow and cold for sunny, warm Southern California. Maybe by the time we come back, Spring will be just around the corner!
