This past weekend, we were so happy to get our first (and most likely last) snowfall of the season (possibly of the year). The kids had so much fun playing in it. Here's a few pictures.

The snow was much thicker across the street at the park, so we went over there for a while. I believe this big snowball that Matthan was playing with was Aubie's attempt to start a snowman. Matthan just wouldn't let us make one--he kept stomping it or whatever else.

In this first picture of Aubie, you can see one of the huge snow clumps right in front of her jacket. If it hadn't been coming down so hard, the snow wouldn't have gotten so thick on the ground since it barely got to 32 degrees all day.

Since we had to wait until the day after to make our snowman, we had to work with top-of-the-car snow. Poor little thing looks more like a bird in the first shot. We had to move him to a new home so he wouldn't melt so quickly. With this old white tarp in the background, it looks kinda like an ice cave--a great new home for a little snowbird.

As you can see, the kids had a lot of fun! Jennifer from Wisconsin and Becki from SD are working with me to figure out an economical way to ship us some snow, but so far none of us have come up with a solution. Oh well. I think this'll do me till next winter. :)
