The snow melted last week only to have Mother Nature dump about 6 more inches overnight Friday. It's beautiful if the only thing you have to do is sit by the fire and read a book. Bundling and loading up two small kids in this weather is the opposite of fun. However, today the sun was bright and the temps tolerable, so we made the best of it. After church, Lauren and I bundled up and played in the snow. We took advantage of life on the cul-de-sac and went sledding down the driveway and into the street.

She had so much fun! She climbed the "mountain" made by the snow plow, tasted snow (NOT my recommendation) and made several snow angels.
Even Bailey took a turn on the sled before enjoying an afternoon of R&R at Grandma & Grandpa's house.
Lauren enjoyed showing off her snow angel skills to Grandma & Grandpa and then finished up her snow fun with a nice mug of hot chocolate complete with marshmallows.

I'm glad I was able to enjoy the snow today with my girls. More snow on its way tomorrow and then the arctic freeze blows in. Bring on spring!

Very cute!

Am I a horrible mom to say I haven't taken my boys sledding? I don't think I have ever...maybe I should do that? We don't own a sled, though. I felt a little twinge of guilt the other day when I watched Wesley try to slide down our backyard "slope" on one of those cheap $3.88 Walmart plastic tables I put my plants on and that I keep on our deck.

Awww..brings back memories. I know the cold is awful but I loved playing in the snow when I was little and I hate that my kids don't get that experience.
