Snow Fun!

Posted on January 23rd, by Amy in My kids. 16 comments

It has been snowing a lot this week, and the wet heavy kind.  Usually we get the powder fine snow that is easy to shovel, but hard to build a snowman with! With 6 inches in the driveway I headed out with the girls after lunch, while Owen napped, to get the shoveling out of the way.  I probably ought to have returned indoors right away, but I decided to help build a sledding ramp with the girls!
 Ella built her snowman, while I built the sled hill with Emmalie and Sophia.
Aren’t they cute!?

The girls gravitate to the piles of shoveled snow, to go down on with the sleds – which is fine and lots of fun, until it ends up where it has been nicely shoveled from.  I don’t care too much if it’s just our space, but more often than not it’s a neighbors property and I end up shoveling in again!  Don’t want to upset the neighbors :)

Five minutes after I came in, there was a pounding on the door – Sophia can’t open it with her mittens on!  “Ella wants to show you something!”
“Just come see!”

She’s sitting on top of her snowman!

Love these girls!
Now I’m off to sew and bake cookies before Owen wakes up!  Then I might have to take him out to try the sled hill out – he LOVES sledding :)  Hopefully it lasts the rest of winter!

  1. it looks like a lot of fun! I have to say I am glad that our snow is mostly melted though. :D maybe if ours had come with less brutal cold we could have enjoyed it more.

  2. i am so envious of all your snow…it is just cold here. and i think if it is winter and cold then it should be snowy as well.

  3. Looks like fun! I love the picture of your daughter sitting on top of her snowman. We haven't had fresh snow in a couple weeks, so this looks lovely!

  4. Those photos say it all. Family fun in the snow = great memories. What beautiful smiles they have, and you're a good mommy for doing all that shoveling!

  5. I am so incredibly jealous – and I'm just in Provo…we've had lousy snow down here lately!!!
    Looks like so much fun :)

  6. That looks so fun! I've never lived in the snow so I can only imagine how fun it would be to play in the snow all the time! Your kids look so happy!
