Winter Wonderland

This past weekend we woke up to snow.  Lots of snow. 
And then it snowed more.  All day long. 
The kids were freaking out, they were so unbelievably excited.  It was really fun watching Braden since he was so young last year and didn't really remember the whole Winter thing.  At first he kept saying, "Mommy, mommy it's raining!"  So cute.  Alexa was getting her hat and mittens on at about 6:30am, she was so ready to get out there and "make snowmen and snowballs and snow angels..."
How could I say no to that!?
So after breakfast we bundled up and headed out.

They had so much was so fun just watching them!
A few years ago I would have woke up, saw the snow and crawled back in bed.  Having kids makes everything so much more enjoyable, their excitement is so contagious.

I love this picture!!
Braden fell and Alexa ran right over to him to help him up and kept saying, "It's okay Buddy, I gotcha."  

Happy Winter! :)

Your pictures are good enough to almost make me want snow. :) The kids look like they are having so much fun. And you getting out there taking pictures is a fun mental picture. :) Hope your headaches are still better.

The kids look so cute!!! My boys are waiting for the snow here. It snowed a few weeks ago but it wasn't that much and it was gone too soon. The boys want to go sledding and snowboarding :)

You're right...having little kids DOES make everything seem different - more fun!

Great pictures! How fun that this is Braden's first snowy winter that he remembers! What's Christmas going to be like?

this looks like so much fun that it ALMOST makes me wish we had snow. Almost though, not really, I hate having to drive to work in the snow and get out and about. We had so much snow last year it knocked out our power, we had to stay at my brother's for three days and couldn't make it up our road once the power finally did come back on. BOO!!
