Winter Fun

Monday we had an incredible snowfall. Just last week it was looking like we only had a few more days until the last remaining snow patches around the yard would be gone for good. We were starting to think about gardens and yardwork and bringing the bikes back up to the garage. Then Monday morning we woke up to over a foot of snow on the ground with no sign of stopping anytime soon. By the time it finally did stop late Monday night we had 20 inches of gorgeous, fresh powder outside. This was the kind of snow that brings tears to the eyes of skiers everywhere. The kids had so much fun playing in it and I was VERY grateful again for Matt's snowblower! Here are a few pictures from last month when Matt took Nicole, Spencer and Paige ice fishing. They had a great time but as you can see from the last picture, the little ones were through well before Dad was!

And last of all, I thought I would throw in this picture of Claire. She has learned to pull herself up to anything that will hold still for more than 5 seconds. Such a happy girl!!

You got more snow in one day than we've had all winter. You can keep it there. It looks pretty in your back yard!! Matt is such a trooper taking them all ice fishing. Great pics!! And Miss Claire will probably be walking by the time we see her again. :(

What fun! Wish we were there to play in the snow (and then leave it). Does Matt let you use the snow blower? If so, it is kind of him to share. Cute pictures of all!
