Getting out

After numerous days of being cooped up in the house due to the nasty stomach bug, we got out of the house...and we didn't let the snow stop us!  Thursday night we had a big (2-4inches) snow, which meant no school Friday.  I wasn't prepared, but that didn't stop us from having fun!  We may get one snow a year, sometimes two and they are usually pretty small.  Max and Claire do not have snow boots, pants or jackets.  I ended up putting plastic bags over their shoes to keep them from getting wet.

I probably spent 20 minutes getting the dressed and only 15 outside!  They thought it was cool, but weren't sure about touching and playing in it.  I tried to show them how to make a snow angel, but they weren't too impressed!
 you can barely see my outline of an angel!

 It was such a pretty day.  I took this pic while doing my snow angel, that's why it's upside down!

Claire was ready to head in.  I think they would have had more fun if Justin had been home.  I'm sure he would have been more fun and built them a snowman or make a makeshift sled :)

More on our weekend tomorrow!  Still doing laundry to get all the stomach bug germs OUT of this house!

  1. I hadn't even thought about covering their shoes in plastic bags, good idea! At least you didn't have to use socks on their hands. :)
