Let it Snow and Snow and Snow....

We got dumped on Christmas Eve. It was so much fun to wake up to it snowing outside. (We're very grateful it waited until after we got home from Salt Lake to start though.) It just snowed and snowed all day. No doubt about having a white Christmas for us.

The kids played outside for a really long time. Worked out great for me, I got lots of wrapping and baking done. The snow was just perfect for snowman building and they worked hard.

The snow blower's belt fell off and we had to call my dad in to help us get it up and running again. Here he is giving it a whirl. He played with it almost as long as the kids worked on their snowman. (Look at all the snow in the driveway, and we had to plow two more times that day.)

A shot of my house with all the winter snow on it. (Jennifer, I took this just for you so you could see the outside of my house.) I thought it looked like a perfect winter postcard or something.


And finally, Frosty is up! A carrot nose, and oreo eyes and mouth, he got stick arms later. He's standing right out my back window, it's so fun to look out and see a great big snowman staring at me. I just love all this snow. It makes it truly feel like Christmas again to me. (But I wouldn't be opposed to it melting in February.)
