This winter has been brutal - with the ice, and snow, and cold. We have only had a few days where it warmed up enough to actually be outside for a while, so when those days arrived the kids and Jason headed out to make a snowman. Ellie was very excited to get to use her "snowman kit" that Santa brought last year.
Then they headed into snowball fight mode. This didn't last too long, because this snow was so compactable that those snowballs really hurt. Not ideal for a 4-year-old and 2-year-old. Where are those obnoxious, teenage boys when you need a target?!
And finally, they had a little taste test. For some strange reason, my kids love to eat snow. Of course, we always make sure to point out that one should only eat the nice, clean, new snow, and never dirty or yellow snow. Mmm-mmm-good.
