Obligatory Photos of Kids Frolicking in the Snow

Baby Wingnut was beside himself with joy. "I have a snow ball fight!" he declared.

It snowed yesterday.  He is too young to remember snow from last year and I could not wait to send him out in it.  He did not disappoint.  He outlasted Special K and ended up coming in at last because he kept losing his boots.

This was our first real snow of the winter and the children enjoyed the 1.5 inches as much as they were able.  Today it is a complete ice rink.  I honestly think one could truly skate in our cul de sac.

The best aspect of having ice and snow here in DC is all the children's activities will be cancelled for today.  I love being snowed in and not having to chauffeur everyone around. I'm going to make a huge pot of white bean soup and homemade bread!

As soon as I opened the door, these two took off running.
Skoshi A with Baby Wingnut enjoying our pathetic little patch of snow.
Now this is truly sad.  OJ is building a snow fort.  That would be the little mound of snow she is so lovingly patting down.  Very rarely does DC get a good fort building snow.

This would be our skating rink.  Yes the tire marks are from Wingnut's car.  He had to leave bright and early this morning to defend our freedoms.  Thank you Wingnut!  I said a little prayer for you this morning as you headed out on these treacherous roads.

What a rink! Be careful out there! said...

That looks slick.

Here in Portland we had a nice snow/slush storm while I was out trying to get to a Dr appointment. I had four scared kids in the back seats all saying prayers on the way home as cars slipped and slid all around us.
