“Mommy, it’s bitter cold out there.”
“Look how snowed the deck is!… Poor termites. I said poor termites because of the snow… Will it make a cool sound when it stops snowing?”
“How will it get unsnowed?… When will it melt?… I got an idea! I can just use my rain boots cause snow is just frozen rain.”
That night, we ventured forth into the backyard!…
“Mommy, I’m going to throw a snowball at you–right in the NOSE!!!”
“Mommy, are you okay?!?”
Oh, yes! I only scream because it makes your brother laugh.
“Okay, good!… In that case, why don’t you get her again, big brother!”
“I’ve fallen and I can’t get up.”
Peepah. Sweetly observing the chaos from the warmth of the kitchen.
“What in tarnation is this blasted contraption?”
“Pull us, Mom! It’s a snow train!”
“Whee! Keep going, Mommy!”
The next day, with our neighbors!…
“This is my first time sledding!!!!”
“Now with my neighbor, Joshua!!”
Okay, Bubbers. Your little brother has finally warmed up to being out here. Let’s give him a turn on the sled.
“This is my first time sledding, too!!!”
What did you think, Scooty-tots? Would you like to go again?
“Sure!! Now I’ll go with Bubbers!”
“Oh, man, this is fun! I hope it snows like this again!!”
p.s. Thank you for all your pictures, Amy!!
