snow days

The boys are loving the snow this year. They always have but its even more fun as they get older.. and its so much easier as they get older too! I REALLY love that part! 

Fun fact: Rivers school still goes outside every day as long as it is 30 degrees or higher. So, if its 30 degrees and theres an inch of snow (or even more) on the ground.. they are still going outside to play. (He LOVES it! I feel bad for his teacher as I am sure she does not love standing in the cold.)

Anyway, its not often the snow is out along with the sun so I took advantage and went out with them and snapped pictures.

We had to work on not throwing snow at each other or in the face .. but other than that they could stay out here for the entire afternoon.

Also, that patagonia snowsuit we ordered off ebay when River was a baby .. this is now the 3rd winter its gotten use. Id say that purchase is paying off.

side note: here is River in it when he was a little itty bitty muchkin.. and here is a post of all 3 of them in the snow last year when chapel was a baby and I cant get over how little they all are!!!

Here's to winter coming in full force! Its been snowing for a few days and its about 20 degrees now. (it was 11 degrees yesterday)

I dont mind it. And it still isnt bad snow where we are cooped up in the house or anything. I still havent seen lake effect snow like we saw in Erie. We have lake effect snow here.. but it just hasnt dumped nearly the same as it did there. (yet?) I mean we'd get over a foot of snow at once there. Maybe its coming here or maybe it just happens certain winters. Who knows? Either way - I LOVE IT and I'll take whatever we get!

The boys are loving it. I love the coziness of it. Thankfully none of us mind days at home or getting out in it if we need too.

Happy Friday! We have friends coming one last time to visit us and Im so excited!
