What could be more educational than learning to build your very first snowman? How about learning what frostbite feels like? Yikes!
Throwing snowballs is fun!
My two Texas kids don’t have much experience when it comes to snow. It was like waking up to a winter wonderland this morning and there was no way school was going to start as usual in our house! We put on our boots, coats, and smiles… and headed out to play.
Here’s my boot print. These are genuine rubber cowgirl rain boots.
Take a look at our sweet little snowman. He has rock buttons, orange-flavored chewing gum nose, stick arms, a pipecleaner scarf, a carved snow smile, and two little zante currants for eyes! He’s a good-lookin’ cowboy snowman (minus the hat). He’s still out there (although much of his landscape is now melted away). He has lost a button… but is hanging on.
Here’s what the rug at our doorstep says…. glad I didn’t get rid of it after Christmas.
We’re off to get the oil changed and the kids are going to do a little school (even though the rest of the kids in our area have taken the day off) while Mom packs our bags for a warm Texas trip.
What a blessing to get to play in the snow. Hope you are having a wonderful Friday and an even better weekend with your family and friends. I’ll be sure to update you all with postcards from our Texas trip and even possibly (shhhh!) a new blog design for February!
God bless each of you and may you be warm and happy!
