How We Spent Our Snow Storm

How We Spent Our Snow Storm - Ann Again and again

After weeks of our girls looking out the window and pleading for snow, it finally arrived on Thursday.  Our city of Portland reacts with caution when it snows so we were notified that we could pick-up our children from school early if we felt nervous about the conditions.  Seeing as how I am not a seasoned driver in the snow our daughter's were pretty darn happy when they got out at noon.

And they weren't the only ones ;->

This was Benny's second run in the snow for the afternoon so I caught him a little tuckered out.

After hours of snow fall there was a perfect amount to start a friendly snowball fight.  Cars were still slipping on the street we live on, one almost took out one of our trees, so the driveway was the place to play.

Watching the fun from the coziness of the living room window Katie couldn't take it any more and ran out to make a snow angel.  No coat, light weight pants and tennis shoes.  Ahh, the excitement at 16!

Time to head to the backyard and gather some wood for the fireplace.  I love the quiet that comes with snow fall.  Especially how it makes our normally evergreen trees and bare Winter branches become a soft, beautiful vision in white.

A few days of snow can be fun.  Thinking warm thoughts for those that are caught in the weeks of this stuff!  How does it looks where you are?
