Let it snow! Let it snow!

Our Winter has been a very snowy winter thus far; and, really, it is not even officially winter until December 21st.

Our first snow storm of the year hit the day before Thanksgiving. It really wasn't all that bad, but it was pretty and did slow down driving some that evening. But, not enough to keep me totally home bound.

It was just too nice not to grab my camera and take some pictures at the park. Actually, Mark was amazed that we were getting that much snow and it wasn't even Thanksgiving yet, so he was trying to take a few pictures with his cell phone. That was all the encouragement I needed to grab my camera and tripod and have some fun.
(Now, some of you may be wondering "Who is Mark?" That is another post entirely. Some day I may even get around to that. For now, let me just say "Thank you Catholic Match for bringing TN and MN together!")

Tuesday, November 30th, we awoke to a winter wonderland.

Friday, December 3rd, ushered in yet another storm. Which provided plenty of fun for Magdalene's 10th Birthday party on Sunday, the 5th. I will post pictures of her birthday in a separate blog!

Now today we were hit with the biggest snow storm yet. I guess some are saying our biggest snow storm since the Halloween Blizzard of 1991.

So, tonight after dinner we all bundled up in our snow gear and went out to play.
Oh no... I am being swallowed by a snow-a- constrictor!
The kids really enjoyed burying me in the snow!

I don't think Kolbe enjoyed it much! In some places the snow was taller than he is so it was hard for him to walk around the yard.
We finished the evening off with hot chocolate and a game of Apples to Apples.
Days like today are just such fun!

I enjoyed all the photos! While we did get some snow yesterday, it was probably only a few inches and nothing like what you all experienced. Wow!
Thank you for sharing Mark with us :) Yes, would love to read more sometime, but I'm celebrating along with you for bringing TN to MN. Advent Blessings to you and your family!

It's so nice to see you so happy Kristina. You two are a very good looking pair.
Glad you had fun with the snow, it ruined our birthday party for Cecilia; she'll be the only one who hasn't gotten a big hubbub. Oh well.
