Snow Day

We've had a rough couple of weeks around here!  First, Adam got the stomach flu and missed three days of school.  The upset tummy stuck around for close to a week.  Then, Scott got the stomach flu, and he's been sick all week.  He's finally started to feel better.  We're hoping that it ends with the two of them! So, when it started snowing this morning, we were all excited to spend sometime outside doing something fun!
Adam has been waiting for snow since before Christmas.  He asked me several times during his break from school when it was going to snow because it's supposed to snow at Christmastime.  I told him we lived in the wrong place for snow on Christmas.  But, finally today, it snowed.  Both boys were so excited and they spent quite a bit of time outside.  Scott joined them for a snowball fight and to build a snowman.  Here they are doing both.

 Kate and I joined them for a little bit.  Kate was all bundled up and she enjoyed sitting in the snow watching her crazy brothers.
 Here's the snowman. We finally got to use the snowman kit that Aunt Tiffy gave us for Christmas, two years ago...
 One last pic of cute Kate, sitting by the snowman!
It's supposed to be cold all weekend and possibly into the start of the week. Luckily, Adam doesn't have school on Monday or Tuesday, so if the snow sticks around there won't be any makeup days.  We'll see!

Kate is looking so big! I guess I was hoping she'd stay newborn size until I get to meet her. I hope you get to have lots of snow the next couple days. No better way to do it than when you won't have to make up snow days!
