Snow Days...

We got snow! I love the snow. And lucky for me, we got enough to actually play in! And sled too!! The first day, me and Austin got to play out there together. It was a lot of fun. We both hopped on my sled and Mommy pulled us up the hill. Along the way we were trying to grab some snow and make snow balls. That didn't work out to well. I didn't realize that I needed to hold the clumps of snow gently so they wouldn't break apart. The snow wasn't wet enough for actual snow balls. So no snowman building for us that day. We had a hard time walking in the snow. There was like 8 inches! But, either way, it was still fun to be out there with my buddy.

As you can tell, I really like to be outside. With snow, or without. It's just a little more fun with it.

At one point, Austin's mommy ran down the hill with me on the sled. I loved it! Except when I'd fall backwards cause I couldn't hold myself sitting up. It was a little like whiplash.

And we chased Austin down the hill.. That was a really good day.

A few days later, when Daddy was home, we went out and played again. Marley makes a good sled dog. She especially likes it when you throw her a snowball to chase. I laughed the entire ride. This day, we got to make a snowman. And I got to throw a few snowballs too. Mommy and Daddy both helped make my snowman.

Daddy liked showing me how to roll the snow in the big ball. It was hard to do by myself so he helped push it. I wanted a really big snowman.

So we rollled, and rolled, and rolled.

Than we flattened a little to make the body parts stay together.

Added a little more snow on the middle. Then me and Daddy went hiking past the stream in back to find some sticks for my snowman's arms.

Packed a little snow between body parts to keep him together, and put some eyes, a nose, mouth, buttons, arms, and a scarf. And you know what you get? A snowman!

I thought he needed just a little more snow. Before we found the sticks, I thought it'd be a good idea to make some arms out of snow. I even put some on the snowman and said that it was his arms. Mommy and Daddy thought that was pretty funny since they hadn't mentioned anything about arms to me yet.
After over a hour outside, it was time to go inside and take a nice long nap. Happy days.
