Snow and more snow

This is Sam's smowman from earlier this week. It's about 14" tall!

The girls went outside during the day while it was snowing.

Your never too old to make a snowman. Sam decided to make a "normal" sized snowman after we had enough snow to MAKE one.

More snow has fallen this week than we've seen in 5 years. The snow has been falling off and on all week. We would get an inch or two and then partially melt, snow a little more and then melt, etc. But yesterday it snowed all day and we ended up with about 7-8 inches by last night. I had to drop something off at my work, so the girls and I went for a walk last night. It was a lot of fun to walk around, looking at the beautiful snow. This morning when we got up we saw something else we haven't seen in awhile.......the SUN!! The combination of the sun and all that snow is absolutely amazing! Our Christmas break was suppose to have started after school today (Friday), but due to our weather we've been out of school since Wednesday. (School was 2 hours late on Monday and regular schedule on Tuesday....that's it for the week!) Around here, when we have snow, school is canceled due to the fact that we have alot of hills and back roads that the buses drive on. SO - our Christmas break just got longer and our summer vacation just got shorter.
