Snow Day

The snow finally came our way in the middle of the afternoon. After about an hour and half of trying to find the kids' winter stuff we made it outside.

She sat here for a while watching Cade and Rusty throw snowballs at a tree.

Bombarding Dad with his surprise stash of snowballs.

Waving at the birds flying into our tree.

Just thought this was a sweet picture.

Trying to warm up with Daddy.

Aren't these the cutest footprints?

Cade insisted on carrying his huge snowball during our "snow walk". He told us it was good exercise for him.

The whole time we were outside, I couldn't help but think that once again, Lydia reminded me of something:
