Yesterday we had the first major snow storm of the year. Topeka got about 3 inches initially which was enough to have the kiddos begging to go out and play in it. If you remember from the last snow day's post, Lydia thoroughly enjoyed discovering snow. I'm pretty sure she'd forgotten what it was like since her last romp in the snow, so it was like discovering it all over again.
Once again, Cade showing Lydia that this stuff was, in fact, perfect for making those hard, packed snowballs that sting on impact.

About a week before Lydia's birthday party, I finally found a place that sold Jayhawk pinatas. I ordered it on Monday and it was here on Tuesday. It came from Manhattan, Ks and it couldn't have made Miss Lydia more happy!
Wonder what the Mexicans thought of this when they were putting the Jayhawk pitahtah together.
I thought it was pretty funny that while it was a Jayhawk pinata, it came from Manhattan all wrapped up in purple and white packing paper. It's only appropriate, don't you think?
