That's exactly what my hubby said when he opened our bedroom curtain this morning and saw this...
Before we both knew it, little feet and some big feet were running around the house shouting, "Austin, there is a million snow outside!" (Grant was the cutie that said that).
You could also hear, "We don't have school today!" "We don't?!" "No, we don't!" " Yesss!"
And about 20 minutes later, our kiddos were doing stuff like this outside before they even had breakfast.
No! Snow-covered basketball, of course!
2 points for Busse.
Gigantic balls of snow were made.
Fletch was in his glory in all of the white stuff.
Happy snowmen were made.
Happy, English kids that have never seen, at least in their own little town, this amount of snow played endlessly!
Sweet hubs made giant snowballs to win the snowball fight.
My sweet little guys posed like this to make me smile behind the lens.
And those giant snowballs made these gargantuan snowmen.
We then headed to the Lymm Dam, which I often talk about, but have never seen in its new beauty.
I love these duck pictures.
Shawn is always willing to pose for me blog. He likes me like that.
OK, this is VERY atypical what you are seeing right here. Do you see where all that mud is? That's generally where you'll find rabbits running around on green grass. Well maybe not at this time of year because they're hiding out, but we've seen it many times and Fletch can vouch for that. Seeing scads of people sledding, a.k.a. "sledging" as is said in these parts, is not NORMAL! There were at least a hundred people roaming around, slipping, sliding, and just having a plain old good time.
Then there was this type of thing. You know. The using-anything-you-can-find-to-get-you-from -the-top-of-the-hill-to-the-bottom kind of thing. The all important big, yellow bag.
And, of course, the styrofoam that came from Christmas somewhere under the tree in a box.
Hey, whatever works.
