The front of the house
The boys ran to put on their boots, coats and hats over their pajamas. Then they just stood outside with their mouths open, expressions of pure joy on their faces!
Henry got it figured out pretty quickly. He made snowballs, ran around in the yard, discovered that "It's fun to fall down in the snow!" and asked for help building a snowman.
Jonah enjoyed it, but not quite as much as Henry. He couldn't help but be excited because the rest of us were so excited, but I don't think he liked having cold hands! Because we don't usually have snow around here, we no longer keep good gloves in the house.....so the boys had pretty wet hands by the time we were done.
Here's Henry with his first snowman. This one survived. His second and third ones were taller than he was, but Elmer got a little excited and knocked them down (before I could take pictures!).
It didn't last long. By the afternoon most of the snow was gone, and the snowmen were getting pretty small.
Every day since (at least four times a day) Henry has been praying about the snow. He thanks God for the snow he sent and tells him how much fun he had and always remembers to ask for more! :)
Happy Winter to you all! Hope you all enjoy the last few weeks of the season!
