Can y’all believe we had not one, but two snow days last week?? Well, technically, I guess the first one was more of a sleet day, but on day two we had really for real snow!
My monkeys had just as much fun playing in the snow as they did in the ice the day before.
Lucy especially enjoyed all the white fluff. She was less than one year old the last time we had any significant snow, and she has been dying to make a snow angel for years. At last her wish came true!
She left tiny snow angels scattered all around our yard.
Of course the monkeys had to build a snowman. Actually, Ty did most of the work himself. Lucy had a hard time getting the snow to stick together, so she quickly lost interest.
Have you ever seen anyone give a snowman a haircut??
Leave it to Ty, the creative genius, to use grapes for eyes and buttons. Oops! Looks like this snowman lost an eye before I snapped the picture.
The Tool Man entertained himself by capturing all the fun on camera with his drone.
You know that no snow day would be complete without a good natured snowball fight. Even I, the serious, sensible mom, hurled a snowball or two. Although, I quickly surrendered after I caught one with my teeth! I mean it. I literally caught a snowball in my mouth. (If you’re wondering, the Tool Man is the one who threw it at me.)
Lucy discovered that, in a pinch, a garbage can lid makes a pretty good sled.
If you’re wondering where Tacy was during all this snowy fun, she was warm and toasty in her crib enjoying a long winter nap. Hmmm. Sounds like a great way to pass the afternoon if you ask me!
