Snow , glorious snow!-

Well, it snowed Tuesday and boy did we make the most of it! The boys were biting at the bit to get outside right after they woke up and saw all the snow.

It wasn't supposed to start snowing until 9 am, but by 8:45-ish the ground was already covered. Nice.:) The boys bolted out the door right after breakfast and engaged in a little practice round of snowball fighting...they were getting warmed up for later.

We started on a snowman that Braden and Zekes helped me with while Ailey sat in the snow for a bit enjoying herself, until....the snow melted and soaked through her suit. Zekey also added to her misery by pelting her in the face with a snow ball. That's some sibling love, right there!

She tolerated sitting in a chair for a little while longer, but then she was DONE! Then Sam got to come home early because they closed the base down! Woohoo! Don't you just love Texas?! Any "extreme" weather and everything closes down. ;) Sam and the boys went back out and finished our snowman. The boys and I then proceeded to go out and walk around our little neighborhood. We happened upon some neighbors building a ginormous snowman and we totally wanted in on that! Three snowmen later and it was quite time for a snowball fight! Yeah! The boys were so funny! Then some more neighbors came out and played and we had even more fun. After all of that, it was time to head back home because Sam had some hot chocolate waiting for us. MMMMMmmmmmm. Zekes went down for a nap and Braden continued to play outside for quite a while. (Totally takes after me wanting to play in the snow. I LOVE snow!) We ended the day with taco stew and chillin'. I am still sore from that snowball fight....:p
