Winter showed up again last week with a snow day! This time there was actually several inches of snow and plenty to play in. Mac loves snow and was so thrilled to wake up and see the ground covered in white. He immediately wanted to go outside. Since there was quite a bit of accumulation, most everything was closed, including the church office :) I was so glad Sam was able to stay home and play with Mac. I was also glad that I could go outside for just a bit and then watch happily from the window with Drew, warm and cozy inside! The snow melted pretty quickly the next day, but it was a blast while it lasted.
Trying to scoop up very powdery snow to make a snowman...the early morning snow wasn't cooperating too well for snowmen or snowballs
Mac LOVES Frosty the Snowman and immediately wanted to get to work making him. Due to the snow, Frosty was unable to visit...we did, however, get to see his baby brother :) But that didn't dampen Mac's excitement one bit. He was so glad to be out in his "Thomas" boots, affectionately named because they are blue and red just like Thomas the Tank Engine (and Sam got him ready to go outside and pulled out the hat you see here, which happens to be a hat that goes with a set of pajamas he has! haha Oh well, whatcha gonna do?!)
A late afternoon outing into the snow, which was now perfect for snowballs and snowmen. And "ice cream", which is what Mac is eating.
There's Frosty!!! He came after all...complete with tootsie pop nose, pretzel mouth and cheez it eyes! Although the snow was gone the next day, Frosty was not! He lasted several days, gradually shrinking until all that was left was a heap of twigs and soggy snacks.
