First Big Snow!

Yesterday we got our first "blizzard" of the winter season. The forecast was for 10-18 inches of snow, but it ended up being about 6 inches, which surprised me because it snowed pretty much all day.  The boys couldn't wait to head out to play so we got all our gear ready and put on and headed out for some sledding fun!

It's snowing!
Winter wonderland!
The boys all ready for some fun in the snow!
Evan had a much easier time getting around this year but this year he's able to get around so much easier!

This is the first time I have seen Shaun so excited about the snow!
This kid was born to play in the snow!
Look at that smile!

After some fun in the snow it was time to get down to business and get the driveway cleared.  The boys were happy to help Daddy, and grabbed their shovels.  

Such good little helpers!
Oh no!  Watch out for flying snow!

And there is nothing like getting a nice cup of hot chocolate after playing out in the cold snow!  With "smarshmallows"!

So we didn't get as much snow as we thought but it was a "winter wonderland" all day long.  It's the kind of snow you love to watch decorate the backyard, with big fluffy flakes falling from the sky.

After getting home from seeing a movie today the boys wanted to go outside before it got dark to have a snowball fight!  

Making snowballs with Daddy!
Evan got Shaun really good!
