White Christmas

on January 10, 2011

The last time we had a white Christmas was well over 5 years ago. This year the snow started on Christmas Eve. It was beautiful, especially because we had no where we needed to be so we could hang out at home and enjoy it. It was the best kind of snow ever. It packed really well and made a great snowman. It wasn’t just the first white Christmas in a long time but it was also Zachary’s first time out in the snow. I wasn’t sure how he would like it. We got both kids bundled up and ready to go. Zachary was in heaven! He thought it was the coolest thing ever. I should have anticipated his reaction as he really loves being outside. Stephen put both kids on the sled and pulled them around the yard. The look on Zachary’s face was priceless. We were outside for quite awhile before Zachary tipped over the edge of the sled and face planted directly into a pile of snow. I expected him to cry but when I picked him up he was laughing. Stephen and I decided that it was time to take him in, much to his dismay. He went in willingly, but only because he thought Emily and I were following. It took him a few minutes before he looked out of his bedroom window and saw us playing. He started crying and was very jealous that we were still outside.

Emily made a couple of snow angels and helped make her first ever snowman, or I should say snow woman. She named her flower. She didn’t really want to come inside but the talk of hot cocoa sweetened the deal for her. It was a lot of fun to play outside with both of the kids. Zachary would love to get some more time outside in the snow next time around.
