Just When You Thought Spring Had Sprung...

... we have snow again!

This was at 8 o'clock this morning. Since the kids missed it last time they decided they'd get dressed early and go out in it this time before the sun melts it all.

They had great fun in their "Snow Castle"

I asked Josh if he'd like a snow shower. Of course he said yes so I told him to stand under the tree and pull one of the branches. He thought this was great!

Ellie soon joined in too.

She wanted to pull one of the branches for a snow shower but couldn't reach the branches of the Weeping Willow so she found a smaller tree to get under.

My snow baby before she came back inside.

Josh enjoying his snow shower.

My snow angel after his snow shower.
Please note he's wearing my wellies. We realised yesterday that his current wellies are now too small after he was trying to squeeze his feet into them with two pairs of socks on and he just couldn't get his feet in them. He took one pair of socks off and still had problems getting them on. However that was nothing compared to trying to get them off again!!
When I got Josh to measure his feet against mine later they were actually the same length. His are slightly narrower but heal to toe we match! I thought this morning it would be safer for him to wear mine. I still can't believe they fit. They grow up so fast don't they?!

Just love the photo's Fe... looks like you had as much fun taking the photo's as the children had playing in the snow. Especially love the one you've captured with Josh and the snow cascading from the tee....
