After a morning of playing inside we finally bundled up and braved the cold weather for some snow fun. It was a chilling 20 degrees & since we live in the South we don't really own a lot of snow clothes. They were layered up well, but it was still COLD! We started out in the front yard and then progressed to the back for some more fun. Charlotte & I joined everyone for a few minutes before heading back inside to the warm house. Cold days always make me extra thankful that we have a nice warm home (and a daddy who works so hard to provide it!).
Poor Charlotte didn't really have any ultra-cold weather gear so she only got a couple of minutes in the snow. :)
Matt took the kids over to the driving range to try some sledding. They decided after a few minutes that they'd rather just play in the snow around our house.
Charlotte spent the entire time they were outside watching from inside. She was pretty content with this at first, but after awhile, she let it be known that she wanted to be outside, too!
Don't be deceived by this sweet smile. She spent most of her time outside trying to pelt Matt with snowballs! She's got pretty good aim, too!
I love this picture of Harrison. He was fussing at Matt because Matt kept tackling him & Harrison was trying to do his "work." He was pushing his bulldozer through the snow making roads. He spent most of his time outside doing this & make roads all through our yard.
I don't know if they loved the snow that much, or were just tired of being cooped up inside, but they stayed outside for almost 1 hour....in the freezing cold. They only came in because we MADE them and promised them a nice warm bath in our big tub. They came in and had to defrost before getting in the tub -- they were that cold. Harrison even had some cold whelps on his skin -- scared us to death! But, eventually they did defrost and played in the tub for another hour before getting out.
