the perfect day...

Caleb and I were enjoying a quiet morning together, but was quickly interrupted by our two little ones. We all cuddled on the couch as Caleb and I finished our devotions. We were enjoying one another and oblivious to the outside world when I got up to fill a bottle and looked outside. Our first real snow. It was so perfect. 


We opened the front door and just watched the snow pouring down.

It snowed most of the day. Quickly the brown we'd been looking at for months was covered it white. It was beautiful. 
Caleb was able to come home a little early from work to play with the kids. We quickly dressed them  and went outside. 
Elijah fell right in and rolled around. 

This was Nay's first real snow. She thought it was good for eating.


We did snow angels...


snowball fights...


and a snowman.
Nay's hands were like ice, but she didn't care. Neither one wanted to come in.

We got warm by the fire and ate brownies. (elijah ate his in one bite)

It was the perfect day.

I wish I could have been there for that! I love the look on Elijah's face after the brownie. Remember when we would lay on our stomach's out the front door and lick the first snow off the porch? give my love to everyone

How fun!!! We have been having fun in the snow here too but it's getting a little out of control.

oh how fun! my kids are desperate for some snow. it's been a little difficult to explain to them that florida isn't exactly known for its record snowfalls ;) i would LOVE to have just one good day of snow....and then return to our 60 degree winter the next day.

So much fun! Is there anything better than littles in their first snows?


We have had no snow here this year. Last year we had a bunch of cold icy weather with some white dust. This year it has been warm. Today it was in the 50s if not low 60s.
