I Heart Snow

Well, unless you have been living in a deep dark cave you should know by now that it SNOWED yesterday!! I actually heard on the news that every state in the United States except for Hawaii had snow on the ground yesterday...isn't that incredible??

We got out of school at lunch, and my car was already covered. I went home, and started cooking. I have no idea why, but when it snows I feel this need to cook. I remember my mother doing the same thing, so I guess it's normal. HA! I made some Cake Pops and Red Velvet cookies...I'll share more about that later...

Despite my still "foot-in-the-boot" state from the last snowfall, I was determined to go enjoy the snow. So, while my Cake Pops were setting up I very carefully put on Brad's hunting boots, and went outside to the Winter Wonderland in our yard!! I paid for it later because my ankle hurt sooo bad, but it was soooo WORTH IT! I HEART SNOW :)

All of our neighbors, young and old, had been building snowmen in their front yards...it was really so very Norman Rockwell on our street! I couldn't be left out, so I made one too. Meet Frostette, my snowgirl :)Yes, that would be an orange hairbow on her snowhead...I think Frostette was the cutest on the street!

This was the snowman that the elderly couple across the street had made together. I watched them from our living room window work to build the little guy. It. was. PRECIOUS. They worked so hard, and when he was finally complete, with hat and carrot nose in place, they hugged and stood back looking at their creation. PRECIOUS. I hope that's exactly what Brad and I are doing in 35-40 years!!

Brad finally got home, and we had a snowball fight - well, basically Brad threw snowballs at me while I screamed and tried to dodge them - before we had to go to his grandmother's for a birthday celebration. It was such a FABULOUSLY wonderful, snow-filled day!!
