Today we woke to snow. A beautiful surprise.
At first I was a secretly disappointed and apprehensive learning church was canceled and the kids and I would be home bound all day. We never stay in all day. I know, we are spoiled here in the south.
Surprising the snow has had sort of a tranquil affect on the boys. They've been content to play, color, eat a little, stare out the window, play, eat again, and then more starring out the window. Magic I say. Hardly any whining, arguing or general ill moods.
Thank you for the snow Lord. The boys were quieted by your awesome creation.
.... a few pictures from our short but memorable time in the snow.
Here they are getting acquainted with the foreign elements. Soon after, Josiah was doing laps around the backyard laughing all the way.
Next, Josiah found it amusing to get snow on mommy via snowballs.
Below is Titus. He didn't care for the snow that much and came inside asking for "lassses." After 10 times or so of going back and forth:
"Mommy, I want Lasses." and Mommy saying- "Titus, baby, I don't know what you are asking for." He finally elaborated and said "spida-man lasses." Oookay. I suppose lasses are pretty similar to glasses, but with the cloudy snowy day who is thinking about sun glasses? Funny thing was he didn't want them for his eyes, rather his nose. Your guess is probably better than mine.
