For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11

The kiddos were so excited to wake up yesterday morning to find a little snow on the ground. We got around 1 inch, but it was enough for the kids to have a fun time in. They wanted to be outside in it the minute they woke and knew it was there. It was a short lived time for some of them. I believe that it took longer to put on the winter gear than Mia and Nate stayed outside. All of them found things to entertain themselves while enjoying the snow.The boys found a plastic tray that was instantly turned into a sled. It provided quite a bit of entertainment for all of them. It was cute to see them work together and share. They attempted to make a snowman;however, the ground coverage just wasn't enough to make one. I think Mandy sat for quite a time trying to make the body...she was definitely determined. Mia loved making snow angels, and of course, the boys had to try out every scary,dangerous stunt possible. I warned them that this momma didn't want any broken bones to deal with over Christmas. Thankfully all were safely seated at the table for our late breakfast and traditional hot cocoa to warm body and soul.

Wonderful pictures! We had only a light dusting of snow ~ I envy you your inch!! I have a feeling that God was looking out for us; Ashlie had no business going out in the snow after being so sick and still fighting her cough,and it would have been awfully hard on her if the other two got to go out and play.
