The city shut down Wednesday in anticipation. The boys stood watch at the door.
I then told the boys they needed to take their nap and snow would be falling when they woke up. Sure enough, it did.
It was the prettiest falling of snowflakes. Big clumps.
The boys woke up and we went outside to play.
We couldn't get enough. It continued to fall all the way to midnight.
Side note: Mr. Brigglesworth owns several thick jackets, but refuses to wear them. Even convincing him to wear two shirts was a battle.
|Telling Mimi to come outside and play!|
|All they wanted was a snow fight!|
The dogs were caught by surprise. My three barely went outside.
Then Kates and Hunter took off in the snow.
They loved it. We could not get them to come inside.
The next day, everyone was building snowmen. We did not get to. Mr. JCrew tried, but Little JCrew got hysterical when he started to roll up the ball of snow. He didn't want him to.
First thing Thursday morning, we played in the snow. The boys liked to walk and then turn around to see their footprints.
Mr. JCrew and I walked to the new house with a shovel in our hand to remove the snow on the foundation. We thought this would help get the workers back out there to finish.
We only shoveled in areas where they hadn't laid the beams above.
We came back to the house and played in the snow more.
This time, with a boogie-board "sled."
Mr. Brigglesworth kept falling.
But each time he'd say he was fine, just dirty.
Poor kid fell the first step he took out the door on Thursday.
The boys did not want to come in. They got out their shovels and were hard at work trying to clear a path.
We had to drag them in for a nap. Once Little JCrew woke up, he was dressing himself with his hat and gloves. His signal that he wanted to go outside to play in the snow.
And then they were out there again this morning. The snow has melted off the roadways and walkways, but they are still shoveling that snow that is left.
We will miss our snow. We had a lot of fun. But I am dreaming of warmer weather. I get the need for Spring Break now!
