And it SNOWS... AGAIN!!!!

This snow, this snow was awesome. It was the snow you wanted when you were a little kid so you could have snowball fights and built a monster snowman with! It was the PERFECT SNOW FOR PACKING!!!! There were so many snowmen up that when we went out today, we were looking at them all and comparing them! It reminded me of looking at all of the lights at Christmas! Nathan and Chayse made a huge snowman this morning... Chayse in her normal snow loving fashion tried to eat it! She cracks me up! Garris hung out in the house while we were outside... he was busy watching a Baby Einstein video! He never even missed us! This snow melted as fast as it came though and that was kind of sad... Chayse would have loved to been able to play in it for longer but it just wasn't ment to be.

The veiw from here...

is white, white, white!

Now I Now....

Yep, those are the new words to the ABC song according to Chayse. She is singing lots of little songs with all of her new words and this one, the good ole ABC's is one of my favorites! It goes a little something like this...

A-B-C-D-Now I now my A-B-C.

She cracks me up. I am trying to get it on video but that is wishful thinking at times! She never does anything when we ask her to! If I can catch it, I will post it!

Finally, we get to play in the snow!

The snow came and it is still here and we are loving it!! Just loving it!!! FINALLY! We finally got above freezing here today and it was in the low 40's with the sun shining!! It was awesome weather outside and a perfect day for a snow play date! We had our fantastic baby sitter Allison and her boyfriend Ryan over today and then we played with some of our neighbors that live down the street! Being that we don't get snow too often here, and usually not enough to play in (we get ice most of the time) we were not really to play in it as far as a sled goes... so we used a garbage can lid and it worked wonders! Chayse had a blast and a half playing and loved that she could be outside for more than 10 mins! It was so much fun watching her actually enjoy the snow! She would come down on the lid and as soon as she was done, you would hear her say "again again" over and over. She is in the midst of a vocabulary EXPLOSION and it has been amazing watching her vocalize everything she is wanting. It is so amazing watching this little girl grow up right before our eyes! We are so blessed!! It was warm enough that I felt comfortable taking Garris out in the snow for a bit today. He had no clue that anything was any different than it is any other day but he has now seen snow!! I took his bouncy seat out and let him hang in it while we continued to play.

We were able to make a VERY small snowman as this snow was not packing well. It was fun to play in but it was not good snow for snow balls or snowmen. We tried though! Chayse's favorite part about the snow? Well, that is easy... she wanted to eat it! YUM!
