It was a strange weekend…60 degrees on Saturday followed by about 12 hours of snow Sunday.  It started just before the boys and I headed out to walk to church, so it was a fun walk down the alley.  (Our church meets in a building at the other end of our block.) Sammy and Eli were really excited about it all and had their tongues out trying to catch snowflakes for most of the walk.  Then it all got to be too much for them (snow was coming down pretty heavy at this point and hitting us in the face) so they finished the walk walking backwards holding my hand.  We had church and it continued snowing pretty hard.  The boys and I played outside for a few minutes while we were waiting for Charlie to get home from church and they loved it!  Then we went to small group after church and stayed till about 5:00.  Still snowing hard, and it was really sticking to the streets at this point.  When we got home, Charlie and the boys played outside (I was out for  a bit to document video and photos, but I was wimpy about the cold).
It was a beautiful snow.

Then more playing in the snow at 8 a.m. today!!!  It’s melting very quickly since the high is in the 40’s today, but it was fun while it lasted!  Here are some photos rom today:

Ready for snow!  

Charlie made a swing out with a baseball bat

Fun, but not too sturdy

Eli loved it

Sammy swung on the rope by itself, but the picture I took of him was just his back.  Moving on to Abraham’s turn on the swing.

Sammy’s snow angel

Cute picture of rosy cheeks and Sammy busy doing…something.

Sammy went down the slide.  Then rested for a minute  at the bottom.

Me and Eli

Don’t be fooled, I spent most of the time inside the warm, quiet house making these:
