She's either showing off her massive hands or simply raising her hands in pure delight. Not sure which.
The snow stuck around for Monday's holiday and the kids frolicked outside for hours. Considering the potentially record-breaking forecast, Jon decided to invest in some snow boots and waterproof gloves of the appropriate size. They've been well used.
Tuesday morning brought more snow which caused a two-hour delay to the start of school. But now that they were properly outfitted, the kids were excited to walk to school with the flurries falling around them.
The snow changed to freezing rain which has coated every branch of every bush and tree. It's unbelievably pretty.
While Jon and I spent the day in our pajamas, the fun parents down the street helped the kids build an awesome snow fort complete with a snow recliner. That same fun mom also fed my kids lunch and gave the girls hand-warmers for their gloves. What good neighbors they are!
Snow days are a special treat when you live in the Pacific Northwest. And since there's no place to go, let it snow! Well, until tomorrow when I need it to clear out in time for Erin and family to fly safely into town and for me to make it to the airport and back.
