While Mother Nature and Mr. Winter battled through the night over whether or not it's Spring or Winter, we clearly noticed that Mr. Winter won the war. He left in a hurry, but not without a gift for the sleepy heads in our home. One-by-one the kids came running down the hall saying "No school, it's a snow day," while Vic and I responded with, "we know," and then look back out the window toward the thick white beauty that was displayed before us.
Our day was clearly going to be fun.
This is how it went....
It may not look like a lot of snow to those who live in the snow country, but here in Arizona, snow is super cool, since we don't get that much.
Before we could get little Sophia dressed in her snow gear, she pulled on her boots over her horse pajamas and ran out the door to explore.
Ballerina twirls were first on the list of playing in the fresh snow.
After we all got properly dressed [some of us] for the cold and snow, the kids were antsy to get on the quad for some sledding.
Our friends, Craig and Cari, who were "snowed in" with us, joined in the fun. Craig hooked up the kids with a mighty fine tow rope complete with a tree branch handle.
Off they went cruising in the front yard!
Codi had it down, she was a quad-pulling-sled-riding-pro by the end of the day.
Lucy and Jack loved the snow too!
After all of the big kids had their fun, it was time for Sophia to have a turn.
Snow bunnies, Codi and Cari, lookin good on the slopes of the front yard!
