Snow Day

We enjoyed all the snow we got today. It literally snowed all day long. It was constant and so pretty. We went out around 10 this morning to build a snowman but Luke wanted no part of the snow, the cold or being outside, period. So, I told Jacob we would go back out when Luke was taking his nap. I hate that Luke missed out on the fun but maybe next time.

Luke did venture out into the snow but quickly wanted my help out!

Now he's happy

Jacob trying to find our flowers

Here's our snowman. Thanks to Bob the Builder for the hat and Mr Potato Head for the eyes, mouth and arms. And Jacob was so excited about the carrot nose.

Once Jim got home, it was time for a snowball fight. Not sure who had more fun, Jim or Jacob!

I tried again with Luke but he was happy just staying on the patio

Although Jim did carry him out in the yard but only lasted about a minute. Poor little guy!

Lovin' every minute of it

Catching snowflakes with his tongue


  1. Oh my gosh! I just can't believe all the snow yall got!! how fun!!! So glad Jacob had fun playing out in it and got to build his snowman! Stay warm! Love you!

  2. Luke is just not a fan of the snow! But, Jacob looks like he enjoyed it enough for both of them! Ya'll's snowman is SO cute! Fun. Fun. Fun.

  3. Oh my, it looks like you guys had all sorts of fun! Sorry little Lukie didn't want to partake. I can't blame him. I hate having wet feet! Looks like Jacob and Jim had lots of fun in the snow together. Kids sure do make things a lot more exciting!

  4. I still can't believe all the snow you guys got up north! It's always a treat when the kids (OK, maybe just Jacob!) can experience the white stuff since we don't get it too often, at least in those amounts! And I LOVE how creative you guys were with the snowman...Mr. Potato Head eyes cracked me up! He looked great!

  5. See, now this makes me feel like we're a little closer together! I love the snowman and that he has been appropriately accessorized with Bob the Builder and Mr. Potato Head parts. The black and white pics are my favorite. Their faces say it all - Luke wants no part of it and Jacob is having the time of his life. =) Hugs to all.
