We had a real snow storm this week...not the kind we usually have where you see lots of pretty snow outside and then go out to find 4 inches of solid ice on top it. We actually got to go outside and play in it. Schools have been closed all week. Aaron got to stay home. (Too bad he had his laptop, cause it was torture having him here and having to keep the kids from pestering him since he was really busy!!) Everything in the whole city shuts down at any mention of snow since Oregon owns all of like 3 snow plows!! After this we all went in and had a tea party with yummy homemade hot cocoa!Little Noah was inside the house with me making cookies because he refused to wear "globs" (gloves) and didn't like how cold his hands got!This is the first snow man Arwen ever built...and she loved him!Aaron and Arwen built this snow man one day. Arwen had fun licking him. Then, the next day when we sent the kids out to play, we looked out and noticed our snow man was gone. The kids told us that they ate him! This is the greatest picture ever. Notice how Arwen's glove fell off...and that snow ball hit the lens of our new camera with precision we didn't think klutzy Arwen had. This was the last picture taken this day!!

Usually as in I think we've had one other ice/snow storm since we've been here. They sure are fun when they are infrequent. I wish I hadn’t had everything falling apart at work or I could have played in the snow with the kids more and not actually worked from home. I got quite a bit of playing in anyway. Arwen wasn’t so impressed with building snow forts or men, she’s more a fan of snow ball fights. She’s got a good arm, I took a few right in the nose.

Oh, I'm so jealous. I can't wait to move somewhere someday when I can have snowball fights and build snowforts and men.
