Although a good portion of the Northern Midwest is blanketed in snow today we are enjoying temperatures in the 50's. However, we did have our first significant snowfall of the year last Friday. It was the perfect snow, the kind you hope to wake up to on Christmas morning. I have been waiting all Winter to get some shots of snow, so here they are.
When June was done with preschool we headed outside to build a snowman. Kendall was content to sit (yes sit) in the snow. Truth be told it was wet and deep and she could not run as fast as she likes so she decided to sit and eat the snow. She does not like gloves and they come off as soon as she gets outside.
June and I built our snowman while Kendall watched. June had fun decorating our creation and rearranged all of the accessories more than once.
When we were just about finished Kendall went in the garage to sit down on the step and wait for us. While I gathered our supplies to go inside I found Kendall laying on the garage floor. Can you guess what she was doing? I bet you can't. She was laying on the floor in the murky water and grime from Russ' car, her purple snow suit covered in black muck. No, she was not drinking tire water! What am I gonna do with this one?
Actually, we were out to dinner the other night and Kendall was being herself. A kind lady in the booth next to us was quite taken with my little bundle of energy. Her wise words, "God gave her to you because you have something important to learn from her and she has something important to learn from you." I thought her words were wise and comforting. I hope I learn quick!
