And More Snow

The snow excitement continued throughout last night. When the big girls got home from school we stayed outside as long as we could stand it. Sage gave up first and headed inside. Haven and Ryder refused to go in until after Savannah finished building her snowman. She has some sort of snowman building gene. When we she sees snow, she can't rest until she has built a snowman. Haven finally approached me, visibly shivering, and asked if she could go in. Ryder was taken in kicking and screaming, partly because he was loving the snow, and partly because he thought that Savannah had used his hat for the snowman. The best part, for Savannah and Sage, came when Clark County announced that schools would be closed the next day. We are ill-prepared for snowy roads here.

All the trees were starting to sag under the weight of the very wet snow.

They all smiled all afternoon.

Larry's progress (Haven named him).

Larry is a happy guy too.

Haven helped with the snowman. She also pulled a chunk of snow off the bottom of her boot. She thought that was pretty weird.

Ryder spent a lot of time that afternoon trying to throw snowballs at me. It didn't always work, but he had a good time.

And here is Ryder after a hard day of playing in the snow.

I took the time to scrape off the driveway (with a floor scraper). I'm not sure why I bothered. It was covered again by the time I finished.

As I write this, it sounds like it is raining outside. In actuality, the snow is melting and dripping off the roof. Oh well. It was fun while it lasted. There is a chance we could get some more on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Now that would be super exciting.

Larry is the best! Savannah does love to build snowmen! Love the pictures and I still can hardly believe it snowed that much in Vegas.

I'm sorry, but a snowman can not be named Larry.
