LeT It SnOw...lEt iT sNoW...LeT It SnOw!!

This morning we woke up to a fun surprise....SNOW falling in our backyard!!  Huge flakes of snow are still falling!  We had enough snow by lunch time to build a SNOWMAN!  It was so much fun!  Mason played out there for six hours!  (with a few HOT CHOCOLATE breaks of course)  He loved wearing his "glubbs" (gloves) his grandma gave him yesterday.  That was lucky timing!  
Mason cut the snow with his mower...
Loved making snowballs and then hitting them with his golf clubs
this was a classic picture I just had to take
I had Mason taste the snow
He loved making footprints
Shay even got in on the action.  I set her outside for a few minutes.  She liked it.  This is her reaching to touch some snow.

I loved that the snow stuck to her lashes :)

I love this face she made when the snow hit her face

Catching snowflakes
Pure joy
Hitting golf ball and snow balls

There are trucks on his gloves!  He loves them!
A picture of Mason through the window.  Mom got cold and had to go inside for a few minutes.  I love the look on his face...priceless!
I love this kid!

Watching the snow fall (yes he was in his P.J.'s & flip flops at first)
Mason's Walking in a Winter Wonderland ;)
Here is Mason's take on a snowman...Firehat, and golf balls for the eyes :)

The traditional snowman.  Those cookies didn't last long for the eyes.  They disappeared quickly and were replaced with golf balls.

Mason was so proud!  This was his first snowman.  Actually, this is his first time even seeing snow.  

catching snowflakes on his tougue
What a fun day!

I was definitely surprised by the snow here! Love Shay's face when it is hitting her face. Oh and I met your sister at the doctor's office today. Funny!

Looks fun - i love snow days! Hey Meg this is Steph (rosen) Brown. I like seeing what you are up to - and just had a random question - i know you are an expert photographer, and i am not at all but want to get a good camera and wondered if you had suggestions or what one you like! I want great pictures of my little family!
