Snowy snowball fight!

Around here even a small snowfall can lead to big excitement. Traffic disasters, meager attempts at snowmen and sledding. Hey there was hardly any last year so it's been a while since the white stuff came to visit.
I fully admit to not being a fan. Don't like snow at all and would be happy never to see it again. And all those people who say it's so pretty? I like the green trees just fine, thank you very much.

Finally my kids are getting into snow. We have some videos of their first few times in the snow where they were really not enjoying it! But they were thrilled at the prospect of a snowball fight when they looked outside this morning. So out we went. Even though it was pretty mild, there was still a fair bit of whining about cold hands, but overall there was a lot of laughter.

Snowball fights!

Snow baseball?
What do you think?
Naughty or nice?

Random Cuteness

Scenes from the playground.

If it is sunny, we tend to hang out at the school playground a bit longer after school. Sometimes a lot longer, if the weather (and the kids) cooperate. The longer we stay, the higher the chance of Kobes shouting "take my picture Mom!" Here are a few recent pics from our school playground.
There is a big container of emergency supplies next to the playground. That's the backdrop in these first pictures.

Here are the pictures of the actual day. We had tons of fun and now have tons of candy to show for it!
