it snowed ALL day yesterday

our new snow boots
(thanks grandma C)
isn't the snow beautiful? i love the snow when no one has walked on it yet. it's so peaceful. have you ever noticed how quiet it is when the snow is falling? it's like time stops. the snow is so special to me. i remember living with my mom in elementary school and waking up every morning and turning around in bed to pull the drapes open, hoping it had snowed during the night. i always wished for snow on my birthday. i remember one birthday (dec. 2 ya'll) waking up to a fresh blanket of snow. it was one of the best birthday presents i "ever did get!"
i built a snowman for brennan. this snow was puuuuuuuurrrrrrrfect for making snowmen (and snowballs, hehe).
i thought it would be so cute to make one just brennan's size and put him next to it...this is what brennan thought about that idea...
this was pretty much how the entire snow day went. i have about 50 pictures of brennan doing this:
lots of pouty faces and crying, but well worth it. doens't he look like a little dough boy!? i was imagining the mom on "a christmas story" bundling up the little brother to go to school, but i just couldn't help myself. lol.
