Thankful Thursday

This is what I'm thankful for today. Not just snow, but a second chance to enjoy the snow! We didn't get outside to play when it snowed at Christmas, so we feel especially blessed that God sent us a great amount of beautiful white powdery goodness! 

Julia had so much fun today. This morning she looked out the window and said, "Mommy can we put our shoes on, and pants on, and sots on, and shirts on, and jattets on, and nose on, and eyes on..." and i'm just sitting there anxious for her to finish and say "and go outside?!" In that moment I just couldn't wait to say "YES! Let's do it!" 

Strangely enough, it took her longer than expected to get ready to go outside. But hey, we did it and wonderful memories were made. The snow was kind of hard this morning so i couldn't really roll it up good and my snowmen were really tiny. So we threw snowballs at each other, and at our window (Riley was just inside, working from home on his laptop). Cue Julia's giggles. 

Then I laid her down to make a snow angel, she didn't really get it but laughed! My mental camera was flashing like crazy. The look on her face as she lied there with her eyes closed tightly and the giddy smile that stretched across her precious face. Ahhh yes, i am thankful.

While I was cooking dinner, Riley took her outside again, this time in the back of our apartment, there was a lot thicker snow. He pulled out a broken down box from the patio and used it as a sled. I couldn't get very good pix since I was taking them from inside the glass door, but I'm just thankful that our camera stayed awake long enough to capture a couple. (It's been majorly on the fritz lately, which is another reason to be thankful that we'll be getting our Nikon soon!)

From the sound of it (good ol' meteorologists makin' those economists look good!), we should get to have more snowy fun tomorrow. Woohoo! What are you thankful for?
