Snow business!!!

What a weekend, after all the illness and bleakness of January...February swept in with a flurry (or two) of snow...
The long awaited snow eventually (the children have been so wanting snow since before Christmas) arrived and I had two happy children...On Saturday morning the children raised me from my slumber by one child jumping on me whilst the other pulled back the curtains and both shouted 'Mommy Mommy its snowed'
So without losing any time...on went the winter layers, the hand knits, we pulled our wellies on and ran into the garden giggling...
Ofcourse with all this activity in the garden one of our other family members could not wait to get out and join us. Archie the rabbit so loves some company whilst he is free ranging...He binkied about (jumped and lept...which is rabbit speak for 'I am happy') and we generally all got very wet...

After a couple of miss-fired snowballs Archie gave up and had a little grooming session...
Meanwhile a snowman HAD to be built...OK its a little one...but never the less he is still our snowman and deserves his own nose and eyes...
The stream at the bottom of the hill I live on looked ever so sweet....almost fairy like...
After a few hours the chill factor started to reach our toes and the rosey cheeks started to turn a shade near to blue...so we came inside and warmed our hands and tummies with some proper Hot Chocolate made with melted chocolate and some muffins....
PS My Spell check on my posting is still not working EK!!! So I am going to hold on to Weird Bunny's comment on my last post...Yep thats a good one;-)

Your snowman is sooo cute! We're getting walloped with snow again, today. I'm so tired of it, so it's nice to see someone having a bit of fun.

In that second picture, Archie looks like he might be thinking: "Bunneh 'tocks are supposed to be warm. Please to be taking me inside now!"

Yum, that chocolate looks fantastic. And, I just really feel the need to tell you that you are a great mother. What a blessing you are to your children! And I am glad that all the ailments have left your home.

Caroline said...

Oh not fair - we were threatened/promised some snow but it didn't happen - just lots of wind instead :( my kiddies are very jealous of the fun yours are having in the snow!

Look at that happy bunny!! It was lovely to look at snow through fresh eyes. The novelty is usually gone by February in Minne"snow"ta.

Sarah said...

We don't get to see much of that white stuff down here in the South West - the rabbit certainly seemed to like it though

Lovely pictures and I now have a bad attack of snow envy!! We never seem to get it here and I want the children to find out how much fun it is!!!

Glad you all had a lovely time - well worth being pulled out of bed for :)

Ruth said...

Yup I have snow envy too. I am hoping here in East Anglia we get some before spring. Everything looks so pretty in the snow and I love that stillness it brings.

Queen of the froggers said...

Great snow, I don't think that we will get any here. Snowman looks fab!

French Knots said...

Wasn't the snow super, we only had a bit but went out and made the most of it.
Looks like Archie is enjoying it too!
